Talking about the film’s box office records, he said, “Simmba looks like a sure blockbuster. It has everything working in its favour right from the set up, the cast, the director and the music. It’s the film that will surely work wonders at the box office especially with the masses. Simmba is Rohit Shetty’s work who has got his content right more often than not. His content appeals to very wide audience and entertains people by and large. Simmba looks like a film that should be able to achieve that again.”

He added 'Simmba' is all about Rohit’s style of film-making, “This movie is not about Ranveer or Sara. It is about Rohit Shetty as a director and a storyteller. Ranveer has the potential and his last film Padmaavat collected Rs 300 crore at the domestic box office. His intrinsic value is terrific as a star. Rohit catapulating him in a movie and utilising his stardom can go a long way. It can be a blockbuster in the long run.”
