Simmba, the spin-off of Rohit Shetty’s popular Singham series starring Ajay Devgn as a tough cop, is garnering rave reviews and fan appreciation since it hit the screens. While Ranveer Singh is the energy ball and Rohit is the action king, it made the movie a big masala adventure to watch.
While Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba, has made more than Rs 124 crore in five days of release, there’s another feather added to director Rohit Shetty’s cap. With Simmba, Rohit Shetty becomes the first director in the history of Bollywood cinema to deliver eight back-to-back films to have made more than Rs 100 crore at the domestic box office.
Rohit Shetty’s blockbuster hits include Golmaal 3, Singham, Bol Bachchan, Chennai Express, Singham Returns, Dilwale, Golmaal Again and Simmba.
Film trade analyst also took to his Twitter handle to write, “He's the Hit Machine... A name that's synonymous with Hits... Ro-Hit Shetty's latest endeavour #Simmba is not only winning hearts, but also ruling the BO.”
Ranveer Singh’s flamboyant persona, his marriage with fellow actor Deepika Padukone and back-to-back hits in Padmaavat and Simmba kept him in the headlines throughout last year and Ranveer can’t hide his excitement over his ‘bro’ Rohit Shetty’s achievement.
Ranveer shared a power packed post on his Insta handle declaring, “All hail the blockbuster king! Ro-bro be slamming century after century.”
2018 has proven to be a ladder in Ranveer Singh’s career. Two biggest grossing movies of the year Padmaavat and Simmba have not only earned critical accolade for the actor but also won him more fans with his stellar performance in both films.
Simmba is Ranveer’s first venture with Rohit Shetty, while his newlywed wife Deepika was earlier seen in the director’s Chennai Express, co-starring Shah Rukh Khan.
