Gone are the days when Bollywood is dubbed as the top industry in the country. With the current Pan-India pushing more and more successful films from the south, Bollywood is unable to counter the south films. On the flipside, Bollywood films are failing at the box office.
Even Akshay Kumar could not save Bollywood as his last two films ended as big duds. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 gave a small hope with its theatrical run. Coming to the OTT release, the Kartik Aaryan starrer could not impress the OTT lovers as watchers started to point out the mistakes.
Bollywood pinned high hopes on talented hero Ranbir Kapoor who is coming with the big-ticket film Shamshera. Looks like the Kapoor hero is all set to end the dry run of Bollywood. The recently released trailer looks spectacular and promises a visual grandeur.
The upcoming film is set in the British Era in the 1800s and tells us the story of a tribe that wants to be free from British rule and the tough battle it does. The tribe is led by none other than Ranbir Kapoor and dynamic hero Sanjay Dutt is playing the baddie who will be seen as a ruthless officer who works for the British.
For the first time, Ranbir Kapoor is playing a dual role as he essays the role of a father and son. The father character, who leads the tribe has the dream of experiencing freedom and his son joins the tribe as the leader. Can he achieve what his father wanted to form the crux of the story?
Tall hero Sanjay Dutt will be seen as Daroga Shuddh Singh, a fierce and evil character who was shown as a ruthless police officer. Vaani Kapoor added glamour with her stunning looks in the film. She will pair opposite second Ranbir Kapoor.
The Ranbir Kapoor starrer was postponed a few times. Finally, Shamshera locked July 22nd as the release date. Directed by Karan Malhotra, the high ticket film is bankrolled by Aditya Chopra under the legendary Yash Raj Films banner. Shamshera stars Ronit Roy, Tridha Choudhury, Ashutosh Rana, and Saurabh Shukla.
