Actors Ranbir Kapoor-Sanjay-Dutt-Vaani Kapoor starrer Shamshera’s shoot has been postponed due to coronavirus scare in the country. The shoot which was set to kickstart from August 1, will now tentatively begin on August 15. The makers want to wait for more 15 days before starting off with the shoot.
Confirming the delay, Ashok Dubey (General Secretary, FWICE) told us, “Yes, there has been a delay by a fortnight as far as ‘Shamshera’ is concerned. The shoot for its remaining portions will now begin around August 15.”Set in the 1800s, ‘Shamshera’ is about a dacoit tribe who took charge to fight for their rights and independence against the British.
