Shamshera: Ranbir’s Role Revealed…
Ranbir Kapoor is again at the peak of his career. With his film Sanju being a hit at the box office last year, he has two much anticipated movies this year. One is the fantasy filmBrahmastra, alongside his girlfriend Alia Bhatt, and the other is Shamshera. Shamshera also features Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist and Vaani Kapoor as an Indian dancer.
The movie is a Karan Malhotra directorial, of Agneepath fame, and it is touted be a dacoit drama. Ranbir will be doing a double in the movie and this will be the first one in his career. Confirming the same, a source close to the project said, “The film revolves around a dacoit tribe that is fighting for its rights and independence from the British Raj. Apart from playing the protagonist, Ranbir might also be as the central character’s father. He has been shooting for both roles simultaneously. This is the first time in his 12-year-long career so far that Ranbir will play a double role.”
About the film, Ranbir had earlier said, “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.”
