Sara is currently shooting for her debut film Kedarnath. The film, which also stars Sushant Singh Rajput, is expected to release on December 28, 2018. If the makers of Simmba and Kedarnath stick to their release dates, Sara will have two releases in the space of one week. Now, that would be a dream launch.
Simmba is the official Bollywood remake of Jr NTR’s Telugu hit Temper. “We have bought the rights of Temper but our film is not exactly a remake. We wanted to take four-five scenes from Temper but we thought it’s better to buy the rights. It’s what we did with Singham,” Rohit Shetty was quoted as saying in an earlier interview.
In Simmba, Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of a police officer for the first time in his career. Talking to IANS about his role in Simmba, Ranveer had said, “Sangram Bhale Rao aka Simmba… He is a cop in the film. I am really very excited about collaborating with Rohit Shetty, more than anyone else. He is the king of masala films, which are loved more than any other films. So this is something I believe I was born to do and I am looking forward to it.”
