While Sanjay Dutt has almost patented the art of playing a gangster in dozens of films, he has hardly played the part of a playboy in any of his films. However, his next film release would change it all for him as he would be seen as a rich business tycoon who possesses all the luxuries in the life.
The film is Afzal Khan's MEHBOOBA and Sanju plays the character of Shravan Dhariwal. Playing the role of the most eligible bachelor who leads an envious lifestyle, he loves being in the company of beautiful and desirable women and makes sure that his charm and money get him all that he desires.
One such woman who comes in Sanju's life in MEHBOOBA is Varsha [Manisha Koirala] who refuses to cave in despite all richies presented to her on a platter. Though Sanju ultimately manages to woo her, he has a sinister plan in place which threatens to shatter Manisha's life forever.
What exactly is the playboy's plan here.....?
With Ajay Devgan as the other male lead, MEHBOOBA is a film which has taken almost a decade to reach the finishing line. The film is aiming for a July 2008 release.
