‘Simmba’ produced by Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar, has highlighted the lead actor Ranveer Singh through their poster.
Karan’s Dharma Productions recently announced ‘Kedarnath’ actress Sara Ali Khan as the lead actress in the film.
Coming on board, it now appears that Sara’s mother Amrita Singh has pressurized the makers to make her role meatier in the film so that she and Ranveer share equal screen space.
A source confirmed to Mid-Day saying, "The writers are reworking the parts of both, the leading man and his love interest. Since this is Sara Ali Khan's debut film, Amrita was clear that she shouldn't be overshadowed by Ranveer."
The source adds, "The movie has a message about women's safety, with an emphasis on Sara's character. While the leading lady in the Telugu original served only as the love interest, her character will be more involved in the story."
