Ranbir Kapoor a really special actor and my ‘personal favourite’: Vaani Kapoor
New Delhi: Vaani Kapoor, who is all set for her upcoming film Shamshera with Ranbir Kapoor, is all praise for the actor.
Yash Raj Films’ Shamshera starring superstar Ranbir and Bhavya Vaani is an adrenaline pumping action entertainer which is all set to release in IMAX in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Directed by Karan Malhotra of Agneepath fame, the film is highly anticipated as it marks Ranbir’s return to the theatres, 4 years after the release of Sanju. The pairing of Vaani and Ranbir is one of the most recent pairings to hit the screens in 2022 and she revealed that her character ‘plays a key role in the making of the story of Shamshera’.
Vaani said, “I play Sona, who was India’s most traveled artist in the 1800s. I have always chosen roles where my character pivots the script in a certain direction and in Shamshera too, Sona plays a vital role in the making of the story. I am thankful to Karan Malhotra for seeing me in this role. He held my hand every step of the way and guided me to bring Sona to life.”
About her character, Vaani reveals, “Sona has a strong will power, she is confident, a go getter, yet she has her own emotional weaknesses. He is definitely one of the freshest characters I have played on screen. I am wonderful to be with Ranbir Kapoor, a powerhouse of talent. He is indeed a very special actor and my personal favourite. ,
The story of Shamshera is set in the fictional town of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shuddh Singh. This is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader and then became a legend for his clan. He fights tirelessly for the freedom and honor of his clan. Her name is Shamshera.
The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the heart of India in the 1800s. This is a never seen before big promise from Ranbir Kapoor who plays the role of Shamshera in the film! Sanjay Dutt plays Ranbir’s arch-enemy in this massive casting coup and his showdown with Ranbir will be a sight to behold as they will go after each other brutally without any mercy.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, this action film is produced by Aditya Chopra and is slated to release on July 22, 2022.
