For the uninitiated, Simmba is an official remake of the Telugu blockbuster, Temper that came out in 2015. Starring Jr NTR and Kajal Aggarwal, the movie was directed by Puri Jagganath. The Hindi remake is directed by Rohit Shetty, who is also producing the film along with Karan Johar. Ranveer Singh is playing the main lead here, while Sara Ali Khan has been cast as the female lead. Rohit Shetty has set Simmba in the same universe as Singham, and therefore Ajay Devgn is also making a cameo in the movie, reprising his character of Bajirao Singham.

The trailer has been launched on December 3, and had been a talking point for the whole day. The highlights of the discussion had been Ranveer playing a cop for the first time, the Singham vibes and of course, Ajay Devgn's cameo. Now what we think is a ploy to cash in on Simmba's popularity, Goldmines Telefilms, a Youtube channel, who regularly uploads Hindu dubbed versions of South movies, have uploaded Temper's version too, but with a twist.

After having uploaded the new version on the same day as when the trailer of Simmba came out, they even labelled Temper's Hindi version as - "Temper Hindi Dubbed Full Movie | Ranveer Singh’s Simmba is a Remake of Jr NTR’s 'Temper'". Check it below -
Even the description of the movie is relying too much on Simmba, while also letting out the plot of the film - "Simmba is an upcoming Indian film directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. It stars Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood in its lead roles. The film is a Hindi remake of 2015 Telugu film Temper."
We wonder what Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar have to say about this!
Simmba also stars Siddhartha Jadhav and Sonu Sood. The movie is all set to release on December 28.
