The team of Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt’s Shamshera that had come under flak after the film’s box office failure within a week after its release, took to social media to put up a united stand in the past two days. After its director Karan Malhotra posted that he is standing hand in hand with the team and feeling proud about the film, Sanjay shared a heart-warming post backing the filmmaker for his commitment towards the movie.
After Karan said on Wednesday that he maintained a distance from the film as he couldn’t “handle the rage and hate” the past few days, Sanjay took to his social media page to say that he finds it “horrible” that people don’t respect the work that the team had put in.
“Shamshera found a lot of people hating on it; some of the hate came from people who didn’t even watch the film,” he wrote. The actor, who had earlier worked with Karan in Agneepath, also said that he admires the director as a filmmaker and a person, and thanked him for entrusting him with the character of Shudd Singh in the Ranbir, Vaani Kapoor-starrer.
Sanjay also further added that he believes that Shamshera will “find its tribe someday” and till then, he will stand with the film they have made and the memories it presented along the four-year journey.
The actor also had words of praise for its lead actor. “Ranbir and I have forged a bond for life with the film,” he said, adding that the Brahmastra actor’s ability to portray emotions is par excellence. Sanjay also said that he was hurt to see how people are eager to “spew hatred on the work of one of the most hardworking and talented actors”.
The veteran star, who was also part of Yash’s blockbuster KGF: Chapter 2 and Akshay Kumar’s box office dud Samrat Prithviraj, concluded the post by saying, “Art and our commitment for it transcends hate”.
