With the Supreme Court awarding a five-year sentence to Sanjay Dutt in the 1993 serial blasts case and giving him four weeks' time to surrender, the actor is in a race against time to try and complete all his films.
The actor, who made his debut as a hero in 1981’s semi-hit Rocky , had quite a few potential blockbuster films in the pipeline.
Here are some of them:
There’s the Karan Johar-produced Unglee , directed by Rensil d'Silva, which is slated to come out this year.The film,which is still being scripted, marks Emraan Hashmi’s first collaboration with Johar and has a social message.
Trading action for political satire, Dutt was to unite with Aamir Khan for the first time ever to play a “vital” supporting role (as a Rajasthani villager, if the rumour mill is to be believed) in this film which comes out next year..
Dutt was to essay the vital role of former gambling den owner Sher Jhan in Apoorva Lakhia’s big budget remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s 1973 classic cop film.This movie, for which Priyanka Chopra has pocketed Rs 9 crore might see a replacement for the embattled actor.
Just 12 to 15 days of shooting is left, said Producer TP Aggarwal of this remake of the Tamil film Saamy . Chances are, this one will get wrapped up with Dutt, of course, playing the lawman.
Munnabhai Chale Delhi
Subhash Kapoor's (or is it Rajkumar Hirani; we don't know yet) might just have to wait longer to add a new installment to the much-loved Munnabhai duology.
"I can't imagine Munna Bhai series without Sanjay Dutt. But unfortunately, things are not in our hands," Kapoor told IANS on Thursday
