Ranbir Kapoor’s film ‘Sanju’ hits the theatres this week. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt. Furthermore, Kapoor will be working with Yash Raj Films for the film, ‘Shamshera’. A 53-second teaser for the film was released last month. The teaser had Kapoor holding an axe and arrows in his hands. The teaser had a tagline – “Karam se dacait, dharam se azaad.”
In an interview, the star opened up about the film. Kapoor said, “Shamshera is not a story of a ‘daaku’, but a film based in the 1800s, it is about a dacoit tribe who are fighting for their right and independence from the British. There was a great story of heroism, a story rooted in our country which actually happened back then.”
The star added, “It is a departure from the kind of films I have done, it is not the coming-of-age lover boy roles which I have done often. Shamshera is in the aspirational space, the space of true, badass commercial cinema.”
The film will also have a romantic element in it, reports Pinkvilla. About the same, he said, “A true blue Hindi film has everything- comedy, action, romance drama. And all these films I am doing are all in that direction, we are trying to have all these factors in it.”
‘Shamshera’ will be directed by Karan Malhotra and also includes Sanjay Dutt playing a negative role in the film.
