This high-octane adventure is set in the heartland of India and will have jaw-dropping action sequences. The shooting of the film will start towards the end of 2018 and wrap up in mid 2019.

With this film, Ranbir Kapoor joins a long list of the Bollywood actors who played deadly dacoits on screen.
