Sanjay Dutt on Shamshera’s Poster!!
On 23rd June a new poster of Shamshera was out. The new poster features Sanjay Dutt giving very gangster vibes. Talking about the film, Sanjay said, “It is always exciting to play the antagonist because you get to bend the rules, break the rules. I realized that when you play the antagonist, there are actually impositions or moral boundaries. You can be disruptive. You can take a character from paper and play it the way you want to. I have a lot of fun when I play an antagonist and I’m fortunate that people have loved my performances as the nemesis of a hero so far.”

Sanjay Dutt as Shudh Singh
Sanjay Said, “Shudh Singh is a character that you have never seen on screen. He is just pure evil. He is menacing, he is untrustworthy and he will go to any length to wreak havoc. I loved the fact that Karan Malhotra created a villain like this and he thought of me to play this role. He gave me a free hand to bring Shudh Singh to life and I hope people like my effort.”
Sanjay Dutt was thrilled to know the casting coup in Shamshera that pitted him against Ranbir Kapoor. Four years ago, Ranbir had played Sanju, which was Sanjay Dutt’s biopic! The actor said, “It is also quite interesting that I’m pitted against Ranbir, who played me in Sanju. So, the on-screen enmity between him and me becomes all the more interesting for people. Ranbir is a brilliant actor but this film sees him in a new gaze. His boyish charm is inimitable, but in this film, he is a man who finds his footing and looks glorious on-screen.”
Working with director Karan Malhotra!!
After Agneepath, this is the first film after ages that he is doing with Karan Malhotra. Sanjay had given us a villain for the ages as Kancha in that film and he is hoping that audiences will shower him with similar love as Shudh Singh in Shamshera. He added, “Karan always creates a larger-than-life villain. Be it my character Kancha in Agneepath and now as Shuddh Singh, he knows how to present an antagonist. Personally, I hope he keeps creating more exciting villains for me. He’s someone who hasn’t left the commercial zone of Indian cinema and I have full faith that with Shamshera he has whipped up a winner.”
On 22nd July the film will be released. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor, Vaani Kapoor, and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Shamshera is produced by Yash Raj Films. in Shamshera, Ranbir Kapoor is playing a larger-than-life quintessential Hindi film hero for the first time in his career. The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the 1800s in the heartland of India. The story of Shamshera is set in the fictitious city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved, and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shudh Singh.
