Karan Johar is co-producing Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba which is said to be a remake of the south film. The film is directed by Rohit Shetty and he will also be co-producing it. As the first poster revealed that Ranveer will be seen playing a cop in the film. It has been reported that Jhanvi Kapoor is likely to be paired with Ranveer in this film and now it is said that Jhanvi will have longer role compared to the female lead of the original film.
A source says, “Karan is launching Jhanvi under his production and has been looking after her too.So when he offered her role, she had doubts about length, as original film had limited scope for the female actor to perform. Karan has now decided to bring in some changes in the script and add some scenes for Jhanvi.”
