Shamshera is set in the 1800s in the heart of India. Ranbir will star in the dual role of Shamshera and Balli, while Sanjay Dutt will portray Ranbir’s nemesis. Shamshera, produced by Aditya Chopra, will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22.
In an interview with India Today, Sukhwinder opened up about his experience of working with Ranbir. He said, “When I went on set… [of Shamshera]there was a fight sequence and i saw that Ranbir Kapoor sahab, this boy, did everything only with his natural physical effort. This 60-65 kg boy lifted 100 kg boys and there were no special effects. People have the impression that dramatic action scenes are created with special effects. Later I learned that about 80 percent of physical exertion is used. I was stunned. Ranbir is very humble and I saw him take real action. Vo ladka girta hain, padta hain, utha tha hain [He falls and gets up again] and I asked him if he was hurt or not. He said ‘abhi kya batau (what should I say now)?, the show must go on. My grandfather [Raj Kapoor] always said the show must go on’. So this was practical information for me that not everything is a special effect.”
Directed by Karan Malhotra, the film is set in the fictional city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian General Shudh Singh.
