Shamshera movie is a Bollywood action-adventure period drama  starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor. It is produced by Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films. The movie is written and being directed by Karan Malhotra. Set in the 1800s, the film is about a dacoit tribe who took charge in fight for their rights and independence against the British. Ranbir Kapoor is playing double role, as central character Shamshera and his father. Vaani Kapoor is playing a dancer, the role of Aadarshini, who is Shamshera’s love interest. It is an action-adventure movie. She pushes her limits as an artiste as she takes professional training in Kathak for the movie.

Principal photography of the film began on 1 December 2018. The film will release on June 25, 2021 in IMAX theaters, coinciding with the Bakrid holiday weekend.

There is a lot of curiosity building up around the film and now, the actor himself has spilled a major detail about the film. The audiences are curious to know more and more about the movie. Shamshera in hindi means sword and  the word dacoits mean a group of people who are involved in criminal activity such as robbery.

Recently while speaking to Republic World, Ranbir revealed, “Shamshera is a wonderful action, thriller, adventure movie set in 1800. It’s about a Daaku tribe and their fight for justice from the British for getting what they deserve back.”

When asked earlier why he took up a film like Shamshera, the actor 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.”

The actor added, ” 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.”

The former will be essaying the role of the main antagonist in the film. Explaining his decision about casting Dutt as the villain, filmmaker Karan Malhotra said, “Shamshera is a highly ferocious and fearless character in the film. Therefore his nemesis, the villain had to be even more fierce and monumental in every aspect. Who’s better than Sanjay Sir to give us that impact on screen.”

This is the  first time, Ranbir will be seen playing a double role in his career. All the fans are excited to see the trailer of this movie and to also see Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor together on big screen.

The actress, Vaani Kapoor was last seen in War with Hrithik Roshan, will be essaying the role of Ranbir’s love interest in the film and is a very important collaborator in his character’s journey. In War also, Vaani has shown her potential as a dancer. She will be portraying the most desirable and sought-after travelling performer from heartland India.

It is going to be a high-octane, larger-than-life entertainer with jaw-dropping action sequences and Ranbir Kapoor in a never seen before avatar.
