The official trailer for Ranbir Kapoor’s highly anticipated period action flick “Shamshera” dropped on Friday, featuring the Bollywood star in a never-before-seen avatar of a dacoit fighting for independence from the British.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, the Yash Raj Films film is set in the 1800s and also stars Sanjay Dutt, Vaani Kapoor, Saurabh Shukla and Ashutosh Rana.
The nearly three-minute trailer features Ranbir Kapoor as the titular hero, a Robin Hood-like figure from a tribe that robs the rich.
Dutt, who played famed villain Kancha Cheena in Malhotra’s 2012 film “Agneepath,” is once again playing the antagonist.
He tries out for the role of Daroga Shudh Singh, a ruthless cop tasked by the British to subdue the Shamshera tribe.
“War” star Vaani Kapoor appears in the trailer as Sona, a dancer and love interest of Ranbir Kapoor’s character.
Towards the end of the trailer, the makers confirmed that Ranbir Kapoor is playing a dual role in the film, as he is also confirmed to be playing Shamsher’s father.
“Shamshera,” which was announced in May 2018, is set to hit theaters in IMAX on July 22. It will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Ranbir’s last big screen outing was 2018’s ‘Sanju’. After ‘Shamshera’, the actor will also be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra: Part One Shiva’.
