Ranveer Singh is associating once again with Rohit Shetty for his upcoming film Cirkus, a film that marks his first time doing an out-and-out comedy role along with playing a double role. While talking about playing two roles in one film for the first time, Ranveer Singh shared that he is grateful to Rohit Shetty for giving him an opportunity in Cirkus as he has always wanted to do a full-fledged comedy film.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Ranveer Singh said that he has accomplished milestone after milestone with Rohit Shetty’s films.
“I’m very grateful to Rohit Shetty for giving me these opportunities. Out-and-out comedy for the first time- something I have wanted to do for so many years, and I have been very vocal about it for at least 4 or 5 years before I got the opportunity. I just want to do a balls-out comedy- slapstick, situational, insult, humour, all rolled into one. So it was a dream come true for me. First time in and as larger-than-life action hero cop character and now first-time comedy and hopefully the first of many,” he said.
The actor further stated that it was slightly more challenging playing a double role because it's a comedy of errors and it's about confusion so people have to confuse the two together. "So you have to tread a very fine balance. But ultimately it's the director's medium. Nobody makes these movies better than him,” he said.
Cirkus also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde, Siddhartha Jadhav, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Vrajesh Hirjee, Vijay Patkar, Sulbha Arya, Mukesh Tiwari, Anil Charanjeett, Ashwini Kalsekar, and Murli Sharma. It is scheduled for worldwide theatrical release on 23 December 2022, coinciding with Christmas Eve.
