Will not do films as favour to anyone from now: Sanjay Dutt

Actor Sanjay Dutt is looking forward to begin his second innings in Bollywood after completion of his jail term and he says from now on he will sign films on the merit of its content and not as a favour.

The 56-year-old actor was released from Pune’s Yerawada jail last month after he was granted remission in his five-year sentence.

Dutt said he wants to bring a change in the kind of movies that are being made in the Hindi film industry.

“I am going to do great cinema from now on. I will not do any movie as a favour to anyone or out of compulsion. I want to make a difference and I want to change the genre in the film industry,” Dutt said during a session at the India Today Conclave 2016.

The actor said he has three films coming up- one with Sidharth Anand, one with Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and the third Munnabhai film.

“In Sidharth’s film, I play a mature, action hero.

Vidhu’s film is about the relationship between a father and daughter. We will begin shooting ‘Munnabhai 3’ in 2017,” he said.

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who directed Dutt in “Munnabhai MBBS”, “Lage Raho Munnabhai” and “PK”, is now collaborating with Dutt on his biopic, besides the third “Munnabhai” film.
