Alia’s picture received more than one lakh ‘likes’ in less than ten minutes. Her mom Soni Razdan commented on her post, “What a dhamakedaar film. Don’t miss it.”

Shamshera is directed by Karan Malhotra and also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor. It is set in the fictitious city of Kaza, where a warrior tribe is imprisoned, enslaved and tortured by a ruthless authoritarian general Shudh Singh (Sanjay). The story follows a man (Ranbir) transformed from a slave to a leader, and who fights for his tribe’s freedom and dignity. Ranbir has a dual role in the film, of Shamshera and of his son Balli.

On playing both father and son in Shamshera, Ranbir had said on RJ Stutee’s chat show Aur Batao, “While doing the film, it was extremely hard. On many days, I would just sit on a chair, looking at myself in the mirror, I had given up and say ‘I can’t do it’. I would talk to Alia about it, and say, ‘don’t talk to me, I am empty.’”

Alia and Ranbir tied the knot in April and are currently expecting their first child. Alia announced her pregnancy on Instagram last month. She recently flew back home after wrapping up the shoot of her Hollywood debut, Heart of Stone. Since then, she has been wrapping up work on Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
