Dutt's cameo in 'Desi Boyz'

21 November 2011 11:08 PM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Not many are aware that Sanjay Dutt makes an interesting cameo in Desi Boyz. Of course, one of the trailers of the film shows a glimpse of Dutt, but the focus is on Akshay Kumar and John Abraham in the movie and rightly so. However, Rohit Dhawan, son of David Dhawan, has an interesting story to narrate about Dutt, when the first-time director approached him for the film. It seems, Dutt, who shares a fantastic rapport with Rohit's father David and who had known Rohit ever since he was a kid, didn't think twice before accepting the small but significant part in Desi Boyz. "He didn't want to listen to the story or what role he was supposed to play. All he said was, when do you want me to be on the sets?," Rohit divulges. Incidentally, David Dhawan's directorial debut Taaqatwar starred Sanju [and Govinda] in the lead role, 22 years ago. »

Rascals director David Dhawan has said that Sanjay Dutt is like "an open book". The actor appears alongside Ajay Devgn in the upcoming comedy, which sees him playing a conman determined to outsmart a rival trickster. Dhawan previously worked with Dutt on the 1980 hit Taaqatwar. He told New Kerala: "[Sanjay] is like an open book. He doesn't hide anything. I think he is basically the most simple guy I have ever seen. "I started my career with him 20 years back as a director, and he is still the same. There is no change in him." Dhawan said (more) »

Rascals preview!

20 September 2011 4:51 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn are buddies who are going through thick and thin together. When Ajay made his home production All The Best – Fun Begins, Sanju didn’t hesitate for a moment to join the cast. And when now Sanju finally launched his first home production (together with the producers Sanjay Ahluwalia and Vinay Choksey), it was Ajay who willingly supported his buddy and signed for the comedy Rascals directed by David Dhawan. Mostly shot in Bangkok and Phuket, Rascals is now set to be released at Dusserah on October 6, 2011.

Rascals is a comedy about the joys of conning where Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn play two cool competing conmen trying to out-scheme each other in consistently amusing and surprising setups. But when both fall for the same girl (Kangna Ranaut), the competition reaches an all new level as both men constantly attempt to outwit each other to win over the surprisingly elusive Kangna! »
