Last week, Ranveer Singh’s Simmba makers welcomed Sara Ali Khan on board for the film and now, actor Sonu Sood has joined the team, reports after Madhavan’s exit owing to an injury, Sonu Sood was the latest addition to the ensemble.
The announcement about Sonu’s entry into the Simmba cast comes after R. Madhavan made it clear that he can’t be a part of the movie due to his shoulder injury. Sonu will join Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in the movie. Sonu told IANS: “I can’t reveal much about the character, but all I can say is that it is one of the most challenging roles that I will be playing.” He will be seen as an anti-hero.
“I think it’s exciting to have a role with multiple layers… and something which challenges you to work on it, always gives a high to an actor. This is something which will need me to work a lot and study a few things. Once the film comes out, people will come to know about it. And yes, it will put me to do some kind of homework,” Sonu added.
Madhavan’s tweet about Simmba read as, “Hey folks.. So, I am a huge crazy fan of Rohit Shetty and his films. As is my son. It breaks both our hearts that I’m not able to be a part of this film because of my injury. I’m well on my way to recovery but this is a huge opportunity and excitement lost.”
Simmba is directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Karan Johar. It will release on December 28.
