Simmba will be Ranveer Singh’s first release post his wedding with Deepika Padukone. And before the actor begins its mega promotions, the makers of this Rohit Shetty directorial launched its trailer, much to the happiness of Ranveer’s fans.

The film, which is a remake of 2015 Telugu film Temper, also stars Sara Ali Khan, Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana. It is set to arrive on December 28, reports the

Simmba is an action drama where Ranveer plays the character of a corrupt powerful cop named Sangram Bhalerao, who mends his ways after falling in love with a simple girl.

The trailer begins with Ajay Devgn in his Singham avatar introducing the audience to the new cop on the block – Simmba, played by Ranveer Singh. But unlike Singham, Simmba has no qualms about being corrupt and making money by working for the local dons.

And while he thinks his life is about flexing muscles on those who try to challenge him, and romancing Sara, things take a turn when his so-called-sister dies after getting raped.

A shattered Simmba pledges to take down the rapists and pronounce them a punishment in his own court of law.

While Ranveer’s Marathi accent is spot on, his beefed-up physique and a moustache is something his fans will get to see after a long time.

Simmba’s transition from a bad cop to one fighting for justice is the crux of this power-packed film. For those who might miss it, there is even a reference to Salman Khan’s Robinhood from Dabangg. The trailer ends with Ajay Devgn shattering some glass windows and making an entry in his SUV again, as the Singham track plays in the background.
