‘The trailer is just the tip of the iceberg!’: Karan Malhotra on the unanimously positive response that Shamshera trailer has got from audiences
Karan says, “I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the response that we have got for Shamshera. It validates that Hindi cinema, told in its most genuine and most authentic form, will always connect to the people who want to witness a big-screen spectacle. Adi’s unconditional belief in my vision and an outstanding creative collaboration with my cast and crew has brought this revenge-action entertainer to life.”
He adds, “What thrills me is that the trailer is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to Shamshera than what the audiences have seen in the trailer. So many more layers, so many more characters, and so many more mysteries will unfold when they watch this splendour on the big screen.”
Superstar Ranbir Kapoor is playing a larger-than-life quintessential Hindi film hero with the action entertainer Shamshera. He is thrilled that without giving out important aspects of the film’s plot, the trailer has made such a huge impact!
He says, “As an artiste, when you and the entire team put in all the hard work trying to make a big-screen visual spectacle, it is always heartening and validating to see such unanimously positive responses. I have to congratulate the captain of the ship, Karan Malhotra, YRF, and the entire team of Shamshera at this moment. It’s a really special feeling for all of us. But what’s most exciting is that the trailer doesn’t give us the entire story.”
Ranbir adds, “It has been intelligently handled because the trailer is not linear. It hardly tells you anything about Shamshera’s life. It doesn’t tell you anything about Balli’s emotional arc. It doesn’t show Sanjay Dutt’s insane villainy and the havoc he wreaks. For that, you have to wait for the film!”
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 Shuddh Singh. This is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader and then a legend for his tribe. He relentlessly fights for his tribe’s freedom and dignity. His name is Shamshera.
The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the 1800s in the heartland of India. This action extravaganza has been produced by Aditya Chopra and is set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22, 2022.
