Rohit Shetty is taking us to a mad world with his upcoming comedy Cirkus. Set in the 1960s, this off beat tale stars Ranveer Singh in his first double role and what a role it is..but more on that in a minute. Cirkus also features an eclectic ensemble cast including Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Sharma, Johnny Lever, Siddhartha Jadhav, Sanjay Mishra, Tiku Talsania, Vrajesh Hirjee, Ashwini Kalsekar amongst others. The film also has special appearances by Deepika Padukone and Ajay Devgn.
This is Shetty’s take, as only he can, on Shakespeare’s classic The Comedy of Errors. However, the director says this is totally different in form and feeling, “Our film is a different take. It is a happy, cool and breezy film, much on the lines of Golmaal and All The Best.”
The trailer recently dropped and is already a hit with fans! In fact, it has garnered over 50 million views on YouTube alone!

Talking about being a part of the comedy, Ranveer said, “Rohit sir always fulfils my dream, he was the first one to present me as a cop and now he made me do comedy. To make the audience laugh, we have made this film so that they forget all their worries.”
Adding this role and working with legends of Hindi cinema, is a dream come true. “I have been waiting for 15 years to be part of a film like this and it is a dream come true to work with genius talents like Sanjay Mishra, Johnny Lever and all our senior actors.”
