Ranbir Kapoor‘s Shamshera is one of the most anticipated movies of 2022. Directed by Karan Malhotra, Ranbir Kapoor starrer Shamshera is set in the 1800s. The film also stars Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. On Ranbir Kapoor’s 39th birthday last year, the makers released a teaser for his look in the film. The movie is slated to hit the theatres on March 18, 2022. But due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, there have been speculations that it might opt for the digital route for release.

In a recent interview with India Today, director Karan Malhotra said that it will be the call of his producer (Aditya Chopra). He said, “This is completely my producer’s (Aditya Chopra) jurisdiction, he is the most active producer I have ever worked with, in my life. He knows best and I have left it completely up to him. He is the expert and I enjoy my creative space as far as Shamshera is concerned.”

He added that he has made the film with all his sincerity and all the efforts and it has shaped out well. “Now everything is up to Adi. How he wants to place it, what his planning is, everything is in his hands. I have given my best as a director and now I have the country’s best producer who is nurturing it further. What else could I have asked for?,” he said further.

Karan hopes Shamshera releases soon and he is looking forward to it. “To be honest it’s too premature to say anything about Shamshera right now, because, currently, we are in a state when times are so vulnerable and unpredictable. We have not even ventured out into the PR zone of the film yet. But when the time is right we will talk about it for sure”, he said.

Apart from Shamshera, Ranbir also has Brahmastra with Alia Bhatt, Animal and Luv Ranjan’s untitled project in his kitty.
