MUMBAI: If euphoria had a face, it would look like Ranveer Singh. The vivacious actor brims with energy 24x7! When that sort of energy combines with Rohit Shetty’s quirky directorial sense, it ought to result in a high-octane action blockbuster! This Saturday, 31st August at 8 pm, get ready to dance to the tunes of the newest cop in the B-town – ‘Simmba’ with &pictures – Naye India Ka Blockbuster Movie Channel’s newest property ‘Saturday Premiere Nights’. The box office hit movie Simmba traces the journey of a fun yet corrupt police officer, whose motto in life is to do beyimaani with full imaandaari and how his outlook takes a 360-degree turn after an unfortunate incident. Director Rohit Shetty helmed action flick features Ranveer Singh as Simmba, Sara Ali Khan as Shagun, Sonu Sood as the main antagonist Durva and Ajay Devgn in a special cameo. Be it action, comedy, romance or striking performances by the actors, Simmba has it all making it a complete entertainment package for the viewers.

Defining Simmba as a masala movie, Sara Ali Khan said, "The way I define a masala Bollywood film is a Rohit sir film. I think it has every emotion, every flavor 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." 

Essaying the titular role Simmba, Ranveer Singh said, “Rohit Shetty is the king of the action-entertainment, masala genre. I always wanted to be a Rohit Shetty 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. My character in Simmba, 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.” 

Speaking about his experience on making Simmba, Director Rohit Shetty said, "Making such movies makes me feel proud especially when the entire police force watches the film. After watching Singham Returns, Rakesh Maria told me, ‘I am proud to be the commissioner of the city after watching your film. The law is more important than we think. If there is no red signal on the road, we all become like animals! The day a police station shuts down, it will be chaos!" 

Simmba is an orphan who hails from the town of Shivgadh where the famous and respected cop Singham was born and bred. While looking upto Singham has an inspiration, Simmba grew up to become a police office but with principles poles apart from the latter. Being an uncouth cop, he blatantly engages in pursuits of taking bribes from a dangerous gang lord Durva Ranade (Sonu Sood), during which he develops a bhai-hood with him. After being transferred to the Miramar police station, he comes across Shagun (Sara Ali Khan) and love blossoms between them leading to a behaviour change in Simmba. Whilst in the new city, he also develops a special bond with Aakruti (Vaidehi Parashurami), a medical student as she teaches underprivileged children and reminds him of his teacher. But, a certain twist in the story transforms him completely and forces him to choose the righteous path.
