Sanjay Dutt on Shamshera 

Days ago filmmaker Karan Malhotra’s film Shamshera featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Vaani Kapoor in lead roles was released and to everyone’s surprise, it became a massive flop at the box office. According to the reports, the film’s earnings dropped by 55%.


Sanjay Dutt took to Twitter and clapped back at trolls by writing a long message on the film Shamshera and captioned, #ShamsheraIsOurs. He penned down a heartfelt note, that reads, “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.”

Hard work

He further added and explained why Shamshera was close to people’s hearts. He wrote, “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.”

“Shamshera will find its tribe someday but until it does, I stand resolute with the film, the memories we created the bond we shared, the laughs we had, the hardships we went through. I thank the whole unit – cast crew of the film who stayed with the film for four years, through the pandemic, through my own personal rough times.”


Taking about his co-actor Ranbir Kapoor, he said, “His craft and ability to depict emotionally on screen is par excellence. It pains to see how people are so eager to spew hatred on the work of one.”

In the end, the actor concluded by saying, “Baaki kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hain kehna!” #ShamsheraIsOurs
