There is surely no branch or department of police as cool and badass as the team handling the Twitter account of Nagpur Police and their latest answer to Bollywood hunk Ranveer Singh‘s foppishness is proof. From canceling challan on ISRO’s Vikram when it failed to respond to using Irrfan Khan’s AIB meme against child begging, the tweets by Nagpur Police are the new sensation on Twitter.
On Wednesday evening, ’83 star Ranveer Singh gave fans a shot of nostalgia as he recreated the 90s style of a crisp white full-sleeved shirt tucked inside a pair of white bellbottoms. With a black leather belt in place and a black and white chequered stole around his neck, Ranveer posed with a red-coloured previous era’s telephone. He captioned the picture with song lyrics, “Whattis mobile number? Whattis your smile number? Whattis your style number? करूँ क्या dial number? (Which number should I dial?)” (sic) from Govinda and Karisma Kapoor’s movie Haseena Maan Jaayegi. Quick to react, Nagpur Police savagely tweeted, “100” with same red-coloured telephone emoji and fans were sent into splits of laughter.
On the professional front, Ranveer will be seen in a cameo with Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi. The fascinating climax scene that will mark the union of Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar on-screen. The film, which is gearing up for 2020 release, is the third film from Rohit’s cop-universe and he had already hinted at the union of the three big actors with Sooryavanshi. Now, as the team gets on a 20-day schedule, Bajirao Singham, Sangram Bhalerao and Veer Sooryavanshi are reuniting to fight the many baddies in the story.
Ranveer has wrapped up the London schedule of Kabir Khan’s ’83 which traces India’s historic victory at the 1983 cricket World Cup. While Ranveer portrays the team’s captain Kapil Dev, Deepika plays his wife Romi. The film is presented by Reliance Entertainment and is scheduled to release on April 10 next year in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Apart from this, Ranveer also has Karan Johar’s Takht in his kitty. Takht is the period drama based on the Mughal era and chronicles the story of two warring brothers.
Another movie in his kitty is Jayeshbhai Jordaar. Directed and written by newcomer Divyang Thakkar, the film has Ranveer playing the titular character while the story is set in Gujarat. Maneesh Sharma, who directed Ranveer in their debut film Band Baaja Baaraat (2010) under YRF, is producing Jayeshbhai Jordaar. The film is expected to go on floors in October this year.
