If there is a character that comes close to Singh as a person, it has to be Sangram Bhalerao aka Simmba. In the role of a cop who cannot stand wrong done to his near one, Simmba was quite the charmer. Through the film, Singh also entered Rohit Shetty's cop franchise. Ajay Devgn as Singham was the original cop. Audiences are also gearing up to watch Akshay Kumar in the role of Sooryavanshi soon. The film, also starring Sara Ali Khan and Siddharth Jadhav, can be viewed on Zee5.
