Rohit Shetty, who created Bollywood’s squeaky clean, tough-as-nails super cop Singham, now gives us the alter ego to that policeman – a roguish, devil-may-care man in khaki who also is the nemesis of gangsters, the underworld and all scum of society and goes by the name of Simmba! Ajay Devgn as Singham is gritty and poker-faced, like chilled steel in the face of all heat; whereas Ranveer Singh as Simmba is outrageous, fun-and-games and volatile!
PeepingMoon.com was invited to Rohit Shetty’s office for a blasting private screening of the Simmba trailer just now with the director himself. He sat on the edge of the seat and watched it closely himself. At the end, we had one question for Rohit. What did he feel when he saw the trailer? “I loved it and I’m very happy with it,” he admitted.

Here’s what we think:
S: Simmba is sexy because Ranveer Singh is Bollywood’s new poster boy and sex symbol. He’s savvy as the super cop, intensely brooding one moment and crazily explosive the next. Like a stack of dynamite waiting to explode. And he looks hot in khaki, too.
I: Intense, that’s the word to describe the smashing action and mad fire blazing in Ranveer’s eyes when he’s on the rampage. This is the Khilji look in Khaki and all evil doers had better run and hide coz Simmba’s gonna get you!
M: Masti, what’s a Rohit Shetty film and that too with Ranveer Singh in the lead if it’s not packed with masti from start till end? Crew on the sets of Simmba say there was so much of it going around that they didn’t know when the shot was taken because the film is uproarious in every frame.
M: Mean and macho, there is a twist in the tale somewhere, the trailer indicates that Simmba has a mean streak in his machismo and somewhere down the track he has a change of heart. Let’s wait for it, then.
B: Badass, that’s Sonu Sood’s character in Simmba, a kind of coincidence that the Bollywood heavy plays a baddie once again in a cop drama. Remember he got his chops busted by Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg first? Now it’s Simmba’s turn!
A: Action, the Rohit Shetty kind, with man and machine exploding and flying in the air, and also action of the romantic kind, with Sara Ali Khan still wet from the floods of Kedarnath cozying up to Ranveer on a Triumph motorbike as they zip down the Goa highway.
The trailer of the film will be out on December 3, 2018.
