Simmba (lit. Lion) is a 2018 Indian Hindi-language action film directed by Rohit Shetty and written by Yunus Sajawal and Sajid-Farhad. A spin-off of the Singham franchise, the film was produced by Shetty under his banner Rohit Shetty Picturez and Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta via Dharma Productions. Reliance Entertainment also co-produced and distributed the film. It stars Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood, with Ajay Devgn reprising his role of Bajirao Singham. The film follows Sangram "Simmba" Bhalerao, a corrupt police officer hailing from the same town as Singham, who is forced to lead a more righteous path after tragedy strikes those near him.
Some scenes from Simmba were inspired by those from the Telugu-language film Temper (2015). It has an estimated production budget of ₹80 crore (US$11 million). Principal photography began in June 2018 with most scenes filmed in Goa and Kolhapur and the remaining filmed at Hyderabad and Mehboob Studios in Mumbai. Shooting was wrapped up by early December in the same year. The film's soundtrack was composed by Tanishk Bagchi, Lijo George - DJ Chetas and S. Thaman, with lyrics written by Shabbir Ahmed, Rashmi Virag, Kumaar and Kunaal Verma.
Simmba was released in countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council on 27 December 2018. The film was released in India and other international territories on the following day; it was distributed worldwide by Reliance Entertainment. Earning "mixed to positive" reviews from critics, it became Singh's highest-opening film as of 2018; it earned ₹20.72 crore nett in India on its first day, and went on to gross over ₹100 crore worldwide in its first weekend.
