Ranbir Kapoor in and as 'Shamshera' in YRF's action entertainer
Ranbir Kapoor, after a slight downfall, is now looking good to redeem himself. He already has Rajkumar Hirani's 'Sanju' and Ayan Mukerji's 'Brahmastra' to get him back into the game. And now, in a pleasant surprise, Yash Raj Films has announced its next - 'Shamshera' - with Ranbir in the lead. The film, a period drama, will be a masala entertainer.

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.
Meanwhile, Ranbir is wooing everybody with his 'Sanju' avatar
The 'Rockstar' actor is currently gearing up for the release of 'Sanju'. His uncanny resemblance to Sanjay Dutt in the teaser and posters of the film has left cine buffs in disbelief.
