Simmba is Ranveer's first release after his wedding to actress Deepika Padukone. Simmba is the story of a corrupt cop who turns his life around after a life-altering event. Simmba also features Sonu Sood and Ajay Devgn. On Thursday, Simmba made it to the list of trends after the film's first song, titled Aankh Maare, hit the Internet. Aankh Maare is the revamped version of a song of the same name, which featured in 1996 film Tere Mere Sapne.
