“I pray to God that it happens soon. This question should be asked to Raju (Rajkumar) Hirani. Like you even I am waiting for it to happen.”Sanjay Dutt
Following reports of sexual harassment against filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, rumour was that Munna Bhai 3 was on hold until the case is resolved or Hirani gets a clean chit.
Sanjay, accompanied by his wife Maanayata Dutt, was speaking to the media at the trailer launch of his first Marathi production Baba in Mumbai.
Baba co-producer Ashok Subhedar, director Raj R Gupta and film's cast Deepak Dobriyal, Nandita Patkar, Aryan Menghji, Chittranjan Giri, Spruha Joshi and Abhijeet Khandkekar were also present during the event.
When asked what kind of films he would like to do at this point in his career, Sanjay said, "Now, I can't dance around trees and do romance with girls but I will do some great characters like Mel Gibson and Denzel Washington do in Hollywood films."
When asked about the recreated version of his hit song "O Saki Saki" from Musafir, which features Nora Fatehi and appears in the upcoming John Abraham-starrer Batla House, Sanjay stated, "It's great that these songs are being recreated and it means that they are still popular. So, it's a good thing."
His Musafir co-star Koena Mitra had slammed the new version of the song, which originally featured her and Sanjay Dutt.
Sanjay Dutt will next be seen onscreen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat with Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon. He also had Shamshera with Ranbir Kapoor coming up next year.
