Simmba starring Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan has opened to a stupendous response at the Box office. The movie directed by Rohit Shetty is being welcomed with seethis and applauses at the multiplexes and single theatres with the weekend collections ranging around Rs 75 crores, which is a huge figure. Amongst other things, what really left everyone hooting was the action sequences between Ajay Devgn aka our very own Singham and Ranveer Singh aka Simmba. 

In a candid chat with Rohit Shetty, the director opened up about the atmosphere on sets when Ajay and Ranveer were together. "I think the credit goes to Ajay to break the ice as he made Ranveer very comfortable," Rohit started and added, "Obviously we all respect him, Ranveer has respect for him because he's a senior and he comes with an aura. Ajay comes into the film as Bajirao Singham and not as Ajay Devgn and definitely not for the sake of coming. So, obviously, the aura was there as Ajay was in his uniform and first time, Ranveer was shooting with him."

"We had some serious action and some serious scenes, performance oriented scenes between both of them but I think the credit goes to Ajay as he took over, he made the whole situation quite easy. After half an hour, the day we started shooting, Ranveer and Ajay were behaving as if they are pals, chit-chatting and all. Whole day, I could see them sitting in one corner and just discussing things and discussing cinema, performance, personal life, and experiences," he continued. Well, there is no qualm about Singham and Simmba making for a deadly pair onscreen and we would, in fact, love to see a movie based on the duo. Isn't it?

Simmba has emerged as one of the biggest openers in Singh's career.
