Mumbai: Ranveer Singh, the man of the moment in Bollywood, has started working on Simmba, a masala entertainer directed by Rohit Shetty.
The dashing actor, who sent shivers down the spine of many with his spellbinding performance and beast-like avatar in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, will play a cop in Shetty’s next.
The Lootera of millions of hearts, Ranveer took to his Instagram handle to post a picture with Rohit Shetty and the Simmba poster on the wall.
Check it out here:
The poster of Simmba was unveiled in December last year. In the quirky poster, we can see Ranveer sporting a handlebar moustache and aviators. Going by the picture, it is evident that the heartthrob will play a cop named Sangram Bhalerao. Ranveer’s funny expression also substantiates the fact that he will play a happy-go-lucky, witty character.
Simmba will be his first with Rohit and the filmmaker’s maiden venture with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions’ banner. The film may have Ajay Devgn on board for a cameo role. Rohit is very close to Ajay and has delivered a number of blockbusters – Golmaal series, Singham, Singham Returns with him already.
Reports suggest that Ranveer will be trained to perform action scenes by Rohit’s team. And if turns out to be true, we can see Ranveer doing some breathtaking action sequences and stunts.
The leading lady and the rest of the cast haven’t been finalised.
Simmba slated to release on December 28 this year will be Ranveer’s first masala entertainer. Here’s wishing him luck.
