Sanjay Gupta replaces Vivek Oberoi to please Sanjay Dutt
Sanjay Gupta and Sanjay Dutt were friends and partners in White Feather Films production. However now there are rumours that the two former friends are no longer on good terms and several reasons have been put forth for the rift in their friendship. However now according to sources, Sanjay Gupta is trying his best to appease buddy Sanjay Dutt. Gupta has even replaced actor Vivek Oberoi in his films as Sanju baba is not too fond of Vivek.
According to sources, Sanjay Dutt was not very happy when he found out that Gupta was casting Vivek Oberoi in his film. Dutt is not fond of Vivek as he felt that the latter tried to hit on his girlfriend Maanyata. Dutt was also irritated that Gupta has been going around town saying “he would make another Sanjay Dutt of Vivek Oberoi.” Gupta now wants to prove his loyalty towards Dutt and so he has decided to drop Vivek Oberoi from his future projects. Gupta had considered Vivek for the sequel to Kaante, which is ‘Khotte Sikkey’. Now Vivek has been replaced with Kunal Kapoor. Sanjay Gupta stated “It’s too early to talk about Khotte Sikkey. But yes, Kunal Kapoor is being seriously considered.”
According to some sources, problems began when Dutt found out that Gupta was not paying his White Feather Film employees on time. This is what triggered the rift in their friendship. Sanjay Dutt was not at all happy when he found out that the finances of White Feather films were not in order. Sanjay soon decided to part with Gupta in the partnership of White Feather Films. Sources also claim that Maanyata, Sanju’s girl was not too happy with their friendship when she began managing Dutt’s home, his finances and life. It has been reported that she often felt that Gupta was taking undue advantage of Dutt.
It was recently reported that Sanjay Dutt who is holidaying with Maanyata in Goa actually went for the trip at this time as he wanted to avoid attending the premiere of Dus Kahaniyaan with Sanjay Gupta. Sanjay Dutt and Maanyata also visited the sets of Golmaal 2 while in Goa. They mingled with the cast and crew which had Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor etc. It seems like Dutt and Maanya are enjoying their time together. Dutt will resume shooting for his films when he gets back from his holiday.
