Ranbir Kapoor never misses a chance to surprise his audience and fans. After leaving everyone in awe with his incredible transformation for the upcoming film Sanju, today the actor surprised us again when Yash Raj Films launched the teaser of their forthcoming biggie, Shamshera, wherein Kapoor is seen in the role a dacoit.

The film will be helmed by Agneepath fame Karan Malhotra. The director has inked a three-film deal with Yash Raj Films with Shamshera being the first movie of the deal. Apart from sharing the first look poster, the makers also unveiled a motion poster which shows Ranbir as a fearless dacoit holding an axe and a quiver of arrows.

Talking about the film, Ranbir said, “Shamshera is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cinema, I had an image of what a film hero should be doing. Shamshera allows me to do everything that I had imagined and its a very exciting project for me. Karan is going to take me completely out of my comfort zone and I’m looking forward to this challenge.”

Shamshera will go on the floor by the end of this year. It is expected to wrap by mid-2019. Before commencing work on this new project, Ranbir will finish Ayan Mukerji’s next Brahmastra for Dharma Productions.
