Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor are going to be reunited in Karan Malhotra’s Shamshera. The movie is about a dacoit, Shamshera, and the announcement, which was made this week, was accompanied by an animated teaser which showed the first look of the actor in the guise of a fierce dacoit that impressed the social media. The movie is going to begin shooting at the latter end of the end, and Sanjay is reportedly going to play the villain of the story, thus pitting him against Ranbir, who has already been established as a grey character. Karan Malhotra previously worked with Sanjay in Agneepath, which was both critically and commercially successful.
The two actors seem to share a bond, since Ranbir is portraying Sanjay in the biopic, Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, and it will be interesting to see the two performers come together on the big screen in an epic movie. The female star for the project has not been announced, but it has been rumored since months that the actress Vaani Kapoor is going to join Ranbir in the project.
After a series of failures, except Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, it seems that Ranbir is going to be back with interesting projects that are not only commercial, but also have large scope for characters. He is going to be seen in a biopic, Sanju, a superhero movie, Bhramastra, and a period drama, Shamshera. It seems that he is finally making smart choices that further his career in a positive way.
It's official! Karan Malhotra brings his #Agneepath villain @duttsanjay to his next Yash Raj project, #Shamshera. Dutt will be playing fierce and monumental villain and be pitted against Ranbir Kapoor in the movie. The period action-adventure goes on floors in November 2018! @yrf pic.twitter.com/FqiZJEWFDA
