Behind the scene: Sanjay Dutt on 'PK' set before going to jail


<PK>The film ‘PK’ has already created a buzz and has generated immense interest. There are several factors that have contributed to the popularity of the film. Rajkumar Hirani is the director of the film. Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan will play the protagonist in the movie. The duo of Aamir and Rajkumar Hirani has earlier delivered the memorable film ‘3 Iidots’. The fresh new pairing of Sushant Singh Rajput and Anushka Sharma is one major attraction. Besides, the ‘Munnabhai’ is also present in the cast of the movie. The poster campaign earned much attention for the film than the promoting team anticipated. The almost naked picture of Aamir Khan on the first poster created huge controversy and even legal charges were pressed against him and the film team.

As if this was not enough, the marketing team of the film ‘PK’ has recently released a video showing ‘behind the camera’ scenes recorded during the shooting of the movie. This has once again ignited the interest in the movie. In the video, the producer of the film, Vidhu Vinod Chopra narrates the story of finding a tall actor to play the character of the bandwala Bhairon Singh and the obvious choice was Sanjay Dutt. The Munnabhai didn’t only turn out to be the perfect Bhairon Singh but also kept all at the sets entertained with his antiques and humour.

However, the fun filled environment came to an end with the verdict of Supreme Court in the year 2013 that sentenced Sanjay to serve a jail term of five years. The verdict came at a time when only a single day of shooting was left. Munnabhai completed the shoot and after a couple of days went to jail. Naturally there were teary goodbyes at the emotional parting, captured in the video.

It is rumoured that the third instalment of the ‘Munnabhai’ franchisee is planned to be made and its shooting will start as soon as Sanjay Dutt comes out of the jail. At present Aamir Khan has taken up the responsibility of promoting the film ‘PK’ on his broad shoulders. He was a t Banaras recently for a film promotion event and bought a sari for Anushka. He was at Hyderabad too for promoting ‘PK’. Aamir tasted biryani while at Hyderabad and commented, "It is the best meal I have had in a long time. Excellent biryani, excellent food; it is the first time I am having it here in Paradise. I want to come back fast now, to have another meal over here."
