MUMBAI: Bollywood presents snappy and feisty police officers who are ever willing to do whatever they can to bring peace and security into the lives of citizens.
The latest in the series is Ranveer Singh who released his first look from Simmba – a film to be directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Karan Johar.
Rohit Shetty is remembered to have evinced the interest in remaking famed cult action comedy Ram Lakhan of Anil Kapoor. Hence, Ranver Singh will appear in a role of Lakhan that suits him the most i.e. a never-do-gooder cop.

Rohit, who enjoying the success of his latest release, Golmaal Returns, had said earlier, “No, the Ram Lakhan remake is not happening. Two stars don’t want to work together, they just want to promote each other’s films. This young lot, they will tweet for each other, but they will not work with each other.”
Ranveer is anxiously waiting for the release of his controversial upcoming film with Deepika Padukone, Padmavati.
The actor is also working in Zoya Akhtar’s film Gully Boy that is based on Mumbai’s street rappers.
