Tall and beautiful Vaani Kapoor, who is a Yash Raj Films find, is all set to feature in the fourth film of the premier production house. After ‘Suddha Desi Romance’ (2013), ‘Befikre’ (2016) and an upcoming untitled film with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, the actress has been confirmed opposite Ranbir Kapoor in the forthcoming action-adventure movie ‘Shamshera’. Ranbir, who was last seen in the Anurag Basu directorial ‘Jagga Jasoos’ (2017), plays the role of a dacoit in the movie while Vaani has been roped in to play a desirable and coveted travelling performer from the Indian heartland.
Talking about her character in the movie, director Karan Malhotra reveals that Vaani acts as the catalyst to Ranbir’s character. “Vaani plays Ranbir’s love interest in the film and is a very important collaborator in his character’s journey. Her character graph is interlinked to the plot of the film, making her a crucial catalyst in our hero’s rebellious mission.
He also adds that she is perfect for the role. “Vaani is a perfect fit for the role. She is a fine actor, a fabulous dancer and a gorgeous Hindi film heroine. We wanted someone absolutely fresh to wow audiences on the big screen and she beautifully fits that brief,” Malhotra said in a statement.
Besides Ranbir Kapoor and Vaani Kapoor, ‘Shamshera’ also features superstar Sanjay Dutt in a pivotal role. The ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.’ (2003) star plays a heartless dacoit in the movie. ‘Shamshera’ is expected to roll in the last quarter of 2018 and will release in the second half of 2019.
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor is currently busy with the promotion of his immediate release ‘Sanju’ which stars him in the role of actor Sanjay Dutt. Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani and bankrolled by Rajkumar Hirani Films and Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films, the biopic is scheduled for its extensive release on 29th June 2018.
