Actor Ranbir Kapoor has got two big films in his kitty currently. He has been shooting with Alia Bhatt for Brahmastra while he also has YRF’s Shamshera. Now, the latest update on the film has it that Ranbir might be seen playing a double role in the film. As per a report in a leading daily, the actor plays the role of both the protagonist and his father.
Mid-Day quoted a source close to the development revealing that Ranbir’s character is that of a dacoit who belongs to the tribe fighting from the British for their rights. The source said, “The film revolves around a dacoit tribe that is fighting for its rights and independence from the British Raj. Apart from playing the protagonist, Ranbir might also be seen as the central character’s father. He has been shooting for both roles simultaneously. This is the first time in his 12-year-long career so far that Ranbir will play a double role.”
Shamshera, directed by Karan Malhotra, reunites Ranbir with YRF after a hiatus of 12 years. The actor was last in critically acclaimed film Rocket Singh: Salesman Of The Year in the year 2009. The new film with URF also features Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt with him. If the reports about Ranbir’s dual characters are true, then it’s the first time that the actor will be seen playing a double role on-screen.
Meanwhile, Ranbir is also in news for his romantic relationship with Alia Bhatt. In fact, the actress made it all official publicly by saying ‘I love you’ to Ranbir from the stage at the recently held Filmfare awards 2019. She mentioned the actor in her acceptance speech, called him ‘special one’ and then uttered the three golden words. The best part about the entire love-dovey moment was Ranbir’s cute reaction. He covered his face with hands and blushed when Alia expressed her feelings.
