R Madhavan was to play the villain in Ranveer Singh’s upcoming cop drama ‘Simmba’. However, due to injury, the actor had to drop out of the project. The makers of ‘Simmba’ have now finalized Sonu Sood, who has been finalized to play the negative part. Directed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Simmba’ features Ranveer as Sangram Bhalerao, a fun cop. Interestingly, Abhishek Bachchan was the first choice of the makers for the grey-shade role after which it was offered to R Madhavan. Ranveer and Sonu will shoot for several action-packed sequences. ‘Simmba’ is scheduled to release on December 28 and may clash at the box office with Salman Khan’s cop film ‘Dabangg 3’.
