There was a time around 3-4 years back when Abhishek Bachchan was being seen in special appearances for number of films. In the current season, Sanjay Dutt is leading the bunch when it comes to his 'special appearances' in innumerous projects, most of which are helmed by his friends from the industry.
In months to come, Sanjay Dutt would be seen in a special appearance in at least two films - KAL KISSNE DEKHA and SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON. Incidentally, both the films show Sanjay Dutt in a song and dance appearance. While in KAL KISSNE DEKHA, he plays a DJ in a song set in a beachside party, SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON shows him and Anil Kapoor matching steps on a dance floor for a naughty track 'Mareej-E-Mohabbat'. Both the films are expected to arrive in the month of April.
In fact last year Sanjay Dutt made a record of sorts as he was seen in not one, not two but in as many as three films for a special appearance. These were SUPERSTAR, WOODSTOCK VILLA and C KKOMPANY. While he had a blink-and-you-would miss appearance in SUPERSTAR, the other two films had him lip synching to a song. Incidentally all the three films had flopped at the box office.
However, one wishes that the same is not the case with KAL KISSNE DEKHA and SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON. In the former, he appears in the film as a goodwill gesture to support newcomer Jackky Bhagnani who is the song of Vashu Bhagnani (with whom Sanjay Dutt has worked in SHAADI NO. 1). On the other hand SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON brings him together with friend and colleague Anil Kapoor, along with whom he had started his career in an almost parallel manner close to three decades back.
