Although it may seem to actor Sanjay Dutt that certain sections of the film industry have turned their backs on him, the fact remains that his friends are staunchly loyal to him.
This is proven by the fact the final shots of the Zanjeer remake are being changed to accommodate the actor's date of surrendering before the court.
A remake of the 1973 super hit action thriller, which was Big B's first blockbuster, the new Zanjeer has been directed by filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia and features actors Ramcharan Teja, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles.
"We are shooting an extra scene with Sanju Sir. Earlier, he was not meant to be seen in the closing shots. It was just Ramcharan Teja and Priyanka Chopra. But now we all feel since this would probably be Sanju Sir's last shot for the next few years, we want the audience to leave the theatre with a very strong impression of his character," says a source.
A quip-like dialogue has also been specially written for Sanjay.
Says the source: "It's a very old fashioned ending now where Sanjay's character Sher Khan would make a witty remark."
