Sanjay Dutt, whose film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 is all set to release on the 27th of July, 2018, has apparently refused to promote this gangster flick. Why? You may ask! The reason is his recently released biopic, Sanju. Even though the film is the highest grosser of 2018 so far, a section of the media isn’t really pleased with the way it has been portrayed in the film. If one looks into the narrative of the film post intermission, it hinges entirely on its bashing, and how it ruined Dutt’s personal life.
A source stated, “There were several channel interviews lined up and while Sanjay must have thought that ‘Sanju’ will bring him a lot of good luck and put his career back on track, it’s hardly happened. In fact, a huge section of the media has turned around and asked him several pointed questions about the media-shaming that he and Raju Hirani indulged in his biopic ‘Sanju’. Media personnel are extremely upset that despite the support they have provided to the actor even during his trying times, he turned around and in turn blamed the media for everything.”
The source added, “He cancelled all other interviews and slammed the PR team. He even told them he won’t be giving any further dates for promotions and his manager will now carefully look into which journalist they want to call, depending on the actor’s equation with them. Dutt wants the whole team to fly down journos of his choice to Lucknow where he’s shooting for ‘Prassthanam’ and the producers who are already choking with the budget involved, are currently rethinking their own marketing strategy.”
It seems Sanju’s success hasn’t helped the actor in any way, it has only made the situation worse!
