Shamshera Box Office Collection Day 13: Ranbir Kapoor Film Shutdown

Shamshera hit theaters on July 22.


  • Shamshera was released on July 22.
  • The film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Vaani Kapoor.
  • It is directed by Karan Malhotra.

Ranbir Kapoor’s return to the big screen was supposed to be a smash hit. The actor returned to film after four years with Shamshera, which hit theaters on July 22. Ranbir plays a dual role in this action drama about an enslaved tribe fighting for freedom. Also starring Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor, Shamshera struggles to survive in theaters. The film was released with a low opening and its numbers continue to disappoint every day.


Shamshera is a box office flop. The movie had only earned Rs 0.7 crore at the box office on day 12. And on day 13, it barely managed to hit any money. This is Ranbir Kapoor’s 7th film flop. In 13 days, Shamshera has not even crossed the Rs 50 crore mark. Ranbir Kapoor’s star receives competition from Ek Villian Returns. It will soon be wiped out in theaters with new releases like Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan.


Shamshera’s storyline follows the character of Ranbir Kapoor opposed to the character of Sanjay Dutt. The latter plays the role of an evil, ruthless and cold-hearted man named Shuddh Singh. The film is set in the fictional city of Kaza in 1800, where a tribe of warriors are imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shuddh Singh. The story centers on a slave who becomes a leader and then a legend for his tribe. He fights tirelessly for the freedom and dignity of his tribe. Shamshera also stars Ronit Roy, Saurabh Shukla and Ashutosh Rana in key roles.
