Shamshera, Ranbir Kapoor’s comeback film, has received mixed reactions from critics and audiences. After a disappointing opening weekend, the YRF production continued to struggle even on its fourth day at the box office. With earnings said to have dropped by nearly 70% on Monday, the film is now being dubbed a complete disaster.
Shamshera made Rs 10.25 crore on its first day. It made Rs 11 crore on Day 3 after collecting Rs 10.50 crore on Day 2. According to trade reports, it failed to cross the Rs 3 crore mark on Day 4, leaving its total collection at Rs 34 crore. Many predict that its lifetime earnings will be approximately Rs 45 crore.
Ranbir Kapoor’s first film in four years is Shamshera. However, the period drama’s dismal reviews and box office performance have left it suffering. Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor both star in the Karan Malhotra-directed film.
Ranbir had previously told indianexpress.com that he was leaving behind his “young boy storylines” and coming-of-age flicks to play the iconic Hindi film hero in Shamshera. “I believe it was a logical progression.” I had to abandon roles that were familiar to me. I took on those tasks because I was of a certain age and had the opportunity to do so. But on the inside, I’ve always wanted to play the hero, and I don’t think I’ve ever done so. I’ve played relatable parts rather than ambitious ones. So when I was offered Shamshera, it was a no-brainer,’ Ranbir explained.
