Dutt plays the iconic role of Sher Khan, a character made famous by Pran in the original film. A source close to the film reveals that after Dutt’s negative character as Kaancha Cheena in AGNEEPATH his new look as Sher Khan has attracted a lot of interest therefore a song and few action sequences featuring Sanjay Dutt will be added.
It is also learnt that the makers of the film went to meet veteran actor Pran who is recuperating in the hospital to inquire about his health & well-being and while they were talking the evergreen actor went on to say ”No one can play Sher Khan better than Sanju.”
