Where to Watch Singham (Stream)

  • Singham serves as the first installment of Rohit Shetty’s Cop Universe.
  • After the success of the Tamil film Singam, directed by Hari in 2010, the film’s remake rights were sold by the producers for Hindi and Kannada versions.
  • The co-producers of the Tamil version, Reliance Big Pictures purchased the Hindi remake rights and announced in November 2010 that the version would feature Rohit Shetty as director and Ajay Devgn in the lead role.
  • Prakash Raj was signed on to reprise his role as the antagonist from the original, whilst reports emerged that Asin and Anushka Shetty were being considered for the female lead role.
  • In mid-February 2011, Kajal Aggarwal, an actress who predominantly features in South Indian films was signed in as the female lead.
  • Singham went on floors in November 2010, with its scheduled cast.
  • The first schedule began in early March 2011 with action sequences shot in Goa featuring technicians from South India.
  • A scene with Prakash Raj and Ajay Devgn was shot in Goregaon in Mumbai with around 500 junior artists as villagers. Another scene was shot at Vagator in Goa for which 100 police jeeps were called.
  • The shooting was stalled by the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) members who demanded ₹45 lakh to be paid to the workers when it was being shot in Film City in Mumbai.
  • Singham had been removed from cinemas in Karnataka while some cinemas had canceled the shows following pressure from various groups protesting against derogatory statements against the Kannadigas. There was a demand to remove such scenes from the film and the filmmakers contemplated on the next course of action.
  • Singham commenced in Karnataka after the removal of some “objectionable” dialogues, a day after disruptions in its screening.
  • The music video for the 2020 Black Eyed Peas song “Action” pays tribute to Indian film action scenes, including Singham.
  • Singham was theatrically released on 22 July 2011 on 2000 screens worldwide with 1500 prints excluding overseas. The film’s DVD was released on 23 August 2011. The Delhi High Court, upon Reliance Entertainment’s request, issued an order to all Indian ISPs to block file-sharing sites to prevent unauthorized sharing of Singham.
  • Commemorating the film’s ninth anniversary, Devgn revealed in a throwback post on his social media handles that the film had been made available to stream on Amazon Prime Video. Five months later, it was also simultaneously made available on Netflix.
  • An animated series based on Singham premiered on Discovery Kids (India) in April 2018.
  • Singham Returns, a sequel to Singham directed by Shetty and produced by Ajay Devgn Films, was released in 2014. The plot is loosely based on the 1993 Malayalam film Ekalavyan.
  • Simmba, a spin-off to Singham directed by Shetty and starring Ranveer Singh, was released in 2018. Devgn reprises his role in a special appearance. Another sequence or spin-off, Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar as another DCP named Veer Sooryavanshi who join hands with Simmba and Singham to stop a terrorist attack on Mumbai is directed again by Shetty. All these films are set in the Cop Universe.
