Ranveer Singh made headlines with Rohit Shetty’s Simmba last year. While the songs from the film were a big hit, the project roared at the box office too, with cinema houses filled with moviegoers waiting impatiently to watch the 2018 film. It was the first time Ranveer played a cop and his performance was appreciated worldwide. Speaking about it now, the actor revealed that he always wanted to be Rohit’s hero. "Rohit is the king of the action-entertainment and the masala genre. I always wanted to be his hero and when I got this opportunity, I gave it my all. Both of us are entertainers at our core; we like entertaining the audiences to the hilt," he said.

Singing praises for his character, Ranveer added, "Sangram Bhalerao will always stay extraordinarily close to my heart because I got to act in a film, in a genre which was my home territory. I'm thankful to Rohit Shetty for believing in me and making me part of his power-packed cop universe.” Even his co-star Sara Ali Khan, who is just two films old, could not stop drooling over Rohit.
"The way I define a masala Bollywood film is a Rohit sir film. I think it has every emotion, every flavour is depicted, and in a rather grand way, which makes watching a movie a fulfilling experience. There's drama, romance, good music, large sets, cars are flying. When you come with your friends and family for two hours you get fully transported into his grand larger-than-life world which makes the cinema-going experience totally memorable and fully Paisa vasool," she stated. Ranveer is currently in London shooting for '83, which traces India's historic victory at the 1983 cricket World Cup. While he essays legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, Deepika plays his wife Romi. This is Ranveer and Deepika's first film together after their wedding last year.
