As an actor Ranbir Kapoor was spotted shooting, fans get to see his upcoming movie Shamshera’s first look. The leaked picture shows Ranbir Kapoor in a different avatar. Shamshera’s first looks make it impossible to recognize Ranbir as he comes up in a beefed look.
Wearing khaki vest contrasted with white dhoti, Ranbir Kapoor went totally shady rolling a scarf around his forehead. Shamshera’s first look shows Ranbir in the middle of a village gathering dressed in the same attire. Ranbir’s ripped biceps and heavy beard make him look like a gangster. From Shamshera’s first look, it is being assumed that Ranbir might play the role of a freedom fighter in the movie. As Ranbir told in his interview that the plot of the film is not based on a ‘Daaku’ but rather revolving around a local tribe fighting for their independence, Ranbir’s pickup of this kind of look clearly gives him a revolutionist’s face.
Ranbir tells PTI “Shamshera is not a story of a ‘dark’, but a film based in the 1800s, it is about a dacoit tribe who are fighting for their rights and independence from the British. There was a great story of heroism, a story rooted in our country which actually happened back then.”
Shamshera’s first look depicts that Ranbir is taking a break from his traditional lover roles and entering the new side of his character with Shamshera. Showing his extremist side, Ranbir tells media that the film will not bind itself in a typical nationalist theme but will also include elements of comedy, romance, action, and drama. “It is a departure from the kind of films I have done, it is not the coming-of-age lover boy roles which I have done often. Shamshera is in the aspirational space, the space of the true, badass commercial cinema. A true blue Hindi film has everything- comedy, action, romance drama. And all these films I am doing are all in that direction, we are trying to have all these factors in it.”
As the film is set to go on floors in 2020, Ranbir says that it is exactly the kind of film he was looking for. As clear from Shamshera’s first look, Ranbir agrees with the fact that Shamshera is highly challenging as it tends to take him out of his comfort zone. He says “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.”
After leaking of Shamshera’s first look, the excitement among fans has increased to the next level as they want to see Ranbir’s transformation.
