Ranveer Singh is right now the man of the moment as critics and viewers both have agreed that amidst the airbrushed visuals, his interpretation of the unhinged evil incarnate character Alauddin Khilji is a sight for sore eyes.
Singh, who will soon be seen in Rohit Shetty's upcoming film "Simmba", says a masala entertainer is something he was longing to do.
"After 'Gully Boy' I have Rohit Shetty. It's a full-on masala entertainer, which is something I have been wanting to do for such a long time. It's got all the ingredients -- action, comedy, drama, romance, Songs. All the good stuff that goes into a Rohit Shetty film," Ranveer told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Ranveer is very excited about "Simmba", where he will be seen playing policeman Sangram Bhalerao.
"I feel like I have been honest with my work and I have actually earned the distinction of being Rohit Shetty leading man. I am very excited about that. The kind of films I grew up too and the kind of film that reaches out to a broad spectrum of audience, I am very lucky to have that film coming up," he added.
Presented by Karan Johar, the Reliance Entertainment film has been locked for release on December 28 next year.
This will be the first time Ranveer, Karan and Shetty will be working together.
