Shamshera is a high-octane action film, in which Ranbir Kapoor will be seen playing the role of a dacoit, while Vaani Kapoor will be seen as a dancer and also as Ranbir Kapoor's love interest. The makers of the film released the teaser on social media a few months ago. The video featured Ranbir Kapoor in a tough and rugged look. The first look was released along with the caption: "Presenting Ranbir Kapoor in a never seen before avatar in YRF's next action adventure Shamshera."
