Karan Malhotra made his directorial debut in 2012 with the action film Agneepath, starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, and Rishi Kapoor. In Shamshera, a decade later, he is collaborating with Ranbir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor’s son. He is the only director to have collaborated with the father and son son duo in different movies.

Karan says, “I feel very fortunate because working with Rishi Kapoor was a magical experience. I miss him even today. He was not just an actor but a collaborator of different kind. We had arguments, discussions and fights everyday on set. We would even challenge each others thought process. He never treated me like a first time director but an equal. I miss the madness on set with him every single day.”

“Ranbir and Chintu uncle are very different but their work ethics are similar. They both surrender to the vision of the director,” he adds. Rishi Kapoor had always been vocal about his wish to see Ranbir do some commercial films, as his son always preferred to experiment in the early days of his career. Did Karan discuss the idea of Shamshera with Rishi Kapoor? “I didn’t have a conversation with Chintu uncle, but I directly offered Shamshera to Ranbir. I still remember, 5 minutes into the narration and Ranbir was on board.”

He reveals, “Having said that, when Ranbir came on board the film, Chintu uncle called me and congratulated saying that this would be a fun experience. I really wish he was there today to see Ranbir as Shamshera. Chintu uncle always wanted Ranbir to do larger than life and mass films. Shamshera in that sense is Ranbir’s first what we call Hindi cinema film.”
