This will be the first time Ranveer Singh will be playing the role of a cop. Talking about Simmba, Ranveer Singh said that masala movies are the holy grail of mainstream Hindi films, and is happy to step into the zone with Rohit Shetty's Simmba. In Simmba, Ranveer will be seen playing flamboyant policeman Sangram Bhalerao.

Sara Ali Khan's first masala film

In a very short span of time, Sara Ali Khan has gained an incredible fanbase amongst the youngsters after her debut performance in Kedarnath received an exceptional response. Now, Sara Ali Khan is all set for her second release of the year with Simmba. After Kedarnath, there is tremendous excitement to witness the young actress in an all new avatar, the anticipation has just doubled up after the release of the songs Aankh Maarey and Tere Bin.

Sonu Sood as an antagonist

If Ranveer Singh is playing Sangram Bhalerao, an unscrupulous cop who turns over a new leaf, Sood plays the antagonist in the December 28 offering. No stranger to grey characters - his Chhedi Singh act in Dabangg (2010) was easily his breakthrough role - Sood said the director's clarity of thought made his job easier as an actor.

Ajay Devgn's cameo

Ajay Devgn is back in the avatar of a cop and how! The actor has a cameo appearance in this Rohit Shetty's directorial venture, and his fans can't wait for the glimpse of their very own Singham.
