Sanjay Dutt to feature in six films in next two years, including Kalank, Panipat, Tulsi Das, Prassthanam
With Kalank, Shamshera, Sadak 2 and other projects, Sanjay Dutt seems to be reviving the 90s Bollywood custom of doing several films a year
Sanjay Dutt's presence on the silver screen in the upcoming years may be one of significance. If reports are to be believed, the actor is associated with as many as six films in the next two years. Dutt has already completed shooting for three films in November — Kalank, Tulsi Das and Prassthanam. The actor has also finished his look test for Shamshera, and will now reportedly begin shooting for three films back to back.
A source states that while the first schedule of Shamshera will continue till February 2019 at Film City, Dutt wrapped his portions two weeks ago. Following this, Sanjay moved on to Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat which went on floors on 10 December. Panipat's shooting schedule is to continue till March 2019 and Dutt will reportedly undergo a makeover for the second schedule of the film.
After working on both these period dramas, Dutt will move on to Mahesh Bhatt's directorial Sadak 2 which also features Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja and Alia Bhatt. The source added that Sadak 2 will be shot in a start-to-finish manner. Sanjay will also make time to promote Abhishek Varman's Kalank in March.
While the custom of making several films in a year was typical of the 80s and 90s in Bollywood, the recent era brought in fewer films of stars in a year. With a plethora of upcoming projects, Dutt seems to be reviving the age-old traditions.
