Shamshera may have tanked at the box office, but it still remains a topic of discussion amongst the audience. And sadly, not for good reasons. While the cast and the makers of the film kept defending Shamshera’s plot till the end, the audience kept finding the fault in their ‘stars’. A new clip from the film is now going viral, and people are not happy with what they’ve just found out.
The climax of the film shows Vaani Kapoor fighting the bad men with a baby wrapped in her arms. The moment is supposed to be emotional, but many could not help but notice that the baby is not actually a toy, but just a mere cloth wrapped in cloth! Considering that the film was made on a hefty budget of Rs. 150 crores, fans wondered what could’ve led to the budget crunch that disallowed them from renting out a real baby.
Many fans expressed their outrage on Twitter, questioning what led to the major goof-up by YRF. Some quipped how low-budget movies and college-level dramas have easily afforded dummy babies, but Shamshera’s team was strangely unable to do the same. Interestingly, several suggestions were dropped on how the scene could have been played out in the film.
