"Now that's a hot morning"
Alia Bhatt has reacted to Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera look and she was more than excited.
A poster featuring Ranbir’s character was leaked a week before the makers planned to unveil the poster.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, Shamshera sees Ranbir play a dacoit.
Sporting a rugged look, Ranbir is seen in the poster with a stern expression and posing with an axe.
Shamshera is set in the fictitious city of Kaza and it tells the story of a man who became a slave, who then becomes a leader and later a legend for his tribe.
Ranbir’s wife Alia Bhatt shared the poster and it made her day as she wrote:
“Now that’s a hot morning… I mean… good morning.”
Soon after Alia shared the post, fans flooded the comments with heart, fire and lovestruck emojis.
Hours after Ranbir’s look was leaked, Karan Malhotra reacted to it.
Speaking about the leak, he said:
“We keep planning our lives so that we land things at the perfect time but in doing so we forget that the universe is always on time. Incidents like these are a true example of that!
“I’m just happy that people and fans of Ranbir Kapoor are loving his look and the poster of Shamshera.
“We wanted to start our campaign mid-next week, but it looks like fans couldn’t wait for us to begin.
“I don’t blame them. They have waited for too long.”
“Ranbir is returning to the cinemas after 4 years, and it is difficult to control the excitement. I’m just glad that the reactions are great.”
Shamshera is set to release in theatres on July 22, 2022.
Ranbir Kapoor was last seen in Sanju but he has a number of projects in the pipeline.
He will star opposite Shraddha Kapoor in Luv Ranjan’s untitled romantic-comedy film. The film also stars Boney Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia and is slated to release during Holi 2023.
Ranbir also has Ayan Mukerji’s fantasy adventure Brahmastra Part One: Shiva alongside Alia Bhatt.
The film also features Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy.
The film, which is the first part of a trilogy, is expected to release on September 9, 2022.
