Sanjay Dutt has delivered some of the most epic villains on screen and he is back to give us a more evil, menacing, merciless, cold-hearted brute force of nature, Shudh Singh in Shamshera. Sanjay plays Ranbir Kapoor’s nemesis in this action entertainer and he has relished every bit of his villainous turn!

Shamshera First Look: Sanjay Dutt flaunts his evil smile in intriguing poster of menacing Daroga Shuddh Singh

Sanjay says, “It is always exciting to play the antagonist because you get to bend the rules, break the rules. I realised that when you play the antagonist, there are actually impositions or moral boundaries. You can be disruptive. You can take a character from paper and play it the way you want to. I have a lot of fun when I play an antagonist and I’m fortunate that people have loved my performances as the nemesis of a hero so far.”

Sanjay has won unanimous praise for his spine-chilling act in Shamshera after the teaser of the film went viral! He says, “Shudh Singh is a character that you have never seen on screen. He is just pure evil. He is menacing, he is untrustworthy and he will go to any length to wreak havoc. I loved the fact that Karan Malhotra created a villain like this and he thought of me to play this role. He gave me a free hand to bring Shudh Singh to life and I hope people like my effort.”

Sanjay was thrilled to know about the casting coup in Shamshera that pitted him against Ranbir because four years back (Ranbir’s last film), the young actor had played Sanju! So, Shamshera will be Sanju vs Sanju on screen which has become a highly anticipated on-screen clash between the two! He says, “It is also quite interesting that I’m pitted against Ranbir, who played me in Sanju. So, the on-screen enmity between him and me becomes all the more interesting for people. Ranbir is a brilliant actor but this film sees him through a new gaze. His boyish charm is inimitable, but in this film, he is a man who finds his footing and looks glorious on screen.”

Sanjay is collaborating with director Karan Malhotra again after Agneepath. Sanjay had given us a villain for the ages as Kancha in that film and he is hoping that audiences will shower him with similar love as Shudh Singh in Shamshera.

He says, “Karan always creates a larger-than-life villain. Be it my character Kancha in Agneepath and now as Shuddh Singh, he knows how to present an antagonist. Personally, I hope he keeps creating more exciting villains for me. He’s someone who hasn’t left the commercial zone of Indian cinema and I have full faith that with Shamshera he has whipped up a winner.”

The story of Shamshera is set in the fictitious city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shudh Singh. This is the story of a man who became a slave, a slave who became a leader, and then a legend for his tribe. He relentlessly fights for his tribe’s freedom and dignity. His name is Shamshera.

The high-octane, adrenaline-pumping entertainer is set in the 1800s in the heartland of India. It has the big promise of a never-seen-before Ranbir Kapoor, who plays Shamshera in the film! Sanjay Dutt plays Ranbir’s arch-enemy in this huge casting coup and his showdown with Ranbir will be something to watch out for as they will ferociously go after each other with no mercy.

Directed by Karan Malhotra, this action extravaganza has been produced by Aditya Chopra and is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on July 22, 2022.

“We do not have Elvis without Black music” – says Austin Butler about King of Rock & Roll : Bollywood News

“We do not have Elvis without Black music” – says Austin Butler about King of Rock & Roll : Bollywood News

[ad_1]

Elvis is all set to take the theatres by storm! The upcoming Warner Bros. film, starring Austin Bulter in titular role of Elvis Presley and Olivia DeJonge essaying the role of Priscilla Presley, is helmed by the ace filmmaker Baz Luhrmann. Butler emulates Elvis Presley to the T & for the role, he underwent a lot of preparation.

“We do not have Elvis without Black music” – says Austin Butler about King of Rock & Roll

At the press conference of Elvis, attended by Bollywood Hungama, Austin Butler spoke about capturing the essence and characteristics of Elvis Presley. He also said that paying ode to Black musicians was of utmost importance. “The fact that we do not have Elvis without Black music, and giving credit where credit is due,” said  Austin Butler. “The narrative has been told in so many different ways, and I’m just so proud of the fact that we get to be a part of this film. Sister Rosetta [Tharpe] was inventing rock and roll in the 40s.”

For the role, he was trained well for couple of years and has a movement coach, a dialect coach, a singing coach and a karate instructor. He felt immense pressure to play King of Rock & Roll and underwent two years of prep for the same.  “I had those two years where I really didn’t do anything else but just obsess. I just tried to be as meticulous as possible, but at the end of the day, it’s all about finding his humanity, because what I was most fascinated by was stripping away the icon, stripping away the caricatures or the Halloween costume of Elvis and getting down to who was he in an empty room by himself at the end of the day? How did he wake up in the morning? You know, what was his inner life?” said Butler.  “And he’s an incredibly sensitive, spiritual man so it was just finding how he evolved over the years. That was sort of my process.”

Austin Butler also had several recordings to prep and how Elvis’ voice changed over the years as he grew mature with his music. Trying to capture the essence but not make a caricature is what Butler focused on.  “I was struck by how his voice changes over the years. You listen to an interview in ‘54 or ‘55, 56 and then another one in 62, he sounds totally different. And then you hear him in ‘72 and he sounds different from that. And then 77, he sounds different. You got all these different voices so I would spend a day sort of living in one of them. I think because there have been so many caricatures of him that for me, I really doubled down on making it feel like this was my life, that that I’m seeing from inside of him, and not falling into any of these traps because it’s really hard not to because we all have this idea of what he sounds like,” explained Butler.

Austin Butler also mentioned how recording gospel music, which was in the movie also, was life altering moment. “I think there were about 30 of the most incredible gospel singers I’ve ever heard in my life. And I remember the first person starting to sing, and I got chills. And then as the voices came together, tears came out of my eyes,” said Butler. “And then everybody’s stomping their feet, and suddenly I start feeling. I’m standing – they let me stand in the centre – and I’m stomping my feet, and I felt that moment that little Elvis had. I was just, raptured.”

Elvis will span the star’s life and career and explore the difficult relationship between Presley and his tyrannical manager Colonel Tom Parker, played by Tom Hanks. The studio described the film as one that will “delve into their complex dynamic spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and the loss of innocence in America.” The upcoming biopic will be released in theaters on June 24.
