After the recent spate of films depicting Sanju Baba in his iconic 'Bhai' avatar, here's a complete overhaul of the original 'Khalnayak' of Hindi cinema.
Come Diwali, Sanjay Dutt is all set to scorch the silver screen with what seems to be one of his most powerful roles of the decade - that of 'Ringmaster'.
Yes, that's what he's called in ALADIN, produced by Sunil Lulla and Sujoy Ghosh and directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
Here Sanjay essays the role of a most unusual villain - 'Ringmaster' who can inspire tremendous awe and fear in the audiences' mind. Ringmaster is a character which takes villainy to new heights, but at the same time manages to endear himself to everyone.

Talking of Ringmaster, says creator & director Sujoy Ghosh, 'He (Ringmaster) is a fun, evil character. A man who is happy in what he is doing. A man who is good at being bad; whose smile would scare the living daylights out of you. A man so big that even the all powerful Genie would be rendered helpless in front of him.
And to play such a powerful character, I couldn't think of anyone but Sanjay Dutt. The larger than life persona that he so beautifully portrays on screen is unmatchable'.
Looks like after Gabbar & Mogambo, perhaps Ringmaster is the next Bollywood villain to strike fear in your hearts!
ALADIN is a contemporary look at the classic fairy tale. Packed with fun, music, masti, action and adventure ALADIN boasts of a visual scale never seen before on Indian screen.
Starring Amitabh Bachchan as Genius - The Genie, Ritiesh Deshmukh as Aladin and Sanjay Dutt as 'Ringmaster', 'Aladin' also marks the debut of Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes who is paired opposite Ritiesh. With music by Vishal and Shekhar, ALADIN is produced by Eros International in association with Sujoy Ghosh's production company Boundscript.
ALADIN is all set to arrive in theatres this October.
