Sanjay Dutt seems to have a link with Mahatma Gandhi after the actor's blockbuster film, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, where he introduced Gandhigiri. On October 2, the birth anniversary of Gandhiji, Dutt offers us another film, albeit of a different kind.
Kidnap sees Dutt as a father, coping with his daughter's kidnap, and trying his best to rescue her. He tells Girish Rao more about the film.
How was it working with rising star Imran Khan in Kidnap?
It was a pleasure working with him and seeing a young man like him have such immense confidence. He has done a wonderful job in the film. I just hope he remains the way he is right now. He is humble, and may God bless him in all his endeavours.
Did being a father help you play Minissha Lamba's father in the film?
Absolutely! The story of Kidnap was narrated to me a long back. It was supposed to be made soon after Dhoom released. At that time, Adi [Aditya Chopra] told me that he could not think of any other actor except me in the role of the father after he saw the television show Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai. He said the way I interacted with my daughter, Trishala, was very moving.
At times, it struck me that what if it were my own daughter, what would I have done? You become helpless no matter how much money you have. It's really a very scary thought.
