The film's director Karan Malhotra confirmed the news recently
Vaani Kapoor has been zeroed in on to star opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Shamshera. She will play the character of a travelling performer from the heartland of India in the film.
The film's director Karan Malhotra says, "Vaani plays Ranbir's love interest in the film and is a very important collaborator in his character's journey. Her character graph is interlinked to the plot of the film, making her a crucial catalyst in our hero's rebellious mission. Vaani is a perfect fit for the role. She is a fine actor, a fabulous dancer and a gorgeous heroine. We wanted someone absolutely fresh to surprise the audience and she beautifully fits that brief."
The film, produced by Yash Raj Films, promises "jaw-dropping action sequences" and Ranbir Kapoor in a never-seen-before avatar. Sanjay Dutt plays the merciless nemesis of Ranbir in the project.
Shamshera is set to go on floors by the end of 2018 and shooting will wrap by mid-2019.
