Just two days back, actor R Madhavan had tweeted and revealed that he had to opt out of Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’ due to an injury. He had written, “Hey folks .. So I am a huge crazy fan of Rohit Shetty and his films. As is my son. It breaks both our hearts that I’m not able to be a part of this film because of my injury. I’m well on my way to recovery but this is a huge opportunity and excitement lost.’

Well, that surely gave us some sorrow because it would have been amazing to see the versatile actor play a negative role opposite the funny cop act of Ranveer Singh.

Now, actor Sonu Sood has stepped in as the negative lead in the Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan-starrer ‘Simmba’. The actor is not new to playing antagonists as he has essayed negative characters in movies like ‘Dabangg’, ‘R… Rajkumar’ to name a few. Reports in Mirror revealed that he is indeed on board the project. (Also Read: Exclusive: Sara’s debut movie to be ‘Simmba’)
