Sanjay Dutt starred in Mahesh Bhatt's directorial 'Naam' in the year 1986 and three decades later, the film-maker has decided to bring out a sequel starring his daughter Alia Bhatt as the lead actress and this time there's a twist in the cast as Sanjay Dutt might play the role of Alia Bhatt's father in the upcoming franchise.
It is reported that Mahesh Bhatt contacted Sanjay Dutt regarding the movie and the actor has already given his nod to star in the film. Apparently, Sanjay recently met with Mahesh and the duo had a long conversation about the sequel as well. We'll now have to wait and watch for an official confirmation about the same.
Going back down memory lane about Naam, Mahesh Bhatt had told TOI earlier, "Even though it was a two-hero project, Rajendra Kumar knew that the audience's sympathies would eventually swing from Kumar Gaurav's character Ravi to Sanju's bad boy Vicky." He also remembered Sanjay Dutt's role in the film and said,
"I never saw that kind of focus in Sanju again. With his stunning performance , he broke people's heart. We became a lifelong friend and years later, on the eve of his departure to the Yerwada Jail, I remember sitting with him and feeling as helpless as Kumar Gaurav's character in Naam because there was so little that I could do for him."
