What is the gravitational force on am object of mass m inside a spherical shell of mass M and radius R, at a distance of R/2 from the center

In Gravitation we have Shell theorem #2 that states that
" A uniformly dense spherical shell exerts no gravitational force on a particle located anywhere inside it "
As per this shell theorem, gravitational force of an object in side a shell at a distance of R/2 is zero.
