Set in the 1800s, the set for the shooting of the film had to be something like that. Hence, a massive fort was built at the Film City, Mumbai for the shooting of Ranbir Kapoor's Shamshera. The time taken by a team of 300 workers to build the fort was about two months. This is a really big milestone to be achieved by the makers.

Yash Raj Films announced the making of Sharmshera about four years back in May 2018. Ranbir Kapoor was announced to be the male lead of the film in a dual role in the film. The Principal Photography for the film kickstarted in December 2018. The shooting for the film wrapped up in September 2020. It took two years for the makers to wrap up the shoot of the film.

The makers found actress Vani Kapoor suitable as the female lead in the film. In the film, Vaani Kapoor was supposed to portray the character of an Indian dancer. Hence, to bring more reality to her performance as a dancer in the movie, she decided to get training. She decided to take professional training in Kathak.

Shamshera release date:

Even after the shoot wrapped up at the last of 2020, it takes a lot of time to edit the film. Earlier, the makers decided on the theatrical release of the movie on the 20th of December 2019. But the COVID cases started rising at that time. So the release was delayed. Later on, when the situation seemed normal, the makers announced the release of Shamshera on the 25th of June 2021. But destiny had some other plans. The second wave of COVID-19 hit the country badly. Hence the release date was pushed to the 18th of March 2022. But this was not enough yet. The omicron variant was spreading at a high rate. So the makers had to push the Shamshera release date yet again. And finally, the audience has got to watch the film in the theatres worldwide on the 22nd of July 2022.

The film has been released in theatres worldwide in multiple languages, including Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil, and in IMAX theatres.
