Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has won hearts with his role of Sangram Bhalerao in Rohit Shetty's latest release Simmba. The movie minted over Rs 20 crore at the box office on the first day and its collection is expected to rise in the coming week. Ranveer, who is a livewire himself went to a Mumbai theatre to meet and greet fans post-release of Simmba. Now, a video of him sneaking into a theatre to witness audience reaction live is going viral on the internet.
In the video, Ranveer entered the upscale cinema hall wearing black hoodie and sunglasses. He was there to witness response of audience on his entry as quirky cop Simmba. Ranveer went live on his Instagram handle and as soon as he made an entry into the film, the audience went gaga and started cheering and whistling. Check out the video.
On a related note, Simmba, the remake of Telugu movie Temper is so far the highest opener of Ranveer Singh. The movie also features Sara Ali Khan, Ashutosh Rana and Sonu Sood in pivotal roles. Talking about his film, the actor said, "It is an incredibly humbling moment for me. As an artist, I have always tried to experiment and I'm 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''.
Rohit Shetty has taken his old and safe route for his latest venture Simmba starring Ranveer. Simmba is the louder version of Shetty's last cop drama Singham in which Devgn played the titular role of an honest cop. However, Simmba (Bhalerao Sangram) is nowhere close to (Bajirao) Singham. Simmba is an orphan and had an inclination towards money and power since childhood. Rohit Shetty has given South Indian treatment to the film and when we say this, we aren't talking about action sequence. The flamboyant and over-the-top mannerism of Shetty's lead character seems too much after a point of time. Simmba seems to be screaming for attention with his not-so-amusing one-liners. Having said that, Ranveer has aptly portrayed the characters, because just like Simmba, our Ranveer is always high on energy. Initially, Simmba is not portrayed as a hero, hence, to make him likable, Rohit Shetty has played with one-liners and Ranveer's machoism. There are Marathi dialogues but it is not difficult to get the gist of the conversation.
On the personal front, Ranveer along with his wife Deepika Padukone has left for New York to ring in New Year.
