Ranbir Kapoor, who is currently riding high on the success of Sanju, is known to experiment with his roles. Post Ayan Mukherji’s Brahmastra, Ranbir will next start prepping up for Karan Malhotra’s Shamshera. Produced by Yash Raj Films, Shamshera will feature Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist and Kapoor will be seen in the role of a dacoit. The Jagga Jasoos actor will be seen in such a role for the first time. Recently, in an interview, Ranbir opened up about playing a dacoit in Shamshera and said it’s a “very aggressive, intense and angry character”.

While speaking to DNA about the same, he said, “It’s definitely a very aggressive, intense and angry character. It is set in the 1800s and it’s about a dacoit tribe who is fighting for their rights and independence.” Further, talking about sharing screen space with Sanjay Dutt, he said, “It is an exciting space and Sanjay is playing an antagonist.” “Also, it is a new collaboration for me with Karan Malhotra. I am really looking forward to starting this project,” he added. Needless to say, after the phenomenal success of Sanju, it will be no less than a treat to see Ranbir and Sanjay together on-screen again.

Earlier, while talking about the film, the Rockstar actor was quoted by the Quint as saying, “Shamshera is not a story of a daaku, it is a film based in the 1800s; it is about a dacoit tribe that is fighting for its rights and independence from the British. This is a great story of heroism; a story rooted in our country. It is a departure from the kind of films I have done. It is not (like) the coming-of-age lover boy roles I have done often. Shamshera is in the aspirational space – true, badass commercial cinema.” Shamshera will hit theatres on July 31, 2020.
