Ranbir Kapoor to star in YRF's Shamshera
The actor is currenty awaiting the release of the biopic Sanju, in which he plays Sanjay Dutt
Actor Ranbir Kapoor will go all fierce and intense for the upcoming action-adventure film Shamshera, which marks his comeback to the Yash Raj Films (YRF) banner after nine years.
A teaser of the project shows Ranbir leading an army of dacoits, and delivering the punch line of the film in a husky voice: "Karam se dacait, dharam se azaad."
"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," says Ranbir.
The film is part of YRF's three-movie deal with Karan Malhotra, who directed Agneepath and Brothers.
"Karan is going to take me completely out of my comfort zone and I'm looking forward to this challenge," adds Ranbir.
Shamshera is set to go on the floors at the end of this year and shooting will wrap up by mid-2019.
Ranbir's last two outings with YRF were Bachna Ae Haseeno and Rocket Singh: Salesman Of The Year.
