Dutt's cameo in 'Desi Boyz'

Dutt's cameo in 'Desi Boyz'
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 preview!

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!
