"I think you have to be a great professional, because in spite of being under so much of stress, Sanju still came and worked on the sets," says Indra Kumar, director of Dhamaal, one of the Sanjay Dutt's movies that is completed and ready for release. If you recall, after being acquitted by the TADA court for terrorism charges seven months ago, Dutt resumed work on Dhamaal within a day of the court's judgment and it will be the first movie to be released after he was sentenced for a six year rigorous imprisonment under Arms Acts recently.
"My film was a comedy and it was all the more difficult because the kind of pressure he was undergoing, it's hard to do comedy scenes as somewhere in the back of the mind the danger is lurking. I am really grateful to him and also have great admiration for him. I'm grateful he completed the film and not only completed but also did a great job. You'll agree when you'll see the film," Kumar added.
Dhamaal is a comedy about four men Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Riteish Deshmukh and Ashish Choudhary and their encounters with inspector played by Sanjay Dutt. The music is by Adnan Sami and the film releases on September 7th. Indra Kumar's last film Pyare Mohan didn't hit the bull's eye. Will Dhamaal, a 2 hour 12 minute film, bring him back in the big league?
