Ranveer Singh after Simmba has again teamed up with Rohit Shetty for Cirkus, a screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. The film will be a commercial entertainer which is expected to go on the floors next month at Mumbai Mehboob Studios.
Ranveer Singh will be seen playing a double role for the first time on-screen. Not just this, actor Varun Sharma, who was seen in Shetty’s Dilwale, also has a double role as the aide of Ranveer’s characters.
As per a news report by Mid-Day, the film will be depicting the story of identical twins who were separated from each other. “Each twin also has an identical attendance essayed by Varun. The laugh riot will trace how the foursome cross paths, leading to a case of mistaken identity and confusion. While Rohit has stayed true to the outline of the source material he has introduced new plot twists and characters. The film will be Rohit’s take on The Comedy of Errors and have his signature brand of humour,” Mid-Day quoted a source close to the production.
The film will also feature Jacqueline Fernandez and Pooja Hegde as female leads opposite the two characters of Ranveer. The film will be released in winter 2021. Cirkus is being presented by Reliance Entertainment and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.
