Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn being seen in diapers for RASCALS may have raised a chuckle or two. However in the film they are much more than playing grown up kids. If sources are to be believed, when the film was being written the mandate was to create scenes that bring back the memories of Amitabh Bachchan-Vinod Khanna combination.

"When it came to the pairing of these superstars, it was like bringing together fire and ice", says a source attached to the film, "Sanjay Dutt is known for his action hero image and Ajay Devgan has now excelled in being goofy and loveable. David Dhawan, the film's director, wanted to present Sanju baba and Ajay in a similar manner as Manmohan Desai did with Big B and Vinod Khanna."

The obvious reference points were films like AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY, PARVARISH and (old) HERA PHERI to name a few. Result was a cocktail that resulted in a film which is about two heroes who are constantly playing the game of one-upmanship.

CHECK OUT: Sanjay Dutt & Lisa Haydon 'Shake it' for RASCALS!

"Yes, it was a conscious decision to revisit Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna of the era gone by", admits Dhawan who has already wrapped up over 80% of the film, "I have always maintained that Manji (Manmohan Desai) has been my 'guru'. And when you have Sanju and Ajay at your disposal, who are easily today's Bachchan and Khanna then why to look elsewhere?"

With camaraderie between Sanju and Ajay pretty much established since the days of ALL THE BEST, one waits to see how the actors have further cut loose in RASCALS which would be releasing late this year.
