Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt won many hearts with his role as the dangerous, ruthless antagonist in Yash starrer blockbuster KGF Chapter 2. The Munnabhai MBBS actor is all set to return with the character of Sher Singh – another notable antagonist in the much-awaited film. Shamshera. Sanjay Dutt will be seen sharing screen space with Ranbir Kapoor for the first time, and since RK plays Sanjay in his biopic ‘Sanju’, the actor said that it will be quite interesting for the audience to watch him as it will be ‘Sanju Vs. . Sanju.’
Sanjay recently shared that he was thrilled to learn about the casting coup in Shamshera that pitted him against Ranbir because four years ago (Ranbir’s last film), the young actor played the role of Sanju. He adds, “It is also quite interesting that I am pitted against Ranbir, who played me in Sanju. So, his and my on-screen enmity becomes even more interesting for people. Ranbir is a brilliant actor but This film sees him with a new look. His childish charm is incomparable, but in this film, he is a man who sets his feet and looks fabulous on screen.”
“Playing the antagonist is always exciting because you get to bend the rules, break the rules. I realized that when you play the antagonist, there are actually accusations or moral boundaries. You can be disruptive. You can take a character from paper and play it as you wish. I have a lot of fun when I play an antagonist and I am lucky that people have liked my performance as a hero till now,” he said.
Sanjay has won unanimous praise for his spine-chilling performance in Shamshera after the teaser of the film went viral. He says, “Shuddh Singh is a character you have never seen on screen. He is just pure evil. He is dangerous, he is unreliable and will go to any lengths to wreak havoc. I loved the fact that Karan Malhotra made a villain like this and he made me think of playing this role. He gave me all the freedom to bring Shuddh Singh to life and I hope people like my effort.
After Agneepath, Sanjay is again working with director Karan Malhotra. Sanjay gave us the villain for ages as Kancha in that film and he is hoping that the audience will give him the same love as Shuddh Singh in Shamshera.
He says, “Karan always makes a bigger-than-life villain. My character in Agneepath is Kancha and now as Shuddh Singh, he knows how to present an antagonist. Personally, I hope he continues to make more exciting villains for me. He is someone who has not left the commercial sphere of Indian cinema and I am sure he has created a winner with Shamshera.”
The story of Shamshera is set in the fictional town of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shuddh Singh. This is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader and then became a legend for his clan. He fights tirelessly for the freedom and honor of his clan. Her name is Shamshera.
The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the heart of India in the 1800s. This is a never seen before big promise from Ranbir Kapoor who plays the role of Shamshera in the film! Sanjay Dutt plays Ranbir’s arch-enemy in this massive casting coup and his showdown with Ranbir will be a sight to behold as they will go after each other brutally without any mercy.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, this action extravaganza is produced by Aditya Chopra and is slated to release on July 22, 2022 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
