Ranbir Kapoor is all set to play double role for the first time in his twelve year long career in YRF’s Shamshera. He will be seen playing father and son in this Karan Malhotra directorial period drama. Several leaked images of Ranbir’s look from the film have proved that this is nothing like the actor has ever done before.
It’s been officially announced that Vaani Kapoor has been roped in to play Ranbir’s love interest in the big budget incarnation film. But YRF has kept another actress’ name under wraps. As per our sources, apart from Vaani, there is another actress who is signed for the film and she will be seen essaying Ranbir’s wife role. It’s Iravati Harshe. The actress is a well-known name in the Marathi film industry. She has played important roles in several Hindi films as well. But this will be for the first time when she will be seen opposite a star like Ranbir Kapoor. She has been asked not to reveal about her role or about the film.
Apart from Ranbir, Vaani and Iravati, Sanjay Dutt has been signed to play antagonist in the period action-drama.
