Analysts believe that going by its declining footfall at theatres, Shamshera might not even cross the Rs 100 crore mark at the box office.
Shamshera is Ranbir Kapoor’s return to the big screen after four years. Directed by Karan Malhotra, the period drama also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor.
Defending Shamshera’s poor run at the box office, Dutt posted a note on Instagram. An excerpt from it read, “Movies are made for audiences to relish. And every movie finds its viewers, sooner or later. 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.”
