Talk about some exciting news! Even before wrapping up her debut film Kedarnath co-starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Sara Ali Khan has already managed to bag her second big project with Ranveer Singh’s Simmba. Yes, Karan Johar’s Dharma production just made the big announcement on Instagram saying, “All your speculations end here. Presenting you the leading lady of Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh. Roaring to cinemas near you on 28th December, 2018.”
Turns out Karan Johar, who is co-producing Simmba along with Rohit Shetty, was more keen on having Sara on board considering he couldn’t collaborate with her for Student Of The Year 2. If you remember, Sara was to initially make her debut with SOTY 2, but given that it was a two-heroine project, Sara took a step back and went on to sign Kedarnath instead. However, now with Simmba falling in place, we can already see Sara’s first ever blockbuster in the making.
That way Simmba looks like one grand entertainer in the offering. It has Ranveer who is a powerhouse of talent, Rohit Shetty who is known for rolling out kickass masala films, and Karan Johar who is famous for promoting all his films on a larger scale. So there’s no way Sara should reconsider her thoughts on signing this film. In fact, this will probably be the best launch pad any star kid could ever dream of, even better than what she’s doing with Kedarnath.
In case you are wondering how will Sara and Ranveer look as a couple together, here is this rare picture of the two when they met during an awards show recently:
From what we hear, Simmba is expected to go on floors by May 2018 while it’s aiming for a December 28, 2018 release. But with Salman Khan’s Dabbang 3 also being scheduled to release on the same day, you never know, Simmba might just have to change its release date. Let’s wait for an official announcement soon.
