Ranveer Singh’s Simmba Director Rohit Shetty Books an Entire Aircraft for His Crew’s Diwali Celebrations

Rohit Shetty has done something for his crew that no Bollywood filmmaker might have done so far. The director was filming Ranveer Singh’s last shot in Goa and his entire team was with him there. Apparently, Rohit did not want his team to miss out Diwali celebrations with their family members and so the filmmaker did the sweetest thing for his gang. Rohit has booked an entire aircraft that will shuttle his Simmba team from Goa to Mumbai today on November 7. And because parts of the film’s shoot is still pending, the director will be flowing them back from Mumbai to Goa on November 8. Now if this is not a thoughtful magnanimous gesture, then what is really?

Rohit is known to be extremely protective of his crew. In fact, no matter how big a superstar he’s directing, the filmmaker ensures the comfort of his core team members. Actors often feel that the director is more caring about his crew than the stars. And it’s no surprise then that the director continues to be a favourite amongst all his teammates. Simmba crew is expected to wrap the shoot in two days, by November 10. This will be the first time that Rohit and Ranveer are collaborating for a movie. While Simmba does have Ajay Devgn’s Singham vibes, with Ranveer on board we bet that the duo will spin magic and something new together. Rohit and Ranveer are both going gaga about each other on social media. We have often seen Ranveer sport T-shirt that proclaims his love for the filmmaker.

#Repost @itsrohitshetty ・・・ 6th June 2018, Exactly 5 Months ago today, the journey of Simmba began and as this adventourous journey ends for our Simmba a.k.a. Sangram Bhalerao, I am filled with mixed emotions. Simmba being our first film together, was full of fun, laughters and unending memories. It's truly been wonderful knowing him as a person and as an actor who is honest hardworking and so passionate about his craft. I can vouch today that no-one else could have been a better Simmba than Ranveer Singh making Simmba (as my team says) My best film so far. When we started the film he was a young talented star for me But today as he performs his last shot for the film I know I've earned a Kid brother for life who is now set to embark upon a new beautiful journey with someone equally as charming and wonderful as him. I am proud to showoff today that my Simmba is marrying my Meenamma!!! I Wish them all the luck for a blissfully beautiful future together. @ranveersingh @deepikapadukone #simmba

Rohit had in fact made Ranveer’s birthday very special on Simmba sets. And his latest Instagram post will leave anybody with a warm fussy feeling. The Golmaal director wished his younger brother Ranveer and Deepika all the very best for their wedding and declared that he has found a younger brother in the Padmaavat actor. Ranveer and Rohit had earlier collaborated for an advertisement. There was also buzz about the director planning Ram Lakhan remake with Ranveer. However, Rohit admitted that it’s tough to get competing heroes to share screen space these days and rubbished reports of working on the film.

Reports also revealed that Shetty had approached Abhishek Bachchan to play the villain in Simmba, however Bachchan Jr who’s a close friend of Rohit turned him down. Abhishek we hear felt that the audience wasn’t prepared to see him as a negative hero and cited that the earlier movies where he played a grey character failed to perform at the box office. Buzz was that Rohit was miffed with Abhishek and roped in Sonu Sood for the part. View Pics: Ranveer Singh’s Pre-Wedding Shenanigans Begin! Actor Is Dancing With Joy at His Haldi Ceremony
