The movie may be six months away but that has not stopped Simmba from hogging the headlines. Ever since the first poster of the movie was released, we cannot help but feel excitement about the upcoming comedy drama. Rohit Shetty’s movies have a reputation of being too ambitious, and Simmba is no different. First, the filmmaker got Ranveer Singh on board for the project. This is their first feature film collaboration, having previously worked together on the short film, Ranveer Ching Returns. Karan Johar is set to produce, which brought on board star kid and newbie, Sara Ali Khan. Simmba was also touted to be the young debutante’s first film, since the delay in the release of Kedarnath. But recent reports suggest that the Abhishek Kapoor film will indeed release first, making Simmba Sara’s second film.
The shooting for Simmba has commenced. You can clearly see similarities between Simmba and Rohit Shetty’s Singham, with Ranveer bringing his own charm to the movie. Here are a few official photos from the film.
