Though there have been a few dacoit dramas like in recent years, the larger-than-life films revolving around daakus went out of Bollywood mainstream cinema before the mid-1990s. Now, Ranbir Kapoor takes on the role of Shamshera in the movie by the same name, which promises the revival of this genre.Set in a bygone era in the hinterland, the desi action masala entertainer also stars Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist, while Vaani Kapoor plays Ranbir’s leading lady. The movie, which is being mounted on a massive scale, has Yash Raj Films pulling out all stops to give it the canvas that it requires.Ranbir started shooting in his dacoit avatar for this Karan Malhotra directorial on 7th December at a set that’s being built specially for it. No wonder it’s been closely guarded by the unit members. According to Report Ranbir and Sanjay will sport looks which they haven’t donned before.
