- Shamshera will go on floors by the end of this year
- Shooting will wrap by mid-2019
- Vaani and Ranbir will co-star for the first time
Talking about the reason behind zeroing in on Vaani, the director said that he was on the lookout for a fresh face to be cast opposite Ranbir. "Vaani is a perfect fit for the role. She is a fine actor, a fabulous dancer and a gorgeous Hindi film heroine. We wanted someone absolutely fresh to wow audiences on the big screen and she beautifully fits that brief," IANS quoted him as saying.
Ranbir Kapoor plays a deadly dacoit in Shamshera, which is seen as a total entertainer. In the teaser shared earlier this month, Ranbir's first look (of sorts) from the movie was shared. A scarred faced Ranbir featured with weaponry in his hands and sported an intense look. Talking about the film, the director also said one can expect "jaw-dropping action sequences" in Shamshera.
