EXCLUSIVE: Ranveer Singh on Cirkus- "It's an ensemble comedy in which I play a double role"
Ranveer Singh is currently basking in the glory of the accolades he has been receiving for his performance in the film 83. He essayed the role of former Indian cricket team captain Kapil Dev in a film about the 1983 cricket world cup. For his forthcoming films, the actor will be seen in a completely different avatar. He will soon be seen in Rohit Shetty's out-and-out comedy Cirkus in a double role. This is Ranveer's second film with Rohit after the 2018 film Simmba.
Ina recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Ranveer Singh spoke but how Cirkus is a completely new genre for him and promises that it will make the audiences laugh. "Cirkus is another new genre for me. I am still exploring my repertoire as a performer 10 years down the line doing new things. This is my foray into out-and-out comedy something that you see in a film like Golmaal and the film has actors like Johny Lever, Varun Sharma, and Siddharth Jadhav. It's an ensemble comedy in which I play a double role. There's nobody better than the man who makes these comedies and has been making and entertaining the audience for so many years. It's my first foray into the genre with Rohit Shetty," the actor said.
"Cirkus is that out-and-out comedy which I am so happy to present at a time like this. We are all going through such a tough time that the film promises the audience that they can forget all their worries; for 2 hours we will make you laugh and you can laugh along with us. There's complete madness and craziness in the movie. The audience will go back feeling light-hearted. As a performer, I think I am duty-bound to do that. I feel like there is great agony in existence in the world we live in today. Everybody is fighting their own battles. Life has been difficult in the past 2 years and it's gotten even tougher. We are on this journey of life together and it is my job as an entertainer to tell you a story or do a joke. I'll just ease the burden of this journey of this world we are existing in," he added.
Cirkus also stars Pooja Hegde and Jacqueline Fernandez in pivotal roles. The film will be released in theatres on July 15, 2022.
