This actress to star opposite Ranbir Kapoor in 'Shamshera'
The announcement of Yash Raj Films' 'Shamshera' starring Ranbir Kapoor came as a surprise last week. Fans were thrilled to learn that Ranbir is finally doing an out and out masala entertainer. And now, as per a report by BollywoodLife, Vaani Kapoor will play the female lead in the period drama.
'Shamshera' marks Vaani's fourth collaboration with Aditya Chopra after 'Shuddh Desi Romance', 'Befikre' and an untitled film with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. While 'Shuddh Desi Romance' fared well at the box office, 'Befikre' was an outright flop. Her third YRF project is slated to hit the screens next year.
"It's 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," said Ranbir.
Karan Malhotra, who has previously helmed Hrithik Roshan-Priyanka Chopra's 'Agneepath' and Akshay Kumar-Sidharth Malhotra-Jacqueline Fernandez's 'Brothers', will direct 'Shamshera'. This will be his first film outside Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. 'Shamshera' marks the third collaboration between Ranbir and YRF after 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' and 'Rocket Singh: Salesman Of The Year'. The film is expected to go on floors by the end of 2018.
