SNS | New Delhi |

After essaying the life of Sanjay Dutt in the biopic titled Sanju and committing to do a three-part film with Dharma Productions (Brahmastra), Ranbir Kapoor is all set to essay the titular role in Yash Raj Films’ action-adventure film, Shamshera.

The makers of the film made the announcement on Monday (May 7) by releasing the first official motion poster of the film, which will star Ranbir in a never-before-seen avatar.

According to reports, the film is a high-octane action adventure film, which will be helmed by Karan Malhotra, who is popular for directing the remake of Agneepath, which starred Hrithik Roshan in the lead role.

Talking about the film, Ranbir was heard as saying, “‘Shamshera’ is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cine, 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.”

Shamshera is expected to commence its shooting in late 2018 and wrap up by mid 2019.

In other news, Sanju is all set to be released on June 29, and Brahmastra also starring Alia Bhatt opposite Ranbir is expected to hit the theaters in mid 2019.
