Recently it was announced that Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty have collaborated for a comedy and that the film is a cult comedy with Ranveer playing a double role.
Now, Bollywood Hungama has reported that their upcoming film ‘Cirkus’ is set in the era of 1960’s, which was devoid of mobile phones and other gadgets.
A source says “Since the film is a comedy of error that results from mistaken identity due to the double role of two characters in the film, Rohit and his team decided to set the film in an era that was devoid of mobile phones and all other modern gadgets. After contemplating on the time frame, they finally zeroed in on 1967 as the era to be recreated in Cirkus.”
“Though a comedy, Rohit is very particular about the costumes, look and attire of all his characters in the film as the feel and appearances lends to a lot of humor. It’s an out and out comedy, and will drive people crazy Rohit Shetty style but from the vintage era of Hindi cinema. Get prepared to see a new side of Ranveer Singh in a never seen before avatar,” the source further added.
The film also stars Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Varun Sharma in key roles.
The movie is currently being shot in Mumbai and the team will soon be off to Goa and Ooty for upcoming schedules. The movie is expected to release in the winter of 2021.
