Good lord almighty, director Rohit Shetty is turning to Shakespeare and Ranveer Singh is all on-board. Yes, you read that right. Singh has signed a new film with the director which is titled Cirkus and will be Shetty’s take on the Shakespearean classic, The Comedy of Errors.

This Shakespearean adaptation will be presented by Bhushan Kumar and Reliance Entertainment and Shetty will not only be directing the film but also producing it. The film is slated to release towards the end of 2021, as of now.
This will be Singh’s third collaboration with the wildly successful director. They had collaborated last in the 2018 movie, Simmba which also starred Sara Ali Khan.
