Everyone knows how close Sanjay Dutt is to his daughter Trishala who is based out of the US. No surprise then that he found his role of a father in KIDNAP very close to his heart as he identified with his character of Vikrant Raina.

In KIDNAP, Sanjay Dutt's character is kept away from his daughter (played by Minissha Lamba) first by his wife (played by Vidya Malavade) and then by a kidnapper (played by Imran Khan).

When contacted, director Sanjay Gadhvi said, ''I think it was in 2002 or 2003 when Adi (Aditya Chopra) and my writer Shibani (Bathija) saw an episode of Farooq Sheikh's 'Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai' on television. Sanju baba was the guest on that show. Shibani, my writer, was completely bowled over by baba's love for his daughter Trishala and could see the pain and angst in his eyes. She called me immediately to say that we had found our Vikrant Raina. I caught the episode later and couldn't agree more! Vikrant Raina was written for Sanjay Dutt!''

Gadhvi adds, ''During the shooting of KIDNAP, Sanjay was remind of his own daughter every time he'd look at Minissha. He'd keep asking me what he would do if his daughter ever got kidnapped in real life. In fact, the scene in KIDNAP where he is separated from his daughter is one of his favourites and the closest to him. It was so real–life for him that he actually broke down. His ties with Trishala have grown stronger over the years.''

Sanju had such a great time shooting for KIDNAP that he wants to play a father once again. He is keen to do a Hindi version of Steve Martin's comedy, FATHER OF THE BRIDE.

KIDNAP is an Indian Films – Studio 18 worldwide release, which is set to hit the screens on Wednesday 1st October, 2008.
