Furious at Ranveer Singh's casting as Simmba, Lion community attacks Rohit Shetty's house

08, Dec 2018 By Guest Patrakar

Mumbai: Simba is a fictional character who appears in Disney’s The Lion King franchise. Introduced in Walt Disney Animation’s 32nd animated feature film The Lion King (1994), the character subsequently appears in its sequels The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride (1998) and The Lion King 1½ (2004).


Simmba is also a Rohit Shetty movie which stars Ranveer Singh, and after the trailer was launched two days back, the Lion community does not seem to happy with the casting.

There was news that the Lion community has attacked Rohit Shetty’s house and have demanded that a new actor is taken to play Simmba instead of Ranveer. The lion community which follows Instagram pretty closely also said that Ranveer’s fashion sense will make a mockery of Simmba’s character, which was made popular by the innocence and honesty of the character.

Police had to do a meeting with the senior members of the Lion community and finally, they agreed upon the fact that Rohit Shetty will try to hire another actor when he makes Simmba 2.

Given Rohit Shetty’s record, it won’t be a surprise if he comes up with Simmba 2 in not more than 6 months down the line.
