Sanjay Dutt Stands By Shamshera Against Hate Says ‘Kuch Toh Log Kahege’

Sanjay Dutt addressed hate and criticism Shamshera has received for performing low at box office

Shamshera starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Vaani Kapoor turned out to be a disaster at the box office. The period drama action film failed to connect with the audience. Sanjay Dutt who played Shuddh Singh in the movie spoke on the failure. He will stand by Shamshera after the poor performance at the box office. 

Shamshera was released on July 22 earning a low score. Days after the release Sanju took to his social media to address the hate the film has been receiving. He penned a long note supporting Ranbir Kapoor and director Karan Malhotra. Speaking on negative reviews and trolling Sanjay Dutt says Shamshera received hate from those who didn’t even watch it. He finds it horrible that people criticize instead of respecting the hard work. 

Sanjay wrote: “Films are acts of passion – passion to tell a story, to bring to loife characters you’ve never met before. Shamshera is one such labour of love to which we gave our all. It’s a movie made up of blood, sweat and tears. It’s a dream that we brought on screen. Movies are made for audiences to relish. And every movie finds its viewers, sooner or later. Shamshera found a lot of people hating on it; some of the hate came from people who didn’t even watch it. I find it horrible that people don’t respect the hard work we all put in.”

He added, “I admire Karan as a filmmaker and mostly as a person. He is one of the best directors I have worked with in my long career for four decades. He has the knack of giving characters that strike a chord. We did that with Agneepath, where he gave me Kancha Cheena to play. The process of working on it was brilliant. He trusted me again with Shamshera and what a ball of a time we had making this film and bringing to life Shuddh Singh.”

“Karan is like family and success or failure aside, it will always be an honour to work with him. I stand by him always. Shamshera will find its tribe someday but until it does, I stand to resolute with the film, the memories we created, the bond we shared, the laughs we had, the hardships we went through. I thank the whole unit – cast and crew of the film who stayed with the film for four years, through the pandemic, through my own personal rough times. Ranbir and I have forged a bond for life with this film. His craft and ability to depict emotionality on screen is par excellence. It pains to see how people are so eager to spew hatred on the work of one of the most hardworking and talented actors of our times. Art and our commitment for it transcends the hate coming our way. The love we feel for the film and its people goes beyond everything that’s being said.” 

He ended with a note – “Bahut kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna.” “#ShamsheraIsOurs.”
