As Bollywood has become a family fiefdom, mostly the sons, daughters, and other relatives of the veteran Bollywood film artists work in new films for peanuts to keep the costs in control.
A Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor (son of actor Rishi Kapoor and grandson of actor Raj Kapoor) will appear as Shamshera in Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) upcoming action-adventure film of the same name. The film is part of YRF’s 3-movie deal with Karan Malhotra, who directed the film Agneepath.
Talking about the movie, Ranbir Kapoor says, “Shamshera is exactly the film I was looking for. While growing up watching Hindi commercial cinema, I had an image of what a film hero should be doing. Shamshera allows me to do everything that I had imagined and it’s a very exciting project for me.”
