Ranbir’s big dream: To play villain once in his lifetime

Update : 03 Jul 2022, 12:35

Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor is coming to the big screen four years after he delivered the blockbuster 'Sanju' with the upcoming period actioner 'Shamshera', harbours the dream of essaying a negative character.

In the third episode of 'RK Tapes', a special promotional video series, titled ‘RK Tapes’, Ranbir talks about his love for the bad boys of Hindi cinema, the towering villains who make the hero bigger! Ranbir lists out his favourite on-screen villains - the iconic Amjad Khan as Gabbar Singh in Sholay, Amrish Puri as Mogambo in Mr India, Sanjay Dutt as Kancha Cheena in Agneepath, Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat and Shah Rukh Khan in Darr, etc. 

Ranbir is seen as saying, “We invariably side with the hero. But if there was no villain for the hero to show his heroism, how would a hero be a hero? I have a dream that once I will do a negative role and people will tell their kids ‘so jaa, so jaa nahi toh Ranbir aa jayega!’ As our cinema evolves, the villain’s character too is becoming more and more complex and interesting. I’m looking forward to the bad guys we are yet to watch, to the actors who will scare us out of our seats and to the villains that will redefine evil.”

Ranbir starrer Shamshera has been produced by Aditya Chopra and is set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22, 2022.
