Thanedaar Returns is Sanjay Dutt‘s third cop role in a year. After Ram Gopal Varma’s Department and the forthcoming Zilla Ghaziabad, Dutt will again be shown as a cop.
But producer Aggarwal is unperturbed, “If you’ve seen the original film Saamy (2003 Tamil film directed by Hari starring Vikram and Trisha) you’d know this is a cop film unlike any other.”
However, Vinod Bachchan the producer of Zilla Ghaziabad doesn’t think so. In a panic mode on hearing about yet another cop film, Bachchan apparently got in touch with Sanjay Dutt requesting that his film be completed at the earliest.
Says a source close to Bachchan, “Dutt has finally agreed to give Bachchan the dates required to complete Zilla Ghaziabad. However, the extra action scenes that Dutt wanted to shoot to give the film an extra punch have been scrapped. Dutt has no time to shoot the extra action scenes that he originally wanted to. Only one vital scene featuring Dutt with Ravi Kishan will be shot. Then, thinks Dutt, the film is complete.”
According to the source close to Bachchan, the actor has moved on and just wants to complete Zilla Ghaziabad as quickly as possible.
“That’s exactly how the producer Vinod Bachchan also feels,” says his friend.
