The trailer where Ranbir Kapoor plays Sanjay Dutt in the film based on the actor's life, titled 'Sanju' had everyone on the edge of their seats. And now, we hear that the two actors will even be seen sharing screen space. What’s more is that Sanjay Dutt is all set to play Ranbir Kapoor's nemesis in the film.
In what can be called the ultimate casting coup, director Karan Malhotra has got Sanjay Dutt to play the ruthless, merciless villain in YRF’s period action-adventure ‘Shamshera’! He will be pitted against Ranbir Kapoor in the mega-action spectacle. Interestingly, ‘Shamshera’ will be Sanjay’s first ever film with YRF!
Karan 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?”
Talking about the film, Sanjay Dutt said, “My father and Yash uncle were very close friends and now that I’m doing my first YRF film, it is an extremely emotional moment for me. When I heard Karan’s idea to pit Ranbir against me, I thought it was just brilliant. I’m looking forward to shooting this incredibly exciting film, my second with the hugely talented Karan Malhotra.”
This high-octane adventure film is set in the heartland of India and will have jaw-dropping action sequences and a never-seen-before Ranbir Kapoor.
‘Shamshera’ is set to go on floors by the end of this year and the shooting will wrap by mid-2019!
