It is apparent from the poster that Ranveer Singh plays a cop named Sangram Bhalerao. His quirky expression drops ample hints about Ranveer’s character in the film.
We have see Ranveer essay a variety of roles since his debut in Yash Raj Films’ Band Baaja Baaraat 2010. He played a typical Delhi boy-next-door and subsequently essayed a conman in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. He surprised moviegoers by essaying a much matured character in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera in 2013. But it was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela that helped him redefine his position in the film industry. With films such as Gunday, Kill Dill and Dil Dhadakne Do, Ranveer proved his versatility. However, it was Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani that helped him emerge as an actor par excellence. And now he is all set to send shivers down the spine by essaying Alauddin Khilji in the ace filmmaker’s upcoming film Padmavati.
We have seen Ranveer excel as an actor and we have also watched films delivered by Rohit Shetty. The task master, who has worked with Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan, will add his own magical touch while presenting Ranveer on screen.
Going by the poster, it looks likely that Simmba will be an out and out masala entertainer and given the fact that it has been produced by Dharma productions, it certainly looks promising.
