Filmmaker Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus is out in theatres. The film, which stars Ranveer Singh in a double role, has opened to mixed reviews.

Rohit Shetty recently revealed that Ranveer Singh agreed to do Cirkus within 3 seconds.
EXCLUSIVE: Cirkus director Rohit Shetty reveals Ajay Devgn never hears the script; recalls Singham narration: ‘We completed the narration at 2 in the morning for a 7 am shoot’
He told Bollywood Hungama, “It took me like a second. I remember it was in the middle of the afternoon, middle of the lockdown, I got a call while I was on the treadmill. I answered the phone and he asked, 'Achha sun ek picture, karega kya'. And my response was, 'Haan boss karenge'. It took me 3 seconds.”
Rohit Shetty has now revealed that just like Ranveer, even Ajay Devgn, who has been a longtime collaborator of Shetty, doesn’t read scripts anymore as he has trust in Shetty’s vision. Recalling their project Singham and how fast Devgn agreed for the role, he said, “I think it’s the same with Ajay sir after one or two films. I think Singham script, the first Singham; he heard the script and we had a 7 am shift in Goa. He came from London at 10 in the night. He first did his haircut for the cop role, and did his dress trial. Around 10:30, 11 or 12 something we started the narration, and we completed the narration at 2 in the morning for a 7 am shoot. At 2:30 am, he came to know what the film is. After Golmaal, he has never heard the script.”
Cirkus is based on William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, which inspired the Gulzar cult comedy, Angoor and is set in the 1960s’. The film also stars Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, Johny Lever, Siddharth Jadhav, Tiku Talsania, Sanjay Mishra, Vijay Patkar, Ashwini Kalsekar, Mukesh Tiwari, Vrajesh Hirjee, Brijendra Kala among others. Directed by Rohit Shetty, Cirkus released on December 23, 2022.
Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty will reunite for Singham Again. The film also stars Deepika Padukone, who has previously worked with Shetty on Chennai Express.
