Actor Ranbir Kapoor is all set to make his big screen reappearance with Yash Raj Films’ magnum opus, Shamshera. The first look of the Roy actor in the upcoming movie sent waves of excitement among fans, as he sports a rugged never seen before look in the movie.

Recently, the actor opened up about his favourite Bollywood actors and how largely he was impressed by them. Ranbir revealed that he wanted to be veteran superstar Amitabh Bachchan initially. “I wanted to be Amitabh Bachchan. When I grew up, I wanted to be Shah Rukh Khan! Finally, I had to be Ranbir Kapoor,” he said.

He also added, “By the time I grew up these Hindi Film heroes had become my real life heroes. Everything I did, how I dressed, how I spoke, subconsciously in everything I did was inspired by my heroes. But strangely enough, when I became an actor, I wasn’t choosing the kind of films my heroes would choose. So I may have satisfied the actor in me, but when I look back at that 12- year-old, Hindi Film Hero obsessed Ranbir, I feel he still has to fulfill his dream.”

Shamshera has been helmed by director Karan Malhotra and also stars actress Vaani Kapoor as the leading lady and actor Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist, while main man Ranbir Kapoor is to play a double role in the movie, something that he shall be trying for the first time. It is set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22, 2022.
