Ranbir Kapoor is going to star in Karan Malhotra’s Shamshera and the first look has been revealed. An animated teaser has been launched by the Yash Raj Productions, which showcases the actor as a dacoit, and the voiceover that introduces his character. The graphics are steeped in bronze, and the costumes are from an era long past, with Ranbir holding arrows in his fist, and his face marked by scars. As a sandstorm rages on, he says, “Karam se dacait, dharam se Azaad,” before his character is introduced as “Shamshera”. The movie is going to be produced by Aditya Chopra.
The movie looks like an epic drama, with a scope for action, and Ranbir’s presence is surely going to make it one of the most anticipated upcoming Bollywood projects. The female lead and the full cast has not been revealed yet, but it seems that there is going to be an announcement soon enough, as the shooting begins.
Ranbir is soon going to be seen in Sanju, the biopic based on Sanjay Dutt, which is directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The teaser trailer for the movie was released last month, and received acclaimed from audiences, who felt that the actor had gotten the body language and the mannerism of the notorious star, just right. Shamshera seems to be another promising project that could lead Ranbir to superstardom, and his slate seems very interesting, with another epic, Bhramastra, releasing next year.
