Earlier, talking about the content of Simmba, Ranveer told Mid-Day, “Simmba is a potboiler — a thali of romance, action, comedy, and drama. But some of the intense scenes in Simmba will give you goosebumps. I am hopeful that this (Simmba) will change how masala films are seen as a genre in this country”.
