Sometimes we just can’t get enough of something good and try to recreate it again and again, just like some movies. And what could be better than remaking it in a regional language. The movie in question is Singham, a Bollywood film which had starred actor Ajay Devgn in the lead role, and is now being remade in Punjabi. Ajay had earlier this year announced the remake himself.

The Punjabi version of Singham will star singer Parmish Verma as the lead, and as shooting for the movie begins, Ajay, who is also the producer for the film, posted a picture on his Instagram page wishing the team on their first day of shooting.

Parmish had himself shared a picture of the poster from the movie and written about how he is happy that Bollywood blockbuster film Singham is now getting a Punjabi remake. He also went on to say that it is a proud moment for him that he got to play the lead role, and that the film will be made under Ajay Devgan Productions in association with Kumar Mangat and Proudly Omjee. He also thanked a number of people and God for the opportunity that he has been given, adding the film will release in 2019.

The Punjabi version of Singham will be directed by Navaniat Singh, and along with Ajay, it will be produced by T-series. The Hindi version of Singham had been directed by Rohit Shetty, and apart from Ajay, it had also starred actress Kajal Aggarwal in the lead role, with actor Prakash Raj as the antagonist.

The Bollywood version of Singham is a remake of the 2010 Tamil film Singam featuring Suriya and Anushka Shetty. The film was produced under Reliance Entertainment, which co-produced the original Tamil movie. The theatrical trailer was released in June 2011. A sequel titled Singham Returns was released in August 2014.
