Sanjay Dutt who is currently shooting for the 3rd installment of Saheb Biwi Gangster refutes rumors of him being a part of Good Maharaja.
There were reports doing the round on how the actor will be portraying the character of the late Maharaja of Jamnagar Jam Sahib Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji titled The Good Maharaja.
However, all these speculations are baseless and the actor isn’t going to be a part of the film.
Even the image that was released of Sanjay as Maharaja has been photoshopped to give a visual representation of the character which only conveys that the actor never shot for it.
There has been no confirmation from the actor’s end of doing the film. According to an early report posted on Bollywoodlife, a statement from the makers reveal, “Omung Kumar has been working on this script for a year-and-a-half and he has even put together a book on it. Sandeep Singh and the team have done a look test as well with Sanjay Dutt. They, in fact, met Polish government officials last year to work out shooting permissions.” Talking about the look Omung said, “We have photographs of the Maharaja for reference. We will take certain creative liberties but are trying to keep things as authentic as possible. Sanjay looks regal and it was his idea to do this role and I wanted to direct it because it’s a superb story.”
Sanjay already has a lineup of films that he has committed to which includes, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, Torbaaz, Nishikanth Kamath’s untitled and the third franchise of the Munnabhai series. The actor is balancing off his professional and personal life very well.
