He says his character Shudh Singh is a role that has never been seen on screen.

He says, “It’s also quite interesting that I’m pitted against Ranbir, who played me in Sanju. So the on-screen feud between him and me becomes all the more interesting for people. Ranbir is a brilliant actor but this film sees him in a new light. His boyish charm is inimitable, but in this film he is a man who finds his place and looks glorious on screen.”

Sanjay collaborates again with director Karan Malhotra after Agneepath. Sanjay had given us a villain for the ages as Kancha in this movie and he hopes audiences shower him with similar love to Shudh Singh in Shamshera.

He says, “Karan always creates a larger than life villain. Whether it’s my character Kancha in Agneepath and now as Shuddh Singh, he knows how to present an antagonist. Personally, I hope he continues to create villains more exciting for me. He is someone who has not left the commercial zone of Indian cinema and I am convinced that with Shamshera he has cooked up a winner.”
