Last night, when Sidharth Malhotra teased a glimpse of himself in a cop uniform and a collaboration with Rohit Shetty, I was quite intrigued by it. The excitement just increased by the minute and today when the official announcement is made, it has certainly lived up to my expectations. Sidharth is the latest entrant in Rohit's cop universe that includes Ajay Devgn's Singham, Ranveer Singh's Simmba and Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi, and this time the filmmaker is set to rule the digital space after owning the big screen.
Rohit and Sidharth are teaming up for the most ambitious and action-packed series titled Indian Police Force, which is a fictional series proudly paying an ode to the selfless service, unconditional commitment and fierce patriotism of our police officers across the country who put everything on the line in their call of duty to keep us safe. It aims to present an immersive cop universe story coming from India and rooted in Indian values, and the series will stream on Amazon Prime Video.
Check out the announcement video:
Talking about it, Rohit said,
“Indian Police Force is a very special one for me and I’ve been working on it for years. I’m delighted to be collaborating with Amazon Prime Video to breathe life into this story which will transcend geographies and linguistic barriers, providing me an opportunity to showcase the same to audiences worldwide. I am super excited to be working with the amazingly talented Sidharth Malhotra in this series. I have always strived to push the envelope of action-first entertainment and with this series, I am confident we will create a new benchmark.”
Aparna Purohit - Head of India Originals, Amazon Prime Video, India said,
"We are excited to collaborate with Rohit Shetty on his first ever digital venture with a story that salutes the selfless service and unwavering commitment of our police forces. We are certain that this series will further intensify the action-packed cop-verse that Rohit has built over years. We are delighted to welcome actor Sidharth Malhotra into the Amazon Prime Video family as we embark on our journey of creating this action extravaganza. We are confident that Indian Police Force will provide an immersive and an exhilarating experience to our audiences worldwide!”
I got to see Sidharth in a uniform last year with Shershaah and the actor just left me spellbound with his performance there. Now that he is donning a uniform again, I am expecting the same fireworks, and with Rohit at its helm, I just know it's going to be a spectacle. The filming for the show has begun now and I am just rooting for special appearances by Singham, Simmba and Sooryavanshi in the series. It's going to be one epic team up!
