Simmba movie LIVE UPDATES: The Ranveer Singh starrer is helmed by Rohit Shetty.

Starring Ranveer Singh in and as Simmba, the film directed by Rohit Shetty has hit the theaters. Sara Ali Khan plays Ranveer’s love interest in the film and from the trailer, it looks like Ajay Devgn’s Singham will also play a significant role in the film.

Simmba: Our verdict

The only reason to watch Simmba then is Ranveer Singh. In his sharp moochh sticking up at both ends, shiny bronzed face, broad shoulders filling out, eventually, the khakee uniform, Singh is Simmba. Striding into cop stations, wading into ‘goondas’, losing his heart to the girl across the road Shagun (Ali Khan), Singh is fully alive to the moment, knowing that he is working in a template, aware that he has to keep breaking out.

Rohit Shetty talks about his genre of filmmaking

In an interview, Simmba director Rohit Shetty said,  "When I start writing a script and shooting it, all I keep in my mind is my audience. The people who come to watch my films are the family audience. If I were trying to prove a point, I would not have been here. There are people who will dislike what I do, but I know that there is an audience that loves my cinema. So, you have to come to terms with the fact that a certain section of the audience might not love your films. One can only hope that they like your films at some point. I deal with the problems of the middle class and that’s why my films are termed massy. I can’t solve their problems, but at least, I can entertain them. What I find hypocritical is, when someone curses in English, it is considered cool and not massy. However, when the same curses are in Hindi, the ‘massy’ tag is promptly added. I don’t fear my film being a flop, but I do fear losing the audience that loves my cinema."
