Rohit Shetty is best known for his action-packed film, Singham, starring Ajay Devgn. His upcoming Bollywood film, Simmba, is also an action-drama with a police officer as the protagonist. This time, however, it’s however not Ajay Devgn playing the cop. The notorious Ranveer Singh will star in this Rohit Shetty film, which is produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions.
Everyone’s favorite actor, Ranveer Singh will be playing the role of Police Officer Sangram Bhalerao in Simmba, his first collaboration with Rohit Shetty. The first look was released last year in December, which has Ranveer Singh in his avatar, à la Chulbul Pandey. Ranveer’s Sangram Bhalerao looks more of a fun and jovial cop than Ajay Devgn’s Bajirao Singham who looked fierce. But then, it is too soon to comment on the character right now.
Simmba will also star the daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh – Sara Ali Khan. The actress made her debut with the film, Kedarnath, opposite Sushant Singh Rajput and this will be her second film that releases within a month of her debut. Simmba releases on the 28th of December, 2018.
The shoot for the film began in June and a video was released on the 6th of June, 2018 by Dharma Productions, which featured not just the actors Ranveer and Sara, but also director Rohit Shetty and producer Karan Johar.
This fun video shows Ranveer as Sangram Bhalerao delivering the dialogue “Three-star police inspector Sangram Bhalerao. Jo deto traas tyacha mi gheto class”, which is interrupted immediately by Rohit Shetty since the dialogue is actually a part of the film. There is also a fun part featuring Sara that will make you laugh.
Simmba is a remake of the hit Telugu film – Temper – starring Jr NTR and Kajal Aggarwal. Will this film enjoy the same level of success as its original? We’ll find out soon!
