Fans are sure to remember Ajay Devgn's Singham avatar on seeing Ranveer Singh's look as "Simmba". Clad in a cop's uniform, with a handlebar moustache, shades and a quirky expression, Ranveer looks every bit a policeman, but in his own unique style.

It is also reported that Simmba, which is the Hindi remake of the Telugu film Temper. We wanted to take four-five scenes from Temper but we thought it's better to buy the rights. This will be the first time people will see Ranveer performing so many action sequences. He has great energy and after working with him in a commercial, even I believe so.
