Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt starrer Shamshera that was announced amidst a lot of excitement last year (December 2018) has seen little development since. The action thriller that was slated to be released mid-next year (July 2020) is yet to go on the floors. Now the latest buzz that’s doing the rounds is that due to constant delays the Karan Malhotra film produced by Yash Raj Films may be shelved.

However, CineBlitz has exclusively learnt that the reports are baseless and the film is on track, though a little delayed. A source close to the production house revealed that the Shamshera’s shoot has been delayed, but not cancelled. The source said, “The film is on track. It had been delayed due to reasons not under the control of the production house. The film requires Ranbir and Sanjay to sport a certain look. But with their films Brahmastra and Panipat respectively still going on, it became difficult for them to commit to bulk dates that they need to maintain the continuity of the looks. Hence the delay.” Well, that’s some relief and good news for the Ranbir fans, who were kicked about seeing him in a never-seen-before avatar.

Angel Has Fallen, which is the much-awaited third instalment of the Has Fallen series sees Hollywood heartthrob Gerard Butler reprise his role as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning. Directed by Ric Roman Waugh, the movie also stars Piper Perabo, who is best known for her roles in Cheaper by the Dozen, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, The Prestige, Beverly Hills Chihuahua and Looper.

The action thriller sees Perabo play Mike Banning’s wife Leah Banning. Though she was new to the role, Perabo found that a close-knit, playful rapport with co-star Gerard Butler came organically. She says, “I don’t know if it’s the Scottish in him, but Gerry has such an inviting rough and tumble charm.” She adds, “He’s very good at playing a man who tinges everything with humor, but when things aren’t light with Mike, Leah knows something is about to explode. The relationship felt very real and that made the danger also feel very real.”

Talking about what drew her to the role, Perabo reveals that it was director Waugh’s involvement and says, “I’d seen the documentary Ric made about servicemen trying to reintegrate back into civilian life, so I knew he would bring that vital empathy and understanding to the heart of this movie.”

Along with Piper Perabo and Gerard Butler, the movie also stars Morgan Freeman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Nick Nolte and Danny Huston. Director Ric Roman Waugh, who is known for his work in Felon, Snitch and Shot Caller is behind the camera for the franchise relaunch. PVR Pictures and MVP Entertainment bring the movie in theaters nationwide on August 23rd.  For more news and updates from the world of showbiz stay tuned to CineBlitz!
