Sanjay Dutt backs out of Total Dhamaal due to adult comedy, unavailibility of dates
Actor Sanjay Dutt quits the Dhamaal franchise; backs out of Total Dhamaal.
Mumbai: Actor Sanjay Dutt has pulled out of Total Dhamaal due to unavailability of dates as well as his issue with the film's adult comedy, says a source.
The actor, who completed shooting for Bhoomi earlier this year after his incarceration in Yerwada Jail for illegal possession of arms, has his dates locked till the end of 2018.
He has films like Torbaaz, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and a collaborative project with actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn.
Sanjay, who played a crucial role in Dhamaal and Double Dhamaal, has decided to quit Indra Kumar's Dhamaal franchise.
The third instalment, Total Dhamaal, was expected to roll out this year, but the fact that Sanjay is unavailable has caused the film some delay.
A source close to the development stated that Sanjay's busy schedule and already locked dates is not the only reason why he won't be doing the film.
"Besides the issue of unavailability of dates, Sanjay was not okay with the film's adult comedy. He doesn't want his children to see him in a film that has innuendo-laden jokes or crass humour," the source stated.
Sanjay has three children -- daughters Trishala and Iqra, and son Shahraan.
