After the thunderous success of War (2019), Vaani Kapoor has started shooting for her next film Shamshera. The movie also stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. This is the first time when Vaani Kapoor is teaming up with Ranbir Kapoor. Heaping praises on her co-star, the actress said that working with him has been a very good experience for her.

“Working with him has been a very good experience for me. He is normal and humble in his approach. He doesn’t come on a film set thinking that he has been a part of many successful films and is a huge star. He doesn’t come with any of that baggage, so it is very easy to work with such actors. Working with him has helped me become a better actor,” said Kapoor.

She went on to add, “It is a period drama and I haven’t been a part such a film earlier in my career, so it has been a new experience. I will be seen in a different avatar but unfortunately, I can’t talk about my character. I can say that it is something that I haven’t done before.”

Shamshera is scheduled to enter theatres on July 31, 2020.
