As Ranbir Kapoor is promoting Shamshera, earlier he spoke about sharing screen space with Sanjay in the upcoming YRF film. The Wake Up Sid actor said, “It’s amazing that Sanjay Dutt is my antagonist! When I was 10 or 11, I had Sanjay Dutt’s poster in my cupboard. Then eventually getting to play him in a biopic directed by Rajkumar Hirani was a dream come true. And finally getting an opportunity to work with him, to act with him, where I am the protagonist and he is the antagonist, it’s incredible!”
Other than Sanjay and Ranbir, Shamshera also features, Vaani Kapoor, Ronit Roy, Saurabh Shukla and Ashutosh Rana. The period drama is set to release this weekend on July 22, 2022.
