Padmaavat star Ranveer Singh will be back this December during Christmas 2018 and he will be acting in yet another intense role in the much awaited Rohit Shetty’s cop action-drama Simmba
While endorsing for the men’s grooming product for Nivea Men for which he has been selected as a brand ambassador, Ranveer Singh interacted with media on Saturday. When quizzed about his forthcoming film Simmba, Ranveer said it has been a mind boggling experience while preparing for the role of Sangram ‘Simmba’ Bhalerao. Ranveer further added “In December, there will be an explosion on screen as Simmba is coming up. I have now a month’s break because Rohit Sir has gone to shoot ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, so I am taking care of all my other responsibilities … but it’s been really mind enhancing and soul enhancing experience. “I am working with Rohit Sir, who is king of the genre that I absolutely love. I am really growing as an artiste because it’s not easy acting and performing in mainstream films. You have to actually perform like a kaleidoscope of ‘Rasas’ (flavour), as they say ‘Nav Rasas’ of acting like comedy, drama, action…”.
The role played by Ranveer Singh will be of a rowdy cop which will be similar to Salman Khan’s Chulbul Pandey character from Dabangg. Ranveer also said it will be his biggest film till date and he and Rohit Shetty are ensuring that it turns out to be a wholesome family entertainer. Talking about his experience working with Rohit Shetty, Ranveer says “Over a period of time, we have become very close and he is an amazing leader. His energy and passion of film-making will simply amaze you”.
Simmba also stars Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood in lead roles and is is a remake of 2015 Telugu blockbuster film Temper. Simmba will be jointly produced by Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar and will release on 28th December, 2018.
