Simmba: Rohit Shetty reveals the reason for signing Sara Ali Khan opposite Ranveer Singh

Sara Ali Khan lately created a buzz after she was roped in for Rohit Shetty's upcoming directorial Simmba. The young actress will be paired opposite Ranveer Singh, who will be seen playing a cool cop in the movie.

Rohit has been quite elated to have Sara on board and can't stop gushing about the Pataudi princess.

During his recent interview with Mid-Day, Shetty revealed the reason for roping Sara for Simmba and said that she is made for masala movies.

"When I met Sara for the first time, I realised she is a hardcore commercial heroine. She is made for masala films," Rohit Shetty was quoted as saying.

He further asserted that Sara will be able to match Ranveer's craziness perfectly.

"Sara approached me saying she wanted to work with me. I thought she’d be perfect for Simmba. She’ll match Ranveer’s craziness because her character in the film is such," Rohit added.

It will be interesting to see if Sara will be able to meet Rohit's expectations.

Notably, Sara Ali Khan was supposed to make her big Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.

However, the movie landed in a trouble after a disagreement between the director and producers.

It is reported that Sara will now make her big debut with Simmba which is scheduled to release on December 28. The movie is being produced by Karan Johar.
