Neighbourhood Entertainment Desk/ Simran Nijhawan: Ranbir Kapoor-starrer action adventure Shamshera is set to hit theatres on 31 July, 2020. Produced by Yash Raj Films, it features Kapoor as a Dacoit, a character that Kapoor has not explored in his previous films. In May 2018, director Karan Malhotra roped in Sanjay Dutt to play the villain in the film. This will mark Dutt’s first film under the Yash Raj banner. “Shamshera is a ferocious and fearless character in the film. Therefore his nemesis, the villain had to be even more fierce.
Kapoor is paired with Befikre actress Vaani Kapoor, who plays a travelling performer in the film, making it the first on-screen collaboration between the two actors. Shamshera will be a “high-octane” film with “jaw-dropping action sequences,” according to Yash Raj Films. Shamshera is set in the heartland of India and will go on the floors by the end of 2018. The shooting will wrap up by mid-2019.
