Ranveer Singh, who has been very vocal about his love for the ‘Golmaal’ series director Rohit Shetty, said he had to work hard and do good work to earn his spot in the Rohit Shetty film.
Ranveer interacted with media at the trailer launch of the upcoming release, ‘Simmba’ on Monday alongside, director Rohit Shetty, producer Karan Johar actress Sara Ali Khan and more.
When asked why it took so long for Ranveer and Rohit to collaborate, Ranveer said, “You cannot just be a part of Rohit sir’s film. You have to earn it, work hard and do good work then someday you will get the opportunity which I got. I was hoping, manifesting for a long time that I would get a chance to work with him and then we did an ad together which became a big hit.”
“During the ad, I experienced his shooting process and wanted to be a part of his film by any means necessary. And I think it was during the ad’s post then Rohit Sir told me about Simmba and that he would like to work with me.”
Simmba’s trailer shows the life of a corrupt cop who decides to go down the right path after a tragic experience. To everyone’s surprise, the trailer also shows Ajay Devgn’s character Singham in the film.
When asked Singh about working with Ajay Devgn, the original Cop hero, he said, “I am a very big fan of the Singham franchise and I grew up watching Ajay Sir’s films. He is one of my favorite actors and screen idols, the true macho hero. He is a legend and to be sharing space with him is nothing short of a dream for me.”
“To work with him was refreshing. He is so down to earth and is a very chilled out guy. I had the most wonderful experience and fond memories in my heart forever. This whole experience being a part of Simmba, Rohit sir’s world, collaborating with Ajay Sir is really a dream come true.”
‘Simmba’ directed by Rohit Shetty is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production. The film stars Ranveer Singh as the lead alongside debutant Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood.
Simmba is the remake of 2015 Telugu blockbuster Temper and it will release on 28th December, 2018.
