Sanjay Dutt has been conspicuous by his absence from the promotional activities for Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 (SBG3), a film that’s expected to bring him back into the reckoning. Those who’ve already watched it, say that Dutt is “pure dynamite”. But sadly, the actor’s been so busy shooting for Prasthanam in Lucknow, that he’s had no time to promote SBG3.
Now, we hear that producer Rahul Mittra has persuaded Dutt to do take some time off from his shoot to participate in some pre-release publicity activities.
“Baba has so much confidence in SBG3 that he doesn’t feel the need to publicise it. But the producer has changed his mind. Even God needs publicity these days! Dutt will fly down from Lucknow to Delhi on Wednesday to do a series of television and web interviews in a day-long marathon session,” a source reveals.
Another source close to Dutt tries to exonerate him, “Sanjay made it very clear he wouldn’t be available for promotions in July. But now he has asked the producers of Prasthanam for some time off,” the source says.
Clearly, the actor thinks that SBG3 is important enough to put his other
project on hold for a bit.
