Ranbir Kapoor dominates battlefields in the action-packed ‘Shamshera’ teaser

Yash Raj Films has dropped the teaser of Shamshera, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. The highly-anticipated period thriller is directed by Karan Malhotra and is set to hit the theatres on July 22, 2022. With the trailer set to release on June 24, here’s a peek at what we know so far.

With a punchy teaser featuring a series of gritty shots, Shamshera has established itself as a hair-raising thriller. The movie’s production began in 2018 and was riddled with pandemic-related delays until filming finally wrapped in September 2020. Helmed by Agneepath director Karan Malhotra, the entertainer will also see Befikre actress Vani Kapoor play the lead role while Sanjay Dutt dons the antagonist’s cape.

The minute-long official teaser sees Ranbir Kapoor charging several battlefields while brandishing weapons and mouthing gritty dialogues. This includes the tagline, ‘Karam se dakait, dharam se azaad,’ which loosely translates to ‘bandits by duty; freedom by faith.’

Reportedly, the film tells the tale of a dacoit warrior who stars out as a slave and eventually takes charge of his tribe, protecting them from the merciless British army. Facing off against him is the menacing and compelling general, played by Sanjay Dutt.
