Karan Johar is highly impressed by Sanjay Dutt
Who will not agree that pleasing Karan Johar is no easy thing especially when it comes to work. The star producer is so particular about small things that matching up to his expectations is no cake walk by any stretch of imagination.
Karan Johar chooses his actors carefully. If a star has done him a good turn, he makes sure that he is repaid in every possible way. Sanjay Dutt, it seems, has become quite a favourite with KJo after his stellar performance as Kancha Cheena in ‘Agneepath’, 2012’s first big hit. Sanjay Dutt's stupendous performance as Kancha cheena has earned him standing ovation and filmmaker Karan Johar was very much impressed with his acting.
Now, Sanjay has been offered the role of an investigative cop in Dharma Productions’ next film to be directed by Rensil D’Silva who earlier made ‘Kurbaan’. Incidentally, Anil Kapoor had been signed on to play this role.
According to reports, Sanjay heard the script last week and agreed to do it not only because he liked his role but also because he couldn’t say no to Karan. Anil, sources say, had been roped but he opted out because he felt it was a repetitive role. He is playing a policeman in Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Shootout at Wadala’. The buzz though is that the actor found his role wasn’t substantial enough, especially when compared to Emraan Hashmi's in the film which is about a cop hunting down Emraan and his gang.
Rensil D'Silva, who urgently needed a 40-plus superstar, personally requested KJo to step in and bail him out of the tight spot. That’s when Karan approached Dutt, who immediately said yes.
