Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty‘s Simmba is one of the most exciting films of the year. And even before the film goes on floors, it is being surrounded by so much buzz over the female lead. The movie is an official remake of Jr NTR’s Temper. Knowing the plot of the Telugu film, we can tell you that a strong woman character is needed to play this part. And while Ranveer has been finalised to play Jr NTR’s role, an actress is yet to be cast in Kajal Aggarwal’s role from the original.
There have been several actresses linked with the movie, from Sara Ali Khan to Janhvi Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and a couple other stars. And even though the latest reports suggested that Rohit had finalised Priya Prakash Varrier for the movie, let us tell you that this is so not true.
A source close to the film revealed to us exclusively, “Priya Prakash Varrier might have caught everyone’s attention, but she will not be a part of Simmba. In fact, she was not even in the running for the leading lady’s role, so we don’t know where these rumours are coming from. An announcement concerning the actress will be made soon.” But if not Priya Prakash Varrier, who should be cast opposite Ranveer in Simmba? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below!
Ranveer and Rohit have already finished the final script narration a couple of days back. The pre-production work is now in full swing and the movie should go on floors by May 2018. The makers have planned to release the film on December 28, 2018. But with Salman Khan’s Dabbang 3 also being scheduled to release on the same day, Simmba might have to change its release date.
