Sanjay Dutt shares his admiration for Shamshera and Ranbir Kapoor


Ranbir Kapoor was the centre of attention as he prepared to make his almost four-year absence from the big screen with Shamshera. Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor both played significant parts in this movie. This movie was the result of a lot of labour, and the stars did everything in their power to promote it. Unfortunately, the movie garnered a lot of negative feedback from fans and did poorly at the box office after its debut. Sanjay wrote a lengthy post praising the movie and how much he respects Ranbir and his efforts on his Instagram account today.

In the note Sanjay Dutt wrote, “Films are acts of passion – passion to tell a story, to bring to life characters you’ve never met before. Shamshera is one such labour of love to which we gave our all. It’s a movie made up of blood, sweat and tears. It’s a dream that we brought on screen. Movies are made for audiences to relish. And every movie finds its viewers, sooner or later. Shamshera found a lot of people hating on it; some of the hate came from people who didn’t even watch it. I find it horrible that people don’t respect the hard work we all put in. I admire Karan as a filmmaker, and mostly as a person. He is one of the best directors I have worked with in my long career of four decades. He has the knack of giving characters that strike a chord. We did that with Agneepath, where he gave me Kancha Cheena to play. The process of working on it was brilliant. He trusted me again with Shamshera and what a ball of a time we had making this film, and bringing to life Shuddh Singh.”

Sanjay Dutt also spoke about Ranbir Kapoor and mentioned, “Ranbir and I have forged a bond for life with this film. His craft and ability to depict emotionality on screen is par excellence. It pains to see how people are so eager to spew hatred on the work of one of the most hardworking and talented actors of our times. Art and our commitment to it transcends the hate coming our way. The love we feel for the film and its people goes beyond everything that’s being said. Baaki kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna! #ShamsheralsOurs.”
