Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt will clash on the screen in Karan Malhotra’s action drama Shamshera on July 31, 2020, Yash Raj Films said in a press release.

Ranbir Kapoor is reportedly playing a dacoit in the film, while Dutt plays a “ruthless, merciless villain”, according to the press release. Vaani Kapoor has been cast as a “gorgeous temptress”.

In a motion poster released by Yash Raj Films on May 7, an animated version of Ranbir Kapoor was seen in the garb of a dacoit, holding a battle axe in one hand and arrows in another.

Malhotra has previously directed Agneepath (2012), in which Dutt was the antagonist. The shooting of Shamshera will begin by the end of this year and is scheduled to be wrapped up by mid-2019.

Kapoor played Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani’s latest blockbuster Sanju. The actors share screen space in a post-credits song.
