After a powerful teaser, Yash Raj Films have now unveiled the first look of the evil, merciless Daroga Shuddh Singh, played by Sanjay Dutt. The latter who impressed fans with his last release KGF Chapter 2 is back to wreck havoc in the leading hero’s life and take the story of the film forward. The film also stars Ranbir Kapoor in the titular role, and Vaani Kapoor in the lead.
Talking about his role Dutt said, “It is always exciting to play the antagonist because you get to bend the rules, break the rules. I realised that when you play the antagonist, there are actually impositions or moral boundaries. You can be disruptive. You can take a character from paper and play it the way you want to. I have a lot of fun when I play an antagonist and I’m fortunate that people have loved my performances as the nemesis of a hero so far.”
Sanjay added, “Shudh Singh is a character that you have never seen on screen. He is just pure evil. He is menacing, he is untrustworthy and he will go to any length to wreak havoc. I loved the fact that Karan Malhotra created a villain like this and he thought of me to play this role. He gave me a free hand to bring Shudh Singh to life and I hope people like my effort.”
Shamshera is a Karan Malhotra directorial and has been produced by Aditya Chopra. It will release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on July 22, 2022.
