While a few reports had suggested Janhvi Kapoor and Priya Prakash Varrier were being considered, news has been confirmed by the makers that it is Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan who will play the female lead in the Rohit Shetty directorial Simmba. Sara Ali Khan will share screen space with Ranveer Singh in the cop drama, which will hit the screens on December 28, 2018.

Ranveer Singh’s look as the notorious cop Sangram Bhalerao was released by the film’s team, the news of Sara Ali Khan starring alongside Ranveer has made audiences eager to witness their on-screen chemistry.

A statement from Dharma Productions read, “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, which will be directed by Rohit. Sara will be seen opposite Ranveer, who plays the role of a notorious cop Sangram Bhalerao.”

Sara is presently shooting for her debut film Kedarnath. The movie, which also stars Sushant Singh Rajput, is expected to release on December 28, 2018. Simmba and Kedarnath – the two releases are in the space of one week.

Simmba is the official Bollywood remake of Jr NTR’s Telugu hit Temper. “We have bought the rights of Temper but our film is not exactly a remake. We wanted to take four-five scenes from Temper but we thought it’s better to buy the rights. It’s what we did with Singham,” Rohit Shetty had mentioned in an earlier interview.

In Simmba, Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of a police officer for the first time in his career. Talking to IANS about his role in Simmba, Ranveer had said, “Sangram Bhale Rao aka Simmba… He is a cop in the film. I am really very excited about collaborating with Rohit Shetty, more than anyone else. He is the king of masala films, which are loved more than any other films. So this is something I believe I was born to do and I am looking forward to it.”
