"Rohit and Sajid have met a couple of times to not just discuss the possibilities of collaborating on a film with Salman in the lead but also on the content. Among the many ideas they have discussed, one is a spin-off to the character of Devi Lal Singh aka DEVIL from Kick, Sajid’s successful directorial debut. The 2014 film had an open ending with Salman’s character donning the khaki uniform. If the idea materializes as planned, it could be the take-off for Rohit’s film," a source close to the development informed Mirror.

Mirror writes that before kick-starting the film with Salman, Rohit will finish Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar as a police officer. While Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh are a part of the filmmaker's cop universe, the source said that Salman's entry will depend on how the script and the character turned out.

Rohit's last film was Simmba with Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan.
