Eccentric actor Ranveer Singh reveals he always wanted to be a hero in a Rohit Shetty movie. He said, "Rohit is he king of the action-entertainment and the masala genre. I always wanted to be his hero and when I got this opportunity, I gave it my all. Both of us are entertainers at our core- we like entertaining the audiences to the hilt."

Singh delivered Shetty's blockbuster film `Simmba', in which he played a cop named Sangram Bhalerao. The actor said that the character has a special place in his heart. "Sangram Bhalerao will always stay extraordinarily close to my heart because I got to act in a film, in a genre which was my home territory. I'm thankful to Rohit Shetty for believing in me and making me part of his power packed cop universe."

Actor Sara Ali Khan, who played a pivotal role in the film was all praises for Rohit too. She said, "The way I define a masala Bollywoood film is a Rohit Sir film. I think it has every flavor depicted, and in a rather grand way, which makes watching a movie a fulfilling experience."

She added, 'There's drama, romance, good music, large sets, cars are flying. When you come with your friends and family for two hours you get fully transported into his grand larger-than-life world which makes the cinema-going experience totally memorable and fully paisa vasool."
