Ranveer Singh, about Simmba's first-day collection, said, "It is an incredibly humbling moment for me. As an artist, I have always tried to experiment, and I am happy that my content choices are being loved by audiences who want to see me break my mould every single time I come on screen," as reported in the Indian Express.
2018 has been an incredible year for Ranveer Singh who gave two of the biggest films of his career so far.
Simmba is an official remake of the Telugu film Temper. The movie narrates the story of a dishonest cop, Sangram Bhalerao (played by Ranveer), who falls in love with Shagun (played by Sara Ali Khan). Sangram's life is suddenly changed when a 19-year-old medical student Aakruti Dave, who he considers as his younger sister, gets raped and murdered.
Simmba was marketed as the spin-off of Ajay Devgn's Singham. Ajay Devgn plays the character of Bajirao Singham, along with Ranveer Singh's Sangram Bhalerao. Simmba was released on December 28 and is Sara's second movie after Kedarnath.
Simmba is produced under the banner of Rohit Shetty's Rohit Shetty Picturez and Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. Apart from Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer, Simmba's star cast includes Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and the lead actors of Golmaal series Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade and Arshad Warsi in cameo appearances.
