Shamshera is set in the heartland of India and will have jaw-dropping action sequences and Ranbir in a never-seen-before avatar. YRF has also cast the original bad boy of Bollywood, Sanjay Dutt, as the villain and have got the fans charged up with a tweet. "Ranbir will also be seen in Yashraj's upcoming film 'Shamshera" which will be directed by Karan Malhotra. "Her character graph is interlinked to the plot of the film making her a crucial catalyst in our hero's rebellious mission", Karan Malhotra, who directs the Yash Raj Film's project, confirmed. Ranbir Kapoor is quite excited to play a lead in this film where he will be sharing a screen with Sanjay Dutt.

Shamshera is going to be her third film with the production house after Shudh Desi Romance and Befikre. The Brothers director added that the 29-year-old actress perfectly fits the bill for the character. She is a fine actor, a fabulous dancer and a gorgeous heroine. 2018 saw several fresh pairings on the silver screen, be it Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal or Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.

Sanjay Dutt, whom Ranbir is playing in the biopic Sanju will be his merciless nemesis in Shamshera.

It seems the trend will be followed in Shamshera as the makers of the film have brought-on board Vaani Kapoor to play the female lead. The film goes on the floors by the end of this year and the shoot is expected to wrap by mid-2019.
