The film ‘Shamshera,’ starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Vaani Kapoor, barely increased its box office receipts from Friday to Saturday. On its first day, the film grossed over Rs 10 crore in the Hindi belt, but its performance in Telugu and Tamil was pretty poor.
The period drama ‘Shamshera,’ starring Ranbir Kapoor, was released amid high anticipation, but it appears there are few takers. After earning Rs 10 crore on its opening day, the film’s Saturday box office performance was flat.
After a four-year absence, Ranbir returned to the big screen with ‘Shamshera’; his previous film was ‘Sanju’ (2018). According to box office India, this action comedy gained Rs 10 crore to its total on its second release day. The picture has failed to attract a significant audience at cinemas and mass-market theaters. ‘Shamshera’ has grossed a sum of Rs 20 crore (net), which is low for a film of this magnitude. For the film’s box office performance to be sustainable during the upcoming week, it will require a good Sunday performance. Surprisingly, Ranbir’s “Shamshera” has made less on day two than Alia Bhatt’s “Gangubai Kathiwadi.” While RK contributed 10 crores to the total on day two, Alia’s flick made 12.50 crore. According to Boxofficeindia, “Shamshera’s” recovery from non-theatrical business is over Rs 150 crore, preventing the picture from incurring a significant financial loss.
Sanjay Dutt kept filming on the set of ‘Shamshera’ despite his cancer diagnosis, without informing anyone of his condition. Director Karan Malhotra had stated to PTI, “The news that Sanjay sir had developed cancer came as a big shock to all of us. We were unaware of it. He spoke, acted, and worked as though nothing had occurred. I suppose this is why he is where he is today, having also overcome this obstacle. Sanjay sir does not allow anything to overcome him. He is an inspiration for everyone on the set.”
During an interview, the actor said he was blown away by the movie’s script. He stated that the writing was as good as Barfi or Sanju. The film also features one of the most versatile Hindi cinema artists, Sanjay Dutt. They recently made headlines for his role as the villain Adheera in KGF: Chapter 2. Additionally, the actor portrays the antagonist Daroga Shuddh Singh. In addition, Sanjay Dut and the director reconciled after a nearly decade-long separation. Their latest collaboration was the 2012 film Agneepath, in which Sanjay Dutt set a new standard for a villain.
