Ranbir Kapoor Plays A Dacoit for the First Time!
Known as Bollywood’s lover boy, Ranbir Kapoor is all set for an image makeover with Shamshera. For the first time in his career, he will shed his “charming” appeal and play the role of a fierce dacoit. However, the buzz is that this dacoit is not all in all evil. In other words, we can expect to see shades of humanity and kindness in the character.
The First Look
Yash Raj Films surprised fans by releasing the Shamshera teaser on their Twitter handle this week. The 52 second teaser gives glimpses of Ranbir’ look in the film. Shrouded in dust and backed by an army of dacoits, the protagonist’s first appearance is intense and intriguing.
The Ultimate Face-Off: Sanjay Dutt Vs. Ranbir Kapoor
One one hand, Ranbir Kapoor is all set to appear as Sanjay Dutt in Sanju and on the other, the duo will work together for the first time in Shamshera. But that is not all! Sanjay Dutt plays Ranbir’s arch enemy in the film and his character is as deadly as Ranbir’s. It will be truly fascinating to watch the two locking horns in their dreadful dacoit avatars.
The Leading Lady
YRF again took to Twitter to officially announce Vaani Kapoor as the leading lady in Shamshera. According to the makers of the film, Vaani’s character acts as a catalyst to the plot’s progress. Her journey is intertwined with that of the protagonist as well as his rebellious mission. This is the first time when Vaani and Ranbir will appear together in a film.
Ranbir’s 3rd Collaboration with YRF
Previously, Ranbir has appeared in two YRF productions: Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year (2009). While the former was a romantic drama, the latter was a comedy. So, Shamshera would be the first time YRF and Ranbir will enter the action-adventure-dacoit genre. Also, this marks the actor’s return to YRF after a span of 9 years.
