Singham is a Hindi remake of the Tamil Blockbuster film called 'Singam' directed by Mr. Rohit Shetty. In the backdrop of Shivgad, a small village in the border of Maharashtra and Goa, the film revolves around the story of an honest, diligent and honoured Inspector Bajirao Singham played by Mr. Ajay Devgn who fights against injustice and prejudice using his own ethics and principles.
A sudden strike of destiny sets up Singham against the tremendously powerful criminal cum politician Jaykant Shikre (Prakash Raj), challenging his morals and beliefs. Jaykant's powerful planning and force makes Singham land up in the ruling city of Jaykant Shikre, the city of 'Goa', where he leaves no stone unturned to make Singham's life a nightmare to live. Singham's supportive girlfriend Kavya (Kajal Aggarwal) and his tryst with Late Mr. Rakesh Kadam's family makes him realise the importance to bring a change in the system by eradicating the root cause Jaykant Shikre, by not going against the law of force but by being a powerful part of it.
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 also 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 if the antagonist from the original, whilst reports emerged that Asin and Anushka Shetty were being considered for the female lead role. Anushka later declined the offer and was subsequently replaced by Kajal Aggarwal, another actress who had predominantly featured in South Indian films in her career. The first schedule began in early March 2011 with action sequences shot in Goa featuring technicians from South India.
