Together with Rohit, who I genuinely love as a brother and whose work ethic I respect and share, I can only promise 'Mother of all Entertainers'! Cant wait to say 'roll camera' for this one," Farah said in a statement.

Farah has earlier directed films such as ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Main Hoon Na’.

Fresh off the success of 'Simmba', Rohit said it's a privilege for his production company to have Farah on board to direct a film for them as she is extremely talented and hardworking. "It will definitely be a wonderful association. I can't wait to start working with this extremely talented powerhouse," he added.

In addition to Hindi films, Rohit Shetty Picturez has plans to address the digital content consuming audience with original web series and cater to Rohit's younger fans with animated content like "Little Singham".

Rohit Shetty is currently busy with his next directorial venture 'Sooryavanshi', which, like 'Singham' and 'Simmba' is a cop-drama as well. The film stars Ajay Devgn in the lead role.
