Ranveer-Rohit will be back with 'Simmba'
Given the success of Simmba, it is reported that Rohit will be collaborating with Ranveer for a sequel of the movie. The reports claimed that Simmba 2 will also feature Ajay Devgn but not in a cameo role. "Rohit has not designed Simmba as a one-off occurrence. In Simmba 2, Ranveer and Devgn will be fighting corrupt elements as a team," a source stated.
Separately, Rohit talks about Ranveer-Ajay's chemistry
Interestingly, Ajay Devgn's Singham style cameo was among the best elements of Simmba which made the audience go crazy. While we couldn't stop gushing over their chemistry in Simmba, Rohit revealed that the credit for this camaraderie goes to the Singham star. "Ajay made Ranveer comfortable. Ranveer has respect for him because he's a senior and he comes with an aura," Rohit told Pinkvilla.

Recently, he stated that he's glad that he played Bhalerao Sangram as it added a new dimension to his repertoire. "I have always wanted to entertain audiences and offer something new to them with every film," he added.
