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.
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.
The much-awaited biopic also features Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Boman Irani, Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Karishma Tanna, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh and will hit the screens on June 29.
Ranbir will be seen as a superhero in his 'Wake Up Sid' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' director Ayan's 'Brahmastra'. The big-budgeted action-adventure will be a trilogy and the first installment will be out next year. It also stars Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy.
