When Yash Raj Films' released the teaser of their upcoming project with Rabir Kapoor, titled Shameshera the internet stood still because it was the greatest thing that we've seen. However, we have more good news. The project will be bringing Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor for the first time together on-screen!
The film will go on floors at the end of the year
Sanjay Dutt will be seen as the antagonist in the period action- drama. Talking about the same, director Karan Malhotra said, "Shamshera is a ferocious and fearless character in the film. Therefore his nemesis, the villain had to be even more fierce and monumental in every aspect. Who better than Sanjay sir to give us that impact on screen?"
Meanwhile, Sanjay said, "My father and Yash (Chopra) uncle were close friends and now that I'm doing my first YRF film, it is an extremely emotional moment for me. When I heard Karan's idea to pit Ranbir against me, I thought it was brilliant. I look forward to shooting this incredibly exciting film, my second with the hugely-talented Karan Malhotra."
RK will be portraying the role of a dacoit in Shamshera. We saw him carrying an axe and a quiver of arrows in the recently released trailer.
The film is scheduled to go on floors by the end of this year and be done by mid 2019!
