Karan has joined hands with Golmaal Again director Rohit Shetty for a massy action film titled Simmba. The film starring Ranveer Singh in the lead role, will hit the theaters on December 28 next year.
In the teaser poster of this KJo and Rohit Shetty collaboration, Ranveer is in his usual energetic self as he has taken up the role of a cop, Sangram Bhalerao aka Simmba. Sharing the teaser poster of Simmba, Ranveer tweeted, “SANGRAM BHALERAO aka #Simmba !!!! #RohitShetty @karanjohar @RelianceEnt @DharmaMovies @RSPicturez.”
Rohit Shetty has earlier revealed that his new film will feature a few scenes from Junior NTR’s Telugu hit Temper. The director has already acquired the rights of the film. “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 was quoted as saying in an earlier interview.
There are two films already lined up for Christmas 2018. Sushant Singh Rajput's Kedarnath is releasing on 21 December while SRK's Dwarf is also scheduled for Christmas release though an exact release date has not been announced.
