Actor Ranbir Kapoor will play a larger than life hero alongside action entertainer Shamshera. The creators dropped the trailer a few days ago and fans showered it with love, liking their favorite actor’s acting skills along with Sanjay Dutt’s villainous performance. Ranbir’s never-before-seen avatar and the anticipation of seeing him is sky-high.
In the second episode of a three part video series entitled RK Tapes, Ranbir talks about his favorite Hindi film heroes and how they have shaped his consciousness over the years! The superstar says: “I wanted to be Amitabh Bachchan. Growing up I wanted to be Shah Rukh Khan! After all, I had to be Ranbir Kapoor.”
Watch as Ranbir speaks straight from the heart in The Hindi Film Hero Episode 2:
Ranbir is reported to have said, “Growing up, these Hindi film heroes had become my real heroes. Everything I did, how I dressed, how I spoke, and subconsciously everything I did, was inspired by my heroes. But strangely, when I became an actor, I didn’t choose the kind of films that my heroes would choose. I may have satisfied the actor in me, but looking back at this 12-year-old Hindi film hero obsessed with Ranbir, I feel like he has yet to fulfill his dream.”
Ranbir leading actor Shamshera is set in the fictional city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shudh Singh. This is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader and then a legend for his tribe. He fights relentlessly for the freedom and dignity of his tribe. His name is Shamshera.
The high-octane, adrenaline-packed entertainer is set in the heart of 19th-century India. It has great promise of a never-before-seen Ranbir Kapoor playing Shamshera in the film! Sanjay Dutt plays Ranbir’s nemesis in this huge casting coup and his showdown with Ranbir will be something to watch out for as they’ll be merciless at each other.
This action spectacle was produced by Aditya Chopra and is slated for release on July 22, 2022 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
