Ranveer Singh will soon kick-off Rohit Shetty’s Simmba. But before that, the actor will film a special video to introduce his character to his fans, band baaja et al.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “He will make a stylish entry to the hoot of ‘Aala re aala Simmba aala.’ The idea to introduce Ranveer in his new avatar stems from the fact that it’s been a while since he has been seen in an action-packed masala movie.” Ranveer will don the uniform of a cop for the first time for Simmba and his character’s name is Sangram Bhalerao. Since he is a Maharashtrian cop, the Padmaavat actor will be seen surrounded by dholwallahs from Nasik in the video.
In an interview earlier with Mumbai Mirror, Rohit Shetty had said, “It’s a hardcore commercial action film that neither Ranveer nor I have done before. We are working on the final draft at the moment and it goes on the floors by mid-next year. We have bought the rights of the South film Temper (the 2015 Puri Jagannath directorial) from which our film is inspired.”
Ranveer Singh is also excited about this project given that this quirky film will be a home run for him. “After Gully Boy I have Rohit Shetty. It’s a full on masala entertainer, which is something I have been wanting to do for such a long time. It’s got all the ingredients — action, comedy, drama, romance, Songs. All the good stuff that goes into a Rohit Shetty film. I feel like I have been honest with my work and I have actually earned the distinction of being Rohit Shetty leading man. I am very excited about that. The kind of films I grew up to and the kind of film that reaches out to a broad spectrum of audience, I am very lucky to have that film coming up,” Ranveer told IANS
This will also be a first when Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar will come together for a film.. Simmba is scheduled to hit the theatres on December 28.
