Simmba is an upcoming 2018 Indian Hindi-language action film directed by Rohit Shettyand written by Yunus Sajawal and Sajid-Farhad. An adaptation of the Telugu-language film Temper (2015) and a spin-off from the Singham franchise, the film was produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions. It stars Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood, with Ajay Devgnreprising his role of Bajirao Singham. The film follows Sangram "Simmba" Bhalerao, a corrupt police officer hailing from the same town as Singham, who is forced to transform himself and choose a more righteous path after tragedy strikes those near him.Sangram "Simmba" Bhalerao (Ranveer Singh) is an antiheroic orphan-turned-cop from Shivgadh, the same town where Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) was raised. Contrary to Bajirao's integrity, Simmba enjoys and takes full advantage of the lifestyle of a corrupt cop. However, when Simmba's loved ones are abused, he finds himself transformed and forced to choose a more righteous path.Principal photography for Simmba began in June, 2018. It was mainly filmed in Goa and Kolhapurm, with some filming in Hyderabad and extra sequences filmed at Mehboob Studios in Mumbai.
On 29 June, 2018, the crew filmed the song, "Simmba Aala Re Aala Simmba Aala", at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. On Instagram, Singh noted the large scale of the production and said that it was the biggest song of his career.
Legal issues surrounding the production of Khan's debut-film Kedarnath interfered with the production of Simmba. Khan was scheduled to shoot for both films around the same time. A lawsuit shut down the production of Kedarnath and Khan allotted the time to work on Simmba. Kedarnath'sdirector, Abhishek Kapoor, sued Khan because his film would be delayed and it would no longer mark the debut of Khan. The two settled out of court when Khan agreed to split her time between both films.
In October 2018, lead actors Singh and Khan left for Switzerland to film a song sequence for the film. By late October, the crew had returned to Mumbai to film a second song, "Aankh Marey"—a remake of a 90s classic song.
Because Singh was to be married in November 2018, Shetty shot most of the major sequences before the wedding date. Only the final sequence was left to be filmed after the wedding. A double for Singh was used to complete patch work of a dhaba fight scene in Goa; various camera angles were used so that the double would resemble Singh.
The film wrapped shooting in early December 2018.
