Now, touted as the biggest film of Cop Universe, Singham Again also will come up with a huge star cast including Ajay, Akshay and Ranveer. Earlier, some reports stated that Singham is Shetty’s favourite character and he has plans to up the game with the new cop universe flick.

Meanwhile, reports are abuzz that the helmer is in the mood to add a new element to his Cop Universe. The latest reports suggest that Shetty is in talks with another actor for the next film in his cop universe and would likely cast a new name.

If the latest buzz is anything to go by, Vicky Kaushal is the next actor who will be seen in Shetty’s Cop Universe. It is also speculated that Vicky will have a small intro in Singham Again. It is even said that Deepika Padukone will also have a cameo in the movie.

WION quoted a trade source as saying, "Vicky Kaushal and Rohit Shetty are in talks for Singham Again for a while now and Rohit is chalking out a proper character for Vicky in Singham Again. His cop will be very different from Ranveer, who is an over-the-top character. Rohit wants to explore the heroic and macho side of Vicky in his cop universe."

Further, the source added, "Rohit is working on the script to carve a track for Vicky and is happy with the way things are moving ahead. Official paperwork shall happen once the script is locked. But Rohit is excited to work with an actor in a different space."
