Ranveer Singh will play a notorious cop Sangram Bhalerao.

A statement from Dharma Productions said, “After the release of the first poster which featured Ranveer Singh, there was immense curiosity on who would be cast as the film’s female lead. Now it’s confirmed. Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar have signed Sara Ali Khan for the film, opposite Ranveer, who plays the role of a notorious cop Sangram Bhalerao.”

Sara Ali Khan was supposed to debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kedarnath’ opposite Sushant Singh Rajput but due to some problem the film was puched behind. Now she will have the same day release but with ‘Simmba’.

‘Simmba’ is the official Hindi remake of NTR Jr.’s Telugu blockbuster, ‘Temper’.

“We have bought the rights, but our film is not exactly a remake. We wanted to take four or five scenes from “Temper” and we thought it’s better to buy the rights. It’s what we did with ‘Singham,’” said Shetty in an earlier interview.

 The film will release around Christmas on Dec. 28, 2018.
