Simba has been in news in recent times for Sara Ali Khan who is now confirmed as the leading lady of the movie. However, there is one more actor who has joined the cast and crew of Simba. He is none other than Sonu Sood who will be seen as the villain of Simba.
The makers of the movie have released an official statement stating that Sonu Sood will be the villain of this movie. Initially, Tamil actor Madhavan was selected for this role, but due to a shoulder injury, he had to opt out of the project with Sonu stepping in.
Speaking about his role in this movie, Sonu has mentioned that this role will be quite a challenge for him, as this role is going to be entirely different from all the previous villainous roles that he has played. This will be the first time that Sonu will team up with Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh. A visibly excited Sonu has spoken about his collaboration with Karan Johar, the producer and director Rohit Shetty.
Simba is the Hindi remake of the Tamil film Temper and Ranveer will be seen in the role of a police officer. Although this film is a remake, only a portion of the Telegu movie will be seen in the Hindi remake, the rest of it as the makers say will be original.
The shooting of the movie will start from May and the movie is slated for a December release.
