Vicky Kaushal on Simmba trailer

Uri actor Vicky Kaushal tweeted the Simmba trailer and wrote along, "Tod taad fod faad blockbuster trailer! #SIMMBATRAILER"

It's a huge honour for me to be Rohit Shetty's leading man, says Ranveer Singh

"Nobody projects heroes quite like Rohit Shetty. That's why every leading man wants to be in a Rohit Shetty film because you know the way he is going to present you, nobody else can. It's been a huge honour and privilege for me to be his leading man," Ranveer Singh said at the trailer launch of Simmba.

Our verdict

While Ranveer’s Marathi accent is spot on, his beefed-up physique and a moustache is something his fans will get to see after a long time. Simmba’s transition from a bad cop to one fighting for justice is the crux of this power-packed film. For those who might miss it, there is even a reference to Salman Khan’s Robinhood from Dabangg. The trailer ends with Ajay Devgn shattering some glass windows and making an entry in his SUV again, as the Singham track plays in the background.
