Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, many films have had to skip on the theatrical release and take the OTT route. But looks like the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Shamshera director Karan Malhotra wants to go the traditional and ‘grand way’. Shamshera will not have an OTT release as the Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘deserves to be on the big screen’ said Malhotra in a statement.
According to a report by Mid-Day, Karan Malhotra said, “I have grown up on quintessential Hindi cinema and I wanted to create a true blue Hindi film that everyone can enjoy in theatres. I feel confident that we have achieved an entertainer that will appeal to everyone. We are all waiting eagerly for the COVID-19 situation to become better in our country and then plan the release of Shamshera in the grandest way possible.”
Karan also called Ranbir a ‘generation defining actor’ as he was all praise for his skill, he said, “Ranbir Kapoor is a generation defining actor and has given his best to Shamshera. Vaani Kapoor plays his strength and compliments him beautifully in the film. As far as Sanjay Dutt is concerned, you are in for a surprise.”
Pictures of Ranbir’s character from Shamshera had gone viral earlier. The movie has been shot in several locations including Ladakh. The film is produced by Yash Raj Films. Apart from Shamshera, Ranbir will also be seen in Brahmastra, in which he will star with Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan.
