sara ali khan, the young bud of the Pataudi family, will be seen opposite ranveer singh in the movie “Simmba”. The producer of the film Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty took to Instagram and Twitter to announce the female lead of the film.

The movie is an adaptation of the Telegu movie “Temper”. The Bollywood debut is not going to be a complete copy paste of the Telegu movie but only some remarkable scenes will be included. It has been a long time since Rohit Shetty has presented this thought in the media but with the first look of the movie poster, which arrived on Dec. 17, 2017, the fact was confirmed.

Controversy regarding 'Simmba':

However, there were a lot of questions posed to the cast and crew members of “Simmba” regarding its use of “mm” in the name of the movie which was figured out by the director of the film, Rohit Shetty.

According to him, the name Simba could not be used due to the copyright issues.

The popular Disney movie “The Lion King” featuring a lion cub is also named Simba and due to this an extra “m” was added to the name of the movie “Simmba”.

The plot of the movie:

Reportedly Ranveer Singh will portray a role of a corrupt police officer, Daya in the flick. We will also get a chance to witness many romantic scenes between the lead pair, Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in the movie. The movie is all set to release on December 18, 2018.

There were reports that new Malayalam sensation, the 'Wink Girl' Priya Prakash Varrier would be the lead heroine opposite Ranveer Singh.

But with this announcement, the makers have pulled the curtains on the rumor. It is also not ruled out that Priya might make a special appearance in the film.
