The trailer of highly-anticipated Rohit Shetty's next directorial Cirkus got released, and it divided the internet.  Ranveer Singh, Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez starrer was expected to end 2022 with a bang, but after watching the 3.40 minutes theatrical trailer, social media users are baffled over the content. 

The film has everything, except comedy. Cirkus has a talented ensemble cast, which even includes comic veterans Johnny Lever, and Sanjay Mishra. Actors like Varun Sharma, and Vrajesh Hirjee, who are known for bringing house down with laughter, looked wasted. The canvas is great. The authenticity of the 1960s is also there. But, the film lacked the major elements of comedy, pure, genuine laughable moments, and punch lines. Ironically, the film is based on the popular story of Willaim Shakesphere's Comedy of Errors, but sadly there is a complete absence of 'comedy' in the trailer. 

Ranveer Singh is gearing up for his next release Cirkus. The comedy-drama is directed by Rohit Shetty and the cast includes Varun Sharma, Tiku Talsania, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra and Vrajesh Hirjee in important roles. Today, the team has released the first song from the film ‘Current Laga Re’ starring Ranveer and Deepika Padukone. The song has already created a lot of buzz on social media. However, during the song launch event, the lead actor talked about doing comedy films. To note, the film is releasing on December 23.

Comedy is a different genre:

During the media interaction, Ranveer said, “If you can crack comedy as an artist, then you have cracked a different dimension. You can do drama, thriller, and every genre, but comedy is something else.” He also praised his wife Deepika and revealed which role is his favourite one. “Deepika’s best performance for me is Mennama from Chennai Express. She has done so many great films, but this one is just special. I can't wait for Rohit Shetty and Deepika to team up on a feature film,” the 83 actor added.

Cirkus trailer

The trailer features Ranveer Singh in a double role. The trailer begins with a circus scene, where Ranveer Singh aka "Electric Man" is performing one of his tricks. The trick goes wrong causing him to travel back in time to the 60s. He is mistaken for an electric man (his doppelganger).

Ranveer Singh’s work front:

On the work front, Ranveer Singh will next be seen in Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, co-starring Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi and Dharmendra. It will hit the theatres on April 28 next year.
