It's been a pretty long time since we have seen action man, Sanjay Dutt in a full-fledged action role. Most of his films in the recent past have been comedies or thrillers. Even the upcoming project KNOCK OUT is more of a thriller and not a totally action oriented movie, as can be seen from the promos that have been unleashed across all television channels and web portals. So, what is the reason behind deadly Dutt not doing his well loved 'dhishum-dhishum' action roles?
Well, Dutt admitted not signing action oriented films and he has a pretty solid logic behind doing roles that are a complete departure from his image. He feels that action movies are going through a bad phase in Bollywood and that movies have to reach the level of the action of IRON MAN or AVATAR to be appreciated by the global audience. He lamented the fact that Indian cinema does not have an international market unlike other countries like China and Korea and felt that this was the reason for the pathetic show of action movies in the past. He also stressed on the need for a change of way films are made in Bollywood so that they could appeal to the global audience and also in India.
Well, some sound logic behind Dutt's not doing action films, yet we await his return to what he does best!
