Ranbir Kapoor is playing a larger than life quintessential Hindi film hero with the action entertainer Shamshera. Ranbir, who is coming to the big screen four years after he delivered the blockbuster Sanju, is pitted against Sanjay Dutt who is playing an evil, merciless, cold-hearted brute force of nature, Shuddh Singh. Sanjay Dutt vs Ranbir Kapoor is the clash of the year on the big screen. Ranbir and the team of Shamshera is releasing the title track of the film digitally today and the actor reveals that it gives him ‘goosebumps every single time’ he listens to it!
Ranbir says, “The title track of Shamshera gives me goosebumps every single time I listen to it. Sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Abhishek Nailwal, the title track is a tribute to the legend of Shamshera, a man who lived by principles, an idealist, a do-gooder who fights ferociously for his tribe. Sukhwinder and Abhishek have given their all for the title track and have delivered a powerful song that best suits the spirit of Shamshera, an equally powerful warlord, whose valour is legendary. Every time the track comes in the film, it is a celebration of guts and grit and I’m certain that people will love the song as much as I love it.”

Director Karan Malhotra says the title track is ‘the ultimate salute to the might of a warrior’ called Shamshera and adds that the video of the song will reveal some interesting moments from the film that haven't been revealed so far! He says, “The title track of Shamshera captures the soul of the film in the most glorious way. It has been getting incredible response ever since we released the audio jukebox and I have seen so many messages asking us to release the video of this track. Sukhwinder and Abhishek have delivered a song that celebrates the valour of Shamshera in its true essence. For me, the title track is the ultimate salute to the might of a warrior who only knows how to win. I hope people love the new glimpses from the film that we have to offer in the title track. ”
The story of Shamshera is set in the fictitious city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shuddh Singh, played by Sanjay Dutt. This is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader and then a legend for his tribe. He relentlessly fights for his tribe's freedom and dignity. His name is Shamshera.
The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the 1800s in the heartland of India. It has the big promise of a never seen before Ranbir Kapoor, who plays Shamshera in the film! Sanjay Dutt plays Ranbir’s arch-enemy in this huge casting coup and his showdown with Ranbir will be something to watch out for as they will ferociously go after each other with no mercy.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, this action extravaganza has been produced by Aditya Chopra and is set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22, 2022.
