In a recent interview, actor Ranbir Kapoor talked about the film and said, “Shamshera is not a story of a daaku, it is a film based in the 1800s; it is about a dacoit tribe that is fighting for its rights and independence from the British. Shamshera is in the aspirational space – true, badass commercial cinema.”
