You do it for the sheer pleasure of being on set with them and sharing their vision. “Kaithi,” for which the Hindi title is yet to be finalized, is slated to hit the courts early next year and “Singham 3” is slated to start rolling around October, he shared. There is no set timeline for “Raid 2,” “Chanakya” and “Golmaal 5,” the actor said, adding that the pandemic had caused the industry to “waste a few years”. “So until the backlog clears up, I can’t see that far into the future,” he said.
