Big B, Sanjay Dutt at loggerheads
In real Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt are the greatest pals but when it comes to sharing screen space, they become the greatest rivals. They have worked in a dozen of films together but Kaante (2002) stands out. Now their rivalry will again be seen in Eros International's Aladin.
"Both the actors are fighting it out in Aladin. It's a different energy altogether when actors like these are pitted against each other. This time around it is Genius - The Genie (Big B) v/s Ringmaster (Sanjay Dutt)," Director Sujoy Ghosh said.
In real, Sanjay respects Bachchan a lot and hides his cigarette every time Big B enters his room. "When two actors like these are pitted opposite each other, there are bound to be fireworks. Now whether these would be through power packed dialogues or some intense scenes or symbolic gestures is something that would be for audiences to see once the film arrives in October. However, I can assure that those looking for a man-to-man combat, whether physically or verbally, won't be disappointed", said Sujoy.
In Aladin, Amitabh Bachchan plays the Genie, Ritiesh Deshmukh as Aladin and Sanjay Dutt as 'Ringmaster'.
