It is nearly inconceivable to imagine a movie from the Dhamaal franchise without Sanjay Dutt. In the previous two films of the franchise, he made us laugh so hard that we almost fell out of our chairs. But guess it was destiny’s decision that it was all we were going to see of Dutt’s association with the franchise.
In an unexpected turn of events, Dutt has decided to NOT be a part of the third film of the franchise, titled Total Dhamaal. It was said that Dutt won’t be a part of this film due to his inability to provide dates until the end of 2018.
Turns out, there is more than what meets the eye. Apart from his lack of dates, he was not at all comfortable with the innuendo-laden jokes and crass humor which are indeed a very important part of the film.
Long story short, Dutt only plans to do family entertainers that his children could watch, and an adult comedy film such as Total Dhamaal doesn’t fit the bill according to him.
A source close to the development said “Besides the issue of unavailability of dates, Sanjay was not okay with the film’s adult comedy. He doesn’t want his children to see him in a film that has innuendo-laden jokes or crass humor”
On the work front, Dutt has recently wrapped up his comeback film Bhoomi, which is presumably in its post production stage right now. Apart from that, he has his dates locked in for Torbaaz, Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster 3 and a movie in collaboration with Ajay Devgn.
