While all eyes are on how Sanjay Dutt completes Policegiri in limited time available for him, for his numerous fans there is another film which is all set to release much earlier. Titled Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke, the film features Dutt in a prominent and would be released next month, a good three weeks before Policegiri.
“Dutt has signed this film many years ago. Though the film features youngsters Dev Goel and Adah Sharma in lead roles, Dutt agreed to do the film due to his long standing relationship with Jyotin Goel, who is Dev’s dad”, informs a source.
In fact Dutt and Goel have known each other for more than 25 years. After working in his debut film Inam Dus Hazar (1987), Dutt went on to do Zahreelay as well as Safari with him. A decade later when Jyotin decided to launch his son Dev, Dutt was happy to be a part of the film.
“Though Dutt had finished all work more than a year ago, the film was kept on hold as the makers wanted the right release date. The fact that it is arriving next month has nothing to do with current situation that Dutt is finding himself in. Goels had locked the arrival of Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke many weeks ago and it is just unfortunate that Dutt won’t be around to watch it in theatres”, the source adds.
The promo of the film has been released and it is clear that makers haven’t even tried to cash in on Dutt being in news. Instead, the approach which has been taken is pretty well balanced where it is quite apparent that the film features youngsters in the lead with Dutt lending a strong supporting hand.
An insider adds, “Yes, the film would be Sanjay Dutt’s first release after he goes to jail, just like it was when his Khalnayak had released after his arrest. However this isn’t a pitch that the makers of Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke want to take. That would be unfair on their relationship as well as the film.”
Right thinking this one!
