The film will be directed by Karan Malhotra, who earlier directed ‘Agneepath’ and ‘Brothers’.
‘Vaani plays Ranbir’s love interest in the film and is a very important collaborator in his character’s journey. Her character graph is interlinked to the plot of the filmmaking her a crucial catalyst in our hero’s rebellious mission,’ Karan said.
‘Vaani is a perfect fit for the role. She is a fine actor, a fabulous dancer, and a gorgeous Hindi film heroine. We wanted someone absolutely fresh to wow audiences on the big screen and she beautifully fits that brief,’ he said.
Talking about the movie, Ranbir Kapoor had earlier said, “Shamshera is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cinema, 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.”
Ranbir is reuniting with YRF after nine years since ‘Rocket Singh: Salesman of The Year’.
The mega-action, masala entertainer will go on floors later this year and will be wrapped up by mid-2019.
YRF’s high-octane, larger-than-life entertainer will have jaw-dropping action sequences and Ranbir Kapoor in a never seen before avatar.
Sanjay Dutt plays the merciless nemesis of Ranbir in the project.
Vaani was last seen in Aditya Chopra’s directorial ‘Befikre’ opposite Ranveer Singh.
