Filmmaker Rohit Shetty, who is busy shooting for his forthcoming film ‘Simmba’ has said that lead actor of his forthcoming film, Ranveer Singh will be the biggest star of Hindi film industry in coming days.
Rohit Shetty was interacting with media at Jagran Cinema Summit 2018 on Friday in Mumbai.
Sharing his experience working with Ranveer Singh in ‘Simmba’ for the first time, Rohit said, “I am having the best time working with him and the kind of energy he brings and the kind of sincerity he has are amazing. I am happy that I am presenting him as Ranveer Singh. He is not Khilji (Padmavaat) or Bajirao (Bajirao Mastani). He is playing mainstream hero for the first time. He is doing action and song in the film and he is enjoying every bit of it. When we are shooting a dramatic scene at that time, he is like a kid who is hyperactive. He is a sincere boy. He can do comedy, action and dance. He will be the biggest star in the coming day because the kind of sincerity he has and the kind of actor he is.”
Rohit Shetty’s films are considered as commercial potboilers and more than giving a message he tried to entertain the audience through his films but in ‘Singham 2’, he gave certain message to the audience talking about giving message through his films, he said, “We didn’t try to give message as such in ‘Singham 2’ but we tried to go bit real in that film but we are now making ‘Simmba’ though it’s a remake and who have turned the whole script to something else. I think ‘Simmba’ has a strong message though it is presented as a commercial film I think it the best-written film of mine till today and now let the audience see and decide.”
When asked Rohit whether release of Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Zero’ will affect business of ‘Simmba’ because it is releasing merely one week before his film, he said, “Actually we were coming on the same day than me, Karan (Johar) and Shah Rukh sat and decided that let’s not come together because the business of both films will get harm then We shifted ‘Simmba’ to 28th December so it’s not like a competition between us. It was more of a mutual kind of thing between us and me think if your film is good then it will run irrespective of any release date.”
Ranveer will play a rowdy policeman in ‘Simmba’. It also stars Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood in lead roles.
Helmed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Karan Johar and Reliance Entertainment, ‘Simmba’ is scheduled to hit screen on December 28.
