Sanjay Dutt might be seen playing the role of villain opposite Ranbir Kapoor in his forthcoming venture ‘Shamshera’. Sanjay has played an iconic villain by the name of Kancha in ‘Agneepath’ which was directed by Karan Malhotra who is also helming this project. Karan made ‘Brothers’ for Dharma productions but some tie got broke between the two hence Karan signed a three film deal with YRF. Shamshera is a massive epic as the motion poster suggested and set in period timing which is something that should officially be called as Baahubali effect.
So many producers have announced big period epic projects though not a lot of them are going on board recently. Ranbir is currently shooting for ‘Brahmastra’ which is a three part epic directed by Ayan Mukherjee and it is a bit futuristic in nature. After completing that film Ranbir will straight up jump in to this as it shall also take a long time. Karan and Sanjay produced one of the finest villain of all times in Agneepath and they might repeat the history again as the cast is pretty fantastic already in terms of star power and performance standard.
YRF is one of the finest production house in this country to produce big films as they don’t shy away from putting the money where their mouth is and the films end up looking very elegant. Their Tiger franchise totally matches the scale of a Hollywood film and so did Dhoom 3 as we await ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, which will be specially formatted for IMAX. Karan has made two good films before hence the expectations from him are sky high. Ranbir Kapoor has not had the best of luck with epics but they still have not stopped offering him those because he surely can deliver as he awaits the release of ‘Sanju’.
