Sanjay Dutt's political career may be seeing an upswing in the current season but his Bollywood journey hasn't come to a halt. Come May-June timeframe and his action comedy Chatur Singh Two Stars would be ready for release.
Major part of the film's shoot has already been wrapped up in a single schedule held in Cape Town and only a couple of songs are left to be picturised. Confirms Ajay Chandok, director of Chatur Singh Two Stars, who has earlier worked with Sanjay Dutt in Nehlle Pe Dehlla, "The film has been shot at a very large scale. 90% of the film's shoot is already through. I am surprised though that some people still think that a large chunk of the film remains to be shot."
He adds in a bemused tone, "Maybe they are not yet ready to believe that in our single schedule stay in Cape Town, we had completed the entire talkie portion of the film. Now we are just left to shoot two songs for the film."
Why did the crew come back from the shoot for just two songs? Wouldn't it have been a good idea to stay on for some more days and wrap up the film? "The song's situation required a mix of Indian and foreigner dancers", Ajay goes on to explain, "There are around 40-50 dancers needed for the song picturisation and it didn't make sense to fly dozens of dancers from India. Instead, we thought of doing the shooting in Mumbai itself. In any case, foreigner dancers are easily available here."
The songs, which are sung by Sanjay Dutt himself with music by Sajid-Wajid, are said to be the highlight of the film. Due to this, no expense would be spared to give them a grandeur look and mass appealing.
"Sanjay Dutt would be back in a massy role after quite some time. Audience will love his character in Chatur Singh Two Stars and we are going to make sure that the film reaches out to its target audience. We should be shooting the songs either this month or in March."
The makers aren't in any hurry to release the film though. "We should be arriving this summer. It is going to be a May-June release", Ajay divulges.
Starring Amisha Patel as the leading lady opposite Sanjay Dutt, Chatur Singh Two Star also stars Gulshan Grover, Anupam Kher, Satish Kaushik and Suresh Menon in principal roles. The film is produced by Mohamed Aslam.
