Ranveer Singh is on a roll this year. After delivering an outstanding performance in Padmaavat, the actor is currently shooting for Simmba in Hyderabad.
The movie, which is being helmed by Rohit Shetty also stars Sara Ali Khan opposite Ranveer and will see the actor as the young, tough cop. Simmba is slated to release on December 28, 2018.
Ranveer has already wrapped shooting for Gully Boy, which is directed by Zoya Akhtar and marks the first onscreen collaboration between Ranveer and Alia Bhatt. Gully Boy will see Ranveer play the role of a street rapper and is slated to release on February 14, 2019.
ngh will soon commence shooting for ’83 which chronicles the prestigious 1983 cricket World Cup victory for India. Ranveer will be playing the role of Kapil Dev in this Kabir Khan directorial. ’83 is slated to release on August 30, 2019.
Besides these three promising movies, Ranveer may also be seen in a musical drama which is a love story, courtesy of his Bollywood debut movie, Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies vs Ricky Bahl director Maneesh Sharma, according to media reports.
A source revealed to the media, “This is Ranveer and Maneesh’s third film together, after Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. It’s a love story, but also a musical drama. The music will play a pivotal part in the narrative as it does in Hollywood musicals such as La La Land.”
The movie is expected to go on floors in June 2019.
Meanwhile, there have been reports suggesting that the couple will tie the knot either in Italy or in Switzerland. This will apparently be a private ceremony with the attendance of close friends and family. Ranveer and Deepika will be hosting two receptions- in Mumbai for the film fraternity and in Bengaluru for Deepika’s extended family.
Now, as per reports from a leading daily, Ranveer is all set to go on a trip with his friends in July. He will be leaving on the 27th or the 28th of July for a bachelors’ trip.
“They’ve been asked to keep themselves available at the end of July and the beginning of August. At the moment, it’s expected to be a week-long sojourn for Ranveer and his bunch of boys,” Ranveer’s friend told the daily.
His spokesperson, however, said, “We have been getting such queries, but we have no information about this trip.”
