Since Sanjay Dutt has been given the three years jail sentence, almost every Bollywood actor is praying for him except maybe Nana Patekar who has went on to say that he won’t work with Sanju Baba again, which you can read here.
But it is Amitabh Bachchan, Vidya Balan and Jackie Shroff who have gone the extra mile to support Sanjay Dutt in this tough phase.
Amitabh Bachchan along with Vidya and Jackie is making cameo appearances in Sanjay Dutt’s production `Hasmukh Pighal Gaya`, DNA reported.
This romantic comedy which features Dutt’s niece Nazia Hussain and legendary filmmaker O.P Ralhan’s grandson Armaan in the lead will have cameo appearences of Big B, Vidya Balan and Jackie Shroff. This has been confirmed by choreographer Ahmed Khan.
“We are all with Sanju Baba. The show must and will go on. We’re currently shooting this film. Amitji and Vidya have solid cameo roles in the film. Sanju Baba and Jackie will also be making an appearance,” Khan said.
The whole idea behind the film, being directed by Sejal Shah, is to keep Sanjay Dutt Productions operational in Dutt’s absence.
“Baba is committed to completing his work for other productions before he makes time for his own film,” Khan added.
If one recalls, Sanjay Dutt was first arrested under TADA in 1993 three weeks before Subhash Ghai’s Khalnayak was to release. Imprisoned on and off for the next four years, Sanjay Dutt lost out on several films.
This time, however the scenario has changed. The actor faces a long haul in prison, he is no longer young and Bollywood has changed. Though film-makers have shown solidarity with Sanjay Dutt and are confident that the impending imprisonment will not make a dent in his career or affect his popularity, we hope everything gets back to normal for Sanju Baba!
