Sanjay Dutt to share screen space with Kabir Bedi, Nafisa Ali in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster
A day prior to the release of Omung Kumar's revenge saga Bhoomi, his first film since release from Yerawada Jail last year, Sanjay Dutt will begin shooting for his next, Tigmanshu Dhulia's third installment of the crime drama franchise Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, on 21 September in Bikaner.
While it was earlier reported that Chitrangda Singh has been roped in to play Sanjay's love interest in the film, Pune Mirror now reports that veteran actors Kabir Bedi and Nafisa Ali have been signed as his parents. This will be the second instance when Kabir will play Sanjay's father as the duo also shared screen space in the late Feroz Khan's 1992 action film Yalgaar.
As far as Nafisa is concerned, her longtime due collaboration with Sanjay will finally fulfill the latter's late father and veteran actor Sunil Dutt's wish to see the two actors share the same frame. The same report states that Sunil wanted to cast Nafisa and Sanjay together in a film back in 1980 but Sanjay was busy shooting for his debut film Rocky then.
The same report states that Nafisa and Kabir will play members of the royal family and that the former seeks to embody her inspiration Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur into her role. She reveals in the same report that she knew the royal figure personally, through her husband and polo player Colonel RS 'Pickles' Sodhi.
The third installment of Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster will also star Mahie Gill and Jimmy Shergill, who will reprise their respective roles of Biwi and Saheb from the previous two installments of the successful franchise.
