Only his third feature film after Agneepath in 2012 and remaking Gavin O’Connor’s Warrior in the form of Brothers in 2015, director Karan Malhotra is gearing up with the latest promotional rounds this year as we head closer to the wire with the release of his latest epic, Shamshera.
The film stars celebrated actor Ranbir Kapoor whose momentum has since been on the rise with the current campaign for Ayan Mukerji’s fantasy adventure, Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, which is said to be the start of a trilogy launching in September. For Shamshera, Kapoor leads the way for the production out of YRF50 with a story set in the fictional city of Kaza in the 1800s and tells the story of a tribe enslaved by a ruthless authoritarian serving the British, and the rise of one of the tribe’s own warriors who becomes a leader.
The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Vaani Kapoor, Ronit Bose Roy and Saurabh Shukla and will release in India and have day-and-date releases and rollouts in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on and after July 22.
