- Ranveer Singh to play policeman Sangram Bhalerao in Simmba
- "Earned the distinction of being Rohit's leading man," said Ranveer
- Simmba is scheduled to release in December 2019
The actor, who is excited about bagging his first Rohit Shetty film told IANS, "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 too and the kind of film that reaches out to a broad spectrum of audience, I am very lucky to have that film coming up."
Of Ranveer's comparison with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn, director Rohit Shetty had said that it is obvious for any police-centric movie to be compared to them. "This will always happen. Whenever a cop film will be made people will either draw comparisons with Dabangg or Singham. If the look and part is serious then Singham, if entertaining then Chulbul Pandey. Our cop (Ranveer) is not a Chulbul Pandey kind of a character," reported IANS.
