Think about Sanjay Dutt and the image that blares is of a tall, masculine structure in kurta with looks that can bring a nice chill down the spine. The all time favourite Anti-Hero who has well occupied his space as Sanju Baba in our heart will be soon seen as ‘Kancha Cheena’ in the remake of the movie ‘Agneepath’ directed by Karan Malhotra who was assistant director to Karan Johar in some of his ventures.
Ask Sanju Baba about his role in the movie and the 52 year old hunk says even he is scared of Kancha, i.e, the role he is playing in the movie. The actor is also moved by the response he is getting from public after the news spread about he acting as ‘Kancha’ in Agneepath. He was even heard quoting “Yeh Kya Ho Gaya Hai” when he received loud appreciation in Nagpur and Indore where people shouted ‘Kancha’ ‘Kancha’ on seeing him.
After all his outstanding roles as an anti-hero in ‘Khalnayak’ and ‘Vaastav’, the actor himself is scared of his role in Agneepath which is negetive right from the beginning to the end. He even paused his shoot while dubbing for the movie and when asked repeatedly by director Karan Malhotra, he said that he himself could not believe that it was him doing the role and he is scared of the character. Kancha Cheena in Agneepath which is now directed by Karan Malhotra potrays Kancha in a different way from what it was in the old Agneepath. Kancha Cheena played by Danny Denzongpa was a man in suit who operated the gang from outside whereas the Kancha played by Sanju Baba potrays a bald man, who is in black outfit, with looks so frightening that it makes the other person stumble. He is playing a character of an unpredictable villain who is villanious in his every move. In short, Sanjay is all negetive as compared to the Anti-Hero roles he played in many movies. The actor also said it was not hard to play such an hardcore villanious character as Karan Malhotra (director) guided him superbly with all the moves and styles that Kancha should have and He (Malhotra) also entertained all the suggestions that Sanjay had.
This movie has Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor and many more talented stars that brings the heat to the movie. With Sanjay Dutt as ‘Kancha’, the movie promises a villainious character that will make its mark in your mind and will stay there for a long time. Though according to all there can be no match to Sanju Baba for playing the negetive role of ‘Kancha Cheena’ in ‘Agneepath’, still the rough character of the villain scares him and he has worked hard to bring the rough ‘Kancha Cheena’ in him so that he delivers it in the way that makes it impossible for the viewer to forget him. The movie will release on January 26th.
