As Sallu will party away in Dubai, Sanju, his co-host on a reality show, will cut short his Bali vacation to make up for his absence
Work commitments have thrown a spanner in the holiday plans of Sanjay Dutt. The star along with wife Maanayata and twins Shahraan and Iqra left over the weekend for a vacation in Bali.
But now he has been summoned back for a special shoot on December 31 for the reality show he hosts. As co-anchor Salman Khan has kept himself away from the shoot, Dutt has no way out but to return by December 30.

Says a source, "Sanjay had planned the family trip around Christmas and had planned to return only after January 1.
He waited for his flick Agneepath's trailer launch on Friday and the show's shoot on Saturday and planned his departure only after these events.
But the makers of Bigg Boss planned a special episode shoot on December 31 and the channel authorities requested Sanjay to be present for it."
Adds the source, "He decided to return on December 30. He will fly in a chopper to Karjat on December 31 for
the special episode shoot."
As Salman is not shooting for the show, there was no other option left for Sanjay or the channel. "As a result he decided to be professional and not let personal reasons overrule." Dutt now plans to usher in 2012 in Mumbai.
Last year, Salman who was in Dubai for his birthday (December 27) as well as New Year celebrations had flown into Mumbai in the wee hours of December 31 to shoot for the episode and returned to Dubai in the evening.
But this time, the star who is slated to be in the desert Emirate again is in no mood to fly down for the shoot.
