Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaars 2 was meant to star Sanjay Dutt

Son Of Sardaars 2, which is based on the ‘Battle Of Saragarhi’, was originally supposed to be made with Sanjay Dutt in the lead.

Now that Dutt is incarcerated, the huge historic project has passed on to Dutt’s buddy Ajay Devgn.

Says a source, “It was originally supposed to be produced by Sanjay Dutt‘s buddy Bunty Walia and directed by Rohit Jugraj, who, Sanjay Dutt felt, was the right person for a war epic. But then, Dutt went to jail and was out of the project. Rather than wait for Dutt’s release, it was felt that Devgn was the right person to play the part.”

Apparently, the role requires the protagonist to be fighting-fit. “It would’ve taken Sanjay Dutt months and months of physical training to get into shape for this role. It was therefore felt it was better to replace Dutt with Devgn,” says the source.
