Fans of Ranveer Singh’s hit cop action film Simmba have reasons to rejoice. After his first successful solo outing and a cameo in the recently-released Sooryavanshi, Simmba is soon set to be seen again on screen.
During a recent interaction, Ranveer not only confirmed that a sequel to Rohit Shetty’s 2018 hit is definitely happening but also that when it does, he will be starring in it. However, Ranveer did not give a time frame on when the film is to go on floors.
Speaking to Bollywood Life, Ranveer spoke about Simmba 2 and said, “If God willing, it will definitely happen.” The actor revealed that Rohit Shetty had always intended Simmba to be a franchise. “It was always intended to become a franchise. Whenever Rohit sir does make it, I will always be game because Simmba is my favourite character to play,” he added.
Simmba, directed by Rohit Shetty, starred Ranveer along with Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood with a cameo by Ajay Devgn, who reprised his role from Rohit’s Singham series. The film, which was a remake of the 2015 Telugu film Temper, was a commercial success, grossing over ₹400 crore at the box office worldwide.
The two characters- Simmba and Singham- again played by Ajay and Ranveer, were also seen in the 2021 Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi, also directed by Rohit Shetty. Together, these three titles make up Rohit Shetty’s cop universe.
