Mumbai: Ranbir’s Shamshera featuring actress Vaani Kapoor is all set to hit the screens on 31 July 2020. The action entertainer will be directed by Karan Malhotra and produced by Yash Raj Films. Shamshera, also starring Sanjay Dutt as an antagonist, is set to go on the floors by the end of this year, according to the production house.
The project marks Ranbir’s return to YRF after a gap of nine years. His last project with the banner was Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year. The teaser of the film gave us another new look of Ranbir as a dacait and that itself is again enough to put the interest of the fans.
The story is not exactly about a dacoit, tells Ranbir. It is about a tribe of dacoits who strive hard to get Independence from the British and who want their own rights, Ranbir said.
He added, “There was a great story of heroism, a story rooted in our country which actually happened back then. It is a departure from the kind of films I have done, it is not the coming-of-age lover boy roles which I have done often. Shamshera is in the aspirational space, the space of true, badass commercial cinema.
