Mumbai: In his upcoming movie Shamshera, Ranbir Kapoor has some challenging roles. The actor plays two different kinds of roles—one bearded and the other flaunting his washboard abs.
He has to go through immense physical training to remodel his face into this look. In a conversation, Ranbir spoke at length and breadth about the challenges he has been facing in Shamshera. He is playing his toughest on-screen character yet.
Talking about the transformation process, Ranbir said, “I think physical transformation has just become an occupational hazard now.” It is a visual medium. Especially if you do films of this nature where you are playing a quintessential hero, you have to look physically fit. So there was a particular body shape and presentation that Karan very clearly wanted for this part. Apart from that, it has definitely been the toughest film of my career.
Ranbir Kapoor added, “He was so clear about how he wanted both these characters portrayed, and that was really hard for me because it is not something that naturally comes to me.”
Ranbir Kapoor is in the lead role of Shamshera. The other main characters in this film are Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. Karan Malhotra is the director of the film.
