Ranveer Singh was recently holidaying in Switzerland and kept all of us entertained with his fun and quirky posts on social media. He channeled his inner Freddie Mercury and won our hearts over again and then turned into Charlie Chaplin to give us some awe-inspiring moments with the unbelievable resemblance. And now, the hot stepper is back in the bay. He has already wrapped up Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy‘ with Alia Bhatt and is now getting ready for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’ opposite Sara Ali Khan. The crew will get on the sets next month onwards. But before that, he needs to train for his role.
This requires getting the diction right of a Marathi manus as he plays a cop Sangram Bhalerao in the film. But this is the easy part. Ranveer Singh has been asked by his director to transform his body and bulk up like never before. Talking about the brief that he got from Rohit about the Simmba body, Ranveer revealed, “He is very keen that I have big muscles in the film. He has told me — Jab tu wardi pehenega na to wardi phatni chahiye.” Well, we already have seen what Ranveer did with his avatar for his Alauddin Khilji role in Padmaavat. He shed most of it for Gully Boy. And now he will pump up muscles once again.
We wonder if with his Simmba body, Ranveer would outdo his Padmaavat bulk up. The actor is very excited about working with Rohit for the first time. “Simmba is my first collaboration with Rohit Shetty which I know people are really excited about and me more than anyone to be diving into the masala genre with king of the genre.” He further added, “It is an incredible opportunity that I am extremely excited to be commencing… shooting in about a month’s time.” He has already started prepping for the film since yesterday (May 3, Thursday).
Ranveer also has the Kapil Dev biopic – ’83 – in his kitty and he is slated to start work on that by the end of this year. The film will release in August 2019 while Simmba is slated for a 28 December 2018 release date.
