Almost a month after its release in theaters, shamshera has become the talk of the town on social media for all the wrong reasons. Twitter users recently saw an apparent gaffe in the film, which featured Ranbir Kapoor, Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt, among others. Netizens shared stills from the film showing Ranbir’s Balli and Vaani’s Sona holding a “baby” that appeared to be visibly fake.

In stills that went viral from the Karan Malhotra director’s peak, it appeared that the creators had bundled a piece of cloth together to resemble a baby. Share a photo of Vaani Kapoor“Great acting streak, but let’s assume there’s a baby in her hand,” wrote one Twitter user. Another commented: “Whew, that’s a huge blunder for a 150 cr film.”
A third wrote: “I watched it last night and I noticed this in full climax it’s so visible that they’re shooting without baby, at least they can edit and add babyface there.” While netizens agreed that Vaani shouldn’t have been holding an actual baby in the action scenes, they at least argued over the lack of a proper doll. One wrote, “We used to buy a baby-sized toy and wrap it up for our college play, and these guys thought it wasn’t necessary! I’m amazed!”
In Shamshera, a real baby is seen when Vaani gives birth to her son under a tree while surrounded by rogue Daroga Shuddh Singh (Sanjay Dutt) police officers and British Army personnel. However, in the climactic sequence where: Ranbir Kapoor‘s Balli comes fighting for freedom for his wife and child, and the rest of his tribe, Vaani was seen with a gray cloth flying around as if there was nothing solid under his neck.
In one scene, where Vaani’s Sona is pushed to the floor with her child, a doll’s head can clearly be seen. In the final scene, where Ranbir has his son tied to his chest while he and Vaani are riding a horse, a doll with no visible facial features appears as the newborn.
Shamshera, which also starred Ronit Roy, Saurabh Shukla and Iravati Harshe, hit theaters on July 22. It failed to perform well at the box office and recently started streaming on Prime Video.
