Whether it's a warrior, a passionate lover, a scoundrel, a social worker, or a marriage planner, there’s no role that Ranveer Singh hasn’t done justice to. While we’ve been seeing him in some rather serious roles for quite some time, Rohit Shetty has now introduced the star in a never-seen-before avatar with his upcoming film Cirkus.

The trailer, released on Friday, sees the film set in a 1960s carnivalesque setting with Singh essaying double roles. The nearly four-minute-long clip flaunts a series of picturesque locations, colourful outfits, trapeze acts, grand circus tents and performers showcasing their talents on stage.

The fun part begins when we’re introduced to Singh’s double roles; as an electric man and a businessman being confused for each other on many occasions. From train rides to lovers to their families and more, Singh gets mistaken for his other character and gets into trouble throughout.

Cirkus bring in familiar characters from Shetty’s comedy universe such as the likes of Johnny Lever and Murali Sharma from the Golmaal franchise and Chennai Express. The trailer introduces a  bunch of characters in their element with the focus not only on the leads Singh, Varun Sharma, Jacqueline Fernandez and Pooja Hegde, but also on the side character actors like Lever, Siddharth Jadhav, Tiku Talsania, Sanjay Mishra, Vijay Patkar, Ashwinin Kalsekar, Mukesh Tiwari, and Vrajesh Hirjee.

With catchy songs, laughter, punch lines, romance, mystery, and a vibrant-looking ensemble cast, the film looks like a promising entertainer.

Inspired by Gulzar-Sanjeev Kumar’s film Angoor, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, Cirkus is scheduled for worldwide theatrical release on December 23, 2022.
