Ranbir Kapoor’s flexibility with his onscreen roles is making him appear in the speed dial of filmmakers and his newest buzz as a double role in Shamshera is one among them. According to latest buzzs, the Sanju star who is ready to make big again in Brahmastra alongside Alia Bhatt is also armored up for his double role ever. Mid Day report claims that the actor who will be seen playing a dacoit in the film may be seen in a double role for the first time.
According to the report, the actor will play both a father and his son in the film. A source told the media daily, “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.”
The film which also marks Ranbir's return to Yash Raj Films after a period of nine years is also expected to clash with girlfriend Alia Bhatt’s Telugu debut RRR.
Sanjay Dutt who has proven to take on roles of dark roles in Agneepath has also been reported to play the antagonist. Karan, who has earlier directed Sanjay in the 2012 hit Agneepath, told a daily earlier, "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?"
Shamshera, produced by Aditya Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Films is expected to hit the screens in 2020.
