With Sanjay Dutt cramming in all his signed projects before surrendering himself to the high court, apparently, filmmaker Rajkumar Gupta has decided to drop Dutt’s special appearance in his upcoming film ‘Ghanchakkar’.
“It is true that I have scrapped the scene that would have featured in ‘Ghanchakkar’. The scene couldhave only been possible with him, but I realised that we cannot shoot it right now,” Hindustan Times reports the director stating.
With Dutt being charged for possessing illegal weapons during the 1993 Mumbai attacks, he has until 18th May to surrender himself. It was recently reported that whilst trying to finish all his projects until that time, some of Dutt’s co-stars have reportedly deceived him in saying he’s not doing any work.
However in this case, it seems that the actor and director simply do not have the time to do the special apperance scene, due to Dutt’s busy schedule. Gupta goes onto add, “Without him the scene did not make sense as it would have had Sanjay playing himself. It was a very situational scene. However, it won’t be in my movie anymore.”
Starring Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi, ‘Ghanchakkar’ is set to release on 28th June.
