- Simmba releases in December next year
- This is Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar's first collaboration
- Ranveer plays notorious cop Sangram Bhalerao in the movie
The big announcement was made with a poster starring Ranveer Singh as Sangram Bhalerao - the cop he plays, who, it appears, is more popularly known as Simmba in his area of jurisdiction. The poster too has been reviewed as super fun - "Thaanedaar ki kasam mazaa aa gayaaa. Ranveer Singh, Karan Johar, love this first poster of #SIMMBA," read a tweet.
We also spotted an interesting observation on Twitter - "While most actors of his generation do films for an audience that resides between Cuffe Parade & Andheri, Ranveer Singh features in films that are made for the pan Indian market! That makes the difference between being an actor and a star!" read a tweet.
All said and done, the unanimous sentiment on Twitter is that folks are "Thrilled to watch Ranveer as a cop" and that they are "waiting for this madness."
We always needed a full fledged masala action movie for Ranveer and no one could have done it better than Rohit Shetty #Simmba— Khilji's Surbs | (@surabhi207) December 7, 2017
While most actors of his generation do films for an audience that resides between Cuffe Parade & Andheri, @RanveerOfficial features in films that are made for the pan Indian market! THAT makes the difference between being an actor & a star! Love this guy for his choices! #SIMMBA— Akshaye Rathi (@akshayerathi) December 7, 2017
