Rohit Shetty’s Simmba starring Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan has already crossed the 100 crore mark on the fifth day since its release. The film has been loved by the audience and Ranveer Singh has garnered praise from the critics for his performance in the film. Simmba addresses the issue of sexual harassment and how the officials can be the driving force in leading significant changes in the society. Ranveer Singh plays the role of a cop, Sangram Bhalerao in the film.

Sara Ali Khan debuted in the industry with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath and her second film, Simmba released three weeks after her debut film. Sara had revealed during promotional interviews that she messaged Rohit Shetty thrice requesting him to cast her in the film. Rohit Shetty, Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh were the guests on The Kapil Sharma show’s first episode. During the interaction on the show, Rohit Shetty revealed how Sara Ali Khan bagged the film, Simmba.

Rohit said in jest, “She came and begged me for a role in Simmba. Hearing this, I started crying. Imagine, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter begging me for a role." He added, "Saif never once asked me to take Sara for Simmba.”

Saif Ali Khan had earlier said that he was quite involved with her getting on board with Karan Johar, who has produced Simmba.

Sara said on the show, “This year, Santa came twice for me in the form of Kedarnath and Simmba”

Anonymous : It doesn’t hurt much since Sara can act. She is go getter and honest abt it. I respect that rather than denying it like Alia and not acknowledging nepotism.

Anonymous : Yeah, Saif went to Karan, and Karan went to you. Saif has already admitted outwardly that he got involved with Sara's launch, she was probably upset about Kedarnath at the time, it was stuck in production hell, he was pulling strings for her. As nice as Sara and the Khan family are, they are nepo family all the same.

Anonymous : You chose her because she is a star-kid. She already has interest from the audience because of that. That is only reason. Thankfully she can act but still, stop denying it. This is what Kangana meant.
