Now that the covid break finally comes to a slight release the 4 Bollywood’s biggest filmmakers are planning to boost their film franchises forward and create different universes. This would guarantee entertainment for all the people coming out suffering from boredom.


As we all know and have seen covid19 pandemic has brought a storm in the cinema industry bringing many movie productions to a complete stalemate causing losses all over. But now that the tension is reduced the movies are starting to come out slowly. While the small house movies planning to release in the digital market the big and high production movies are waiting to create an impact on the big screens. We have witnessed many multi-star but not as big as to be considered to be a franchise.


But now we hear four filmmakers are planning four different universes that will have some of the biggest stars coming together.
Robot Shetty was the first one of the four to come up with his thought in Indian cinema with his movie Simmba in which he featured Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, and Ranveer Singh. In Shetty’s cop, the universe we will be having five different cops coming together. Along with the three stars, there will be two more cops in the whole universe – featuring one male star and a policewoman as well. Motivated by this the other 3 film directors also planning to bring in their universe.

Rohit Shetty started the movement when he got Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, and Ranveer Singh together for his films Simmba and now Sooryavanshi. Shetty’s cop universe will have five different cop franchises coming together. Along with the three Gen-Y stars, there will be two more cops in the whole universe – featuring one male star and a policewoman as well. Taking that idea ahead will be three other top filmmakers who have decided to convert their franchises into universes. 

Aditya Chopra has decided to create a very own spy universe with three of his spy franchises and he’s already discussed it with his battalion and the main lead actors of his films. Salman Khan’s character Tiger, along with Hrithik Roshan’s Kabir from WAR and now, Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathan from the film Pathan will be joining hands together for the first time in the Siddharth Anand directorial,  Stich also features John Abraham and Deepika Padukone.

Sajid Nadiadwala is also planning to fuse an entire comedy Avengers universe, with the entire star cast of Housefull. He is bringing in all the actors from all his Housefull installments for Housefull 5. Actors being Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Deepika Padukone, Kriti Sanon, Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez and others who have all been part of the comedy franchise in the last few years will be seen in this mega blast.
Lastly, We have the horror universe with Dinesh Vijan conceptualizing an entire blend of projects like Raj Kumar Rao-Shraddha Kapoor’s Stree, Go Goa Gone, Janhvi Kapoor’s Roohi Afza, and now, Varun Dhawan-Kriti Sanon’s Bhediya.
