The reunion will happen after four years when they last came together as Bigg Boss co-hosts
It will be a casting coup if Salman Khanmanages to get Sanjay Dutt to play an important part in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan. There is strong buzz in the Yashraj corridors that Salman has requestedAditya Chopra to approach Dutt to play the role of a mentor in the film. Sanju is currently serving sentence in Yerwada jail in Pune and is expected to be out in Februrary 2016, when the film will be in the middle of their first schedule.
A source reveals, “Salman is quite keen on getting Sanju for Sultan. He thinks that Sanju will be great in the role and they will have fun while shooting. Also, Dutt, who has been away is raring to go and wants to jump into work as soon as he is released. The talks are its early stages as Adi also needs to figure out if there will be any legal hassle during the making of the film, and also if his release is delayed for some reason.”
The last time Salman and Sanju worked together on the big screen was in Chal Mere Bhai(2000). After that they came together as co-hosts for the fifth season of Bigg Boss in 2011.
Sanjay listened to many scripts when he was out last time on furlough and has committed to doing three of them.
