Anushka Sharma reacts to Ranbir Kapoor starrer Shamshera trailer, calls it 'spectacular and totally exciting'
Directed by Karan Malhotra, Shamshera is set to release in theatres on 22 July.
The trailer of Ranbir Kapoor-Vaani Kapoor-Sanjay Dutt starrer Shamshera is finally out and it’s no less than a visual spectacle for the fans and viewers. The trailer introduces Ranbir Kapoor as a dacoit, the protector of his tribe and a son fulfilling his father's legacy. Ranbir plays both father and son in the film. Sanjay Dutt plays the antagonist Daroga Shuddh Singh who is employed by the British to find the criminal who has terrorised the local villagers. Vaani Kapoor, it appears, plays the love interest of Ranbir’s character here.
Meanwhile, sharing the trailer of the film on her Instagram stories, Anushka Sharma called it spectacular and totally exciting. The trailer of Shamshera takes us back to the year 1871. The story of Shamshera is set in the fictitious city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved, and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shuddh Singh (Sanjay Dutt). This is the story of Shamshera (Ranbir Kapoor), a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader, and then a legend for his tribe.
