Filmmaker Rohit Shetty has booked almost the entire Mehboob Studios in Bandra to shoot for Ranveer Singh‘s Cirkus. According to a report by MidDay, he has taken three floors where the sets are being constructed. The film which sees the Simmba actor in a double role will be initially shot at the Yash Raj Studios. The unit will then march on to the Mehboob Studios for a longer stint. Rohit will also reportedly conduct a schedule at Ramoji Rao Studios in Hyderabad.
Talking about Ranveer Singh’s character in the film, the publication quoted a source as saying — “Ranveer will be seen in a double role for the first time as he plays a pair of identical twins who were separated from each other. Each twin also has an identical attendant, essayed by Varun Sharma. The laugh riot will trace how the foursome cross paths, leading to a case of mistaken identity and confusion. While Rohit has stayed true to the outline of the source material, he has introduced new plot twists and characters. The film will be Rohit’s take on The Comedy of Errors and have his signature brand of humour.”
Pooja Hegde is all set to play the female lead in the film.
Cirkus also stars, Jacqueline Fernandez Mukesh Tiwari, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, and Vrajesh Hirjee, among others.
