While the government’s decision of letting the film shootings and productions resume came in as a breather, filmmakers are edging plans to get back to work. Now grapevine has that Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor will be the first two actors who will be getting back to work, to shoot the patchwork of their film Shamshera.
Period drama Shamshera has been in the making since a while. Directed by Karan Malhotra and backed by Yash Raj Films, Shamshera stars Vani Kapoor alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. According to reports, the team has only four days shoot left to complete the patchwork. Reportedly they will be wrapping it up in YRF studio.
A source close to the development of Shamshera, in a mid-day report, said, “The film’s principal shoot was complete when the lockdown was announced. Director Karan Malhotra and his team utilised the stay-at-home period by beginning the post-production work. As their next step of action, Karan and Yash Raj Films’ [YRF] head honcho Aditya Chopra have decided to film the remaining portion inside the YRF studio with limited crew, keeping the logistics and safety precautions in mind.”
Talking about the scheduling, he said, “The shoot dates have yet to be determined as the makers are awaiting approval from the Producers’ Guild. They have also sought the permission of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees to enable daily wagers to resume work on the project.”
Other than Shamshera, both Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor are part of other magnum opus projects. While Ranbir Kapoor has Ayan Mukerji’s ambitious Brahmastra, Sanjay Dutt is a part of KGF: Chapter 2 and Sadak 2.
