It's Shamshera box office day, and for all Ranbir Kapoor fans out there, it's arguably the longest night. When your favorite actor returns to the big screen after a four-year absence, the night before his or her next film's debut might be a true test not just for him but also for the fans.
Apart from the fact that it was a 'Ranbir Kapoor picture,' Ranbir's previous film was something of an exception. Sanju did make a record-breaking ₹34 crores on day one, and he went on to make history for Ranbir. Shamshera goes off on a completely separate tangent.
Shamshera was announced by Yash Raj Films a month before Ranbir Kapoor's smash hit Sanju in 2018. So, like Ranbir, this film has taken a four-year journey to be transformed into images for the big screen. It's coming out during the 'Boycott Bollywood' campaign, which shouldn't matter too much if the film is decent.
