Ranbir Kapoor, who has been gearing up for his release in Sanju and already has a biggie Brahmastra, has bagged another movie. Shamshera, a Yash Raj Film, was announced early this morning. This came totally unexpected because no news hinting this surfaced the social media.
YRF took their social account and tweeted as, “करम से डकैत, धरम से आज़ाद Presenting #RanbirKapoor in a never seen before avatar in YRF’s next action adventure #SHAMSHERA. Directed by @karanmalhotra21 | @ShamsheraMovie.”
From what this announcement video hints, we’ll see Ranbir Kapoor as a dacoit and he looks raw and rugged in this. The release date has not been revealed yet but we can say it could in the second half of 2019 as his Brahmastra will release on 15th August 2019.
Ranbir Kapoor delivered his first hit with YRF’s Bachna Ae Haseeno and then he garnered outstanding critical acclaim for his fantastic performance in Rocket Singh: Salesman of The Year. After 9 long years, YRF and Ranbir are set to collaborate again for a desi, mega-action, masala entertainer titled Shamshera. The film is part of YRF’s 3-movie deal with Karan Malhotra, who directed the blockbuster Agneepath and then the action spectacle Brothers.
Talking about the movie, Ranbir Kapoor says, “Shamshera is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cinema, I had an image of what a film hero should be doing. Shamshera allows me to do everything that I had imagined and it’s a very exciting project for me. Karan is going to take me completely out of my comfort zone and I’m looking forward to this challenge.”
This high-octane adventure is set in the heartland of India and will have jaw-dropping action sequences and a never seen before Ranbir Kapoor. Shamshera is set to go on the floors end of this year and shooting will wrap by mid 2019.
