The cop drama is also Ranveer’s fourth and Sara’s first film to have crossed Rs 100 crore at the Box Office. Apart from the actor’s starry appeal, the content of Simmba is attracting the audience to theatres. The film also has special appearances by Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar, that has added to the entire buzz. The good word-of-mouth combined with an effective promotion is working in favour of Simmba.
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”.
