Sanjay Dutt pens a hardhitting note on Shamshera being criticised

Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor starrer Shamshera was one of the most anticpated films. But the movie not only faced criticism but also failed to garner positive response at the box-office. Shamshera director Karan Malhotra finally stood in defence of his movie and penned a long note. He gave a shoutout to his team and expressed how proud he is of the period drama. Now actor Sanjay Dutt has also come out in support of Karan Malhotra and Shamshera.

Sanjay Dutt who has worked with Karan Malhotra in Agneepath penned a long note expressing his feelings. He also spoke about the bond he formed with Ranbir Kapoor and also slammed all those who were spewing hatred on his co-star.

Speaking about Shamshera, Sanjay Dutt wrote, “Films are acts of passion – passion to tell a story, to bring to life 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.”

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. 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 of four decades. He is like family and success or failure aside, it will always be an honour to work with him. I stand by him always.”
