Yash Raj Films has announced its new project starring Ranbir Kapoor today. The action-adventure film with high octane action sequences is titled Shamshera and will be helmed by director Karan Malhotra, who has earlier directed Hrithik Roshan starrer Agneepath.
The film is touted to be a complete masala entertainer and promises to bring out a never-seen-before avatar of Ranbir. YRF also shared a short teaser of the film. Ranbir, who has until now showcased his lover boy image in most of his films in a career spanning over ten years, will essay the role of a dacoit in Shamshera.
Check out the announcement teaser below.
Talking about Shamshera, Ranbir, in a statement 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.”
Shamshera is expected to go on the floor by the end of 2018 and the shooting will wrap by mid-2019.
