Looks like finding the right villain is more difficult for filmmakers nowadays than locking the lead pair. Filmmakers Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty, who are all set to remake the superhit Telugu film Temper in Hindi as Simmba, have had a tough time finalizing the main villain for the movie. After Abhishek Bachchan rejected the role of a baddie in Simmba, the same role went to R Madhavan. However, things didn't work out with him either due to his bad health. But now the good news is that Sonu Sood has come onboard to play the antagonist in Simmba.

Sonu has played a baddie in many Hindi and South Indian films, the most prominent one being Salman Khan’s Dabangg where he played Chedi Singh with style. The actor is quite happy about being part of Simmba and we hear that he gave his consent immediately after hearing the script.

Produced by Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty, Simmba stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles. The film is being directed by Rohit Shetty and will release on 27th December 2018.
