Asked if he had seen parts of Rishi Shamshera, Ranbir said in a press conference, “Papa ne Karan ke saath Agnipath mein kaam kiya tha (My father worked with Karan in Agnipath). The film brought him a lot of fame and he was very happy with the impact of the film. When I signed this film, he (Rishi) was very happy because he was always complaining about my film choices.
Ranbir added, “Teri’s film choices are ekdum bakwas hai. Tu ic film banata hai (Your film choices are completely worthless. You make such films), it doesn’t reach people.” Unfortunately, he had never seen the trailer or the poster of the film. The film, but he I know someone is out there, proud and smiling at me.”
Directed by Karan Malhotra, Shamshera is based on the fictional city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is captured and tortured by a ruthless tyrannical general. While Ranbir plays a tribal leader who fights against a general, Sanjay Dutt essays the role of a general named Shudh Singh in the film. Vaani Kapoor starrer Shamshera will release in theaters on July 22.
Speaking about the film, Ranbir said in a recent interview to PTI, “It’s not easy to portray a larger-than-life character as there are a lot of responsibilities involved. Also, I have two roles in this film..one character. Shamshera plays the father and son of Balli, which should be different from each other. My first attempt in this genre, people I think they will appreciate it.”
