Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is considered among the most successful directors in Bollywood. In the recent past, his films have hit the bull’s eye at the box office. He is all set to unleash the Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan-starrer, Simmba this week, which, in his own words, is a ‘Rohit Shetty film’, but also deals with a serious issue. In a freewheeling chat with BT, the director spoke about why he chose Ranveer among the newer crop of actors to play the lead in his film, and why he believes that spontaneity doesn’t always work on the set.
