Rohit Shetty’s directorial, Cirkus, which features Ranveer Singh and Varun Sharma in a double role with Pooja Hegde and Jacqueline Fernandez as the female lead. The film is based on The Comedy of Errors, which inspired the Gulzar cult comedy, Angoor and is set in the 1960s’.
Deepika Joins Cirkus
The shooting of the film is going on in full swing in Mumbai and the makers are expected to wrap up by next month. And now, Bollywood Hungama has exclusively heard that Deepika Padukone has joined the Cirkus gang.
“Cirkus has just got bigger with the presence of Deepika Padukone. She has a special dance number in the film alongside some conversational scenes. Her sequences are sure to bring the house down with laughter,” a source told Bollywood Hungama.
This would be Ranveer and Deepika’s second collaboration after their 2019 wedding, the first being ‘83. Interestingly, it’s a cameo in both films for Deepika.
Fun On The Sets Of Cirkus
Last Friday, Ranveer Singh shared a video on Instagram as multiple vintage cars were lined up. The filmmaker was seen driving a mini car on the sets of the film as Ranveer was heard laughing. He says “most serious cast stunt director in the country” as Rohit drives the car. He captioned the post, “Takes his job very seriously @itsrohitshetty.”
Ranveer Singh will be starring in a double role as the story is about a pair of identical twins who are separated at birth. Both of his characters will have attendants played by Varun Sharma. The four of them will eventually cross paths leading to a classic case of mistaken identity and confusion. The film is Rohit Shetty’s take on the classic play, The Comedy of Errors.
After the massive success of Simmba and appearing in Sooryavanshi, Cirkus will mark the third outing of Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh. The film features an eclectic star cast which includes Siddhartha Jadhav, Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, VrajeshHirjee, Vijay Patkar, Sulbha Arya, Mukesh Tiwari, Anil Charanjeett, Ashwini Kalsekar, and Murli Sharma.
