A few days ago, there were reports that Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the lead role in the remake of Angoor which will be helmed by Rohit Shetty. And now, according to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Jacqueline Fernandez and Pooja Hegde will be seen opposite Ranveer in the film.

A source told the entertainment portal, “It’s a double dhamaka (double role) of Ranveer, and both the actresses will be paired alongside the actor. Their track plays an important thread in building the confusion, which eventually brings the house down with laughter. It will be a first-time collaboration for the two ladies with Ranveer. It’s an outstanding well-written role for both the girls.”

The source further stated, “After back to back cop films in Simmba and Sooryavanshi, Rohit was on the lookout to step out of the serious zone and do a comedy. He had this idea of making something on the lines of Angoor for a while now and took time in the lockdown to develop the screenplay. The script demanded an actor with energetic screen presence like Ranveer Singh, and it was an instant yes from the actor for the film.”

Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh had earlier teamed up for Simmba which was a blockbuster at the box office. Currently, Shetty is awaiting the release of his directorial Sooryavanshi which stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.

Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh will next be seen on the big screen in 83 which is slated to release on Christmas this year.
