Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh and filmmaker Rohit Shetty are set to collaborate for the third time with Cirkus.
The makers said it is Shetty’s adaptation on William Shakespeare’s classic play The Comedy of Errors.
Cirkus will go on floors next month and will be shot in Mumbai, Ooty and Goa. It is set to release in 2021.
Produced and directed by Rohit, the movie will be presented by Bhushan Kumar and Reliance Entertainment.
It will also star Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Sharma, Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Siddhartha Jadhav, Vrajesh Hirjee, Vijay Patkar, Sulbha Arya, Mukesh Tiwari, Anil Charanjeett, Ashwini Kalsekar and Murli Sharma.
Shetty and Singh have previously collaborated on the blockbuster film Simmba and the upcoming directorial Sooryavanshi, which has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Interestingly, Ranveer’s two major films were delayed due to coronavirus pandemic-induced lockdown and shutting down of movie theatres.
With the opening up of film theatres in the country, his sports drama titled 83, directed by Kabir Khan, which chronicles the historical victory of the Indian team in 1983 cricket world cup, has secured a release date near Christmas this year.
In the pipeline, Ranveer also has a social comedy, Jayeshbhai Jordaar which is scheduled to come out.
Directed by newcomer Divyang Thakkar, it stars Ranveer in the title role of a Gujarati man who believes in equal rights between males and females in the society.
It also stars Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah in pivotal roles.
