Quote: 'He is not in a rush to announce about it'

"They are Rohit's top choices for the role as the material demands an actor who is adept at action. If all goes well, the actioner will roll by December," said a source. "Though it marks Rohit's foray into the OTT world, he is not in a rush to announce it and will probably do so only after the release date of Sooryavanshi is finalized."

Details: Shetty's new project gets added to his copverse

If the project takes off, this web series will get added to Shetty's expanding copverse. To note, he has already helmed three films revolving around police officers namely Singham and Singham Returns that starred Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh's Simmba. He is also working on a fourth cop drama titled Sooryavanshi, which has Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.

Career: For now, all the three are busy with other projects

For now, Kaushal, Malhotra and Shroff are busy with other projects. Kaushal is set to be seen in Sardar Udham Singh, which will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in October. Shroff, on the other hand, is set to star in Ganapath alongside Kriti Sanon. Meanwhile, Malhotra, who set cash registers afire with Shershaah, will next be seen in Mission Majnu opposite Rashmika Mandanna.
