Ranbir Kapoor has found what he has been "looking for". No, it's not Alia Bhatt. Shamshera, the film, the actor has been looking for will soon see the light of the day.
The making of Ranbir Kapoor-Vaani Kapoor-starrer, Shamshera, is set to go on the floors by the end of this year and will hit theatres on July 31, 2020, according to the production house.
Ranbir will be seen palying the role of a dacoit in the action-packed film, which will also star Sanjay Dutt as antagonist.
To be directed by Karan Malhotra and produced by Yash Raj Films, the shooting of Shamshera is slated to begin by the end of this year, the production house said, adding that it will wrap up by mid-2019.
With this project, Ranbir returns to YRF after a gap of nine years. His last project with the banner was Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year. And, this will be Vaani's third film with the production house, after her debut Shuddh Desi Romance (2013) and Befikre (2016).
Earlier, Ranbir was quoted in a report: "'Shamshera' is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cinema, I had an image of what a film hero should be doing. 'Shamshera' allows me to do everything that I had imagined and it's a very exciting project for me. Karan is going to take me completely out of my comfort zone and I'm looking forward to this challenge".
