First impression is the last impression, we hope!
A fun teaser of Ranveer Singh-starrer Cirkus was released across platforms today, much to the delight of fans the world over. Directed by Rohit Shetty, the movie has been pegged as a period comedy. Singh reportedly plays a dual role in Cirkus, which also features actors like Pooja Hedge, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Varun Sharma in key roles.
The movie is scheduled to have a year-end release on December 23, 2022. Rumors are abuzz that the movie’s makers have drawn heavy inspiration from the 1982’s Bollywood blockbuster Angoor. Fyi, Angoor itself is a remake of the 1968’s movie Do Dooni Chaar. And well, Do Dooni Chaar was adapted from a Bangla language film Bhranti Bilaas, which was released in 1963!
Interestingly, if you’re thinking it ends here, think again. Because it doesn’t. The Bangla film (Bhranti Bilaas) in question is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors! A maze of remakes, perhaps?
The Reaser Appears To Be A Colourful Riot, And Here’s How Fans Have Reacted So Far:

Cirkus was conceptualized in 2020, but it took two whole years for things to materialize on the screens. The final schedule was supposed to be shot in Ooty in 2021, but due to the second wave of COVID-19, the shooting saw an untimely pause. The team eventually wrapped up in July this year.
Singh has been wanting to do a comedy film for years now, and he even put it out in the universe years ago. While offers came along, it wasn’t until Shetty offered him Cirkus that things began moving in the right direction. “I wanted to do a comedy film for years and Rohit sir has given me the chance after he was happy with my work in Simmba. I am a part of his cop franchise and now, I am a part of his comic franchise too. It’s just so great. Cirkus is my very own Golmaal,” said Singh in a recent interview.
He further added, “We have all the all-stars as a part of this ensemble and they bring in such madness. We have this crazy mad ride of a movie and I am so thrilled to be leading a film like this. The pandemic has impacted people in a different way and this film is one instance in which we want people to come in for two hours and just laugh their way out. It’s very exciting. There couldn’t have been a better film than Cirkus for me to explore the comic space.”
