Mumbai: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Singh Is Kinng’ became a hit because it had the perfect elements for a commercial success. It had comedy, romance and the heart in the right place. The songs from this movie also became an instant hit.

Ranveer Singh, as per a report on Mid-Day, was offered the sequel of this movie, which he refused. The reason Ranveer turned down the offer according to the daily, was because he had already committed to play a Sardar in his debut director Maneesh Sharma’s next movie.

 

A trade source told Mid-Day, "Ranveer and producer Shailendra Singh had a couple of meetings for narration. The actor loved ‘Sher Singh's story. But Shailendra was shocked to receive a call from Ranveer's manager and Yash Raj Films' talent management group head, Ashish Patil, who told him that Ranveer has bowed out of the film. Ranveer and Shailendra haven't communicated since then. The producer has been meeting other stars for ‘Sher Singh’."

Akshay had worked in Prabhudheva’s ‘Singh Is Bliing’ in 2015, but they did not term it ‘Singh Is Kinng’s sequel.

Currently Ranveer is awaiting the release of ‘Padmavat’ and is prepping for ‘Gully Boys’. Akshay too is awaiting the release of ‘Padman’ and ‘2.0’, has wrapped up ‘Gold’ and is prepping for ‘Kesari’. He has also been roped in for ‘Mogul’, a biopic on Gulshan Kumar, the pioneer of the music industry.
