Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is likely to make a special appearance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.
If reports are to be believed, Sanjay Dutt recently went on the sets of the film to meet Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The National Award-winning filmmaker was shooting a crucial sequence featuring Deepika Padukoneand Shahid Kapoor, so the 57-year-old actor patiently waited and watched the shot.
After the sequence was completely filmed, Bhansali called for two chairs and the veteran filmmaker and ‘Munna Bhai’ actor chatted in a far corner for close to an hour.
According to source “We did not know Sanju baba was going to turn up on the Padmavati set that day. Watching the two talk for such a long time without anyone else’s presence made everyone wonder if Bhansali sir was going to re-start his Khalnayak remake. Everybody knows that SLB wanted Sanju to reprise his role of Ballu Balram from the original Subhash Ghai film. But we’ve been told that the two were actually discussing Padmavati at length. The actor is expected to join the ensemble cast and is rumoured to start shooting for a special appearance.”
Although an official confirmation on the same is yet to be made.
‘Padmavati’ is slated to release on 17 November 2017.
