In an industry that is known for its struggle for one-upmanship, it’s quite heartening to hear of actors rooting for another. We hear that behind Sanjay Dutt’s cameo in Ghanchakkar, is his former co-star Vidya Balan.
The film is being produced by UTV. Vidya is married to CEO Siddharth Roy Kapoor and also stars in it.
A source close to the film says, “Vids has worked with Sanju in Parineeti and Lage Raho Munnabhai and they get along very well. When UTV had initially approached Sanjay with the cameo, he was very tied up.”
However, Vidya apparently intervened and convinced the actor to give his nod for the film. The source adds, “Sanjay could not say no to Vidya. After returning from Jaipur where he is shooting for Raju Hirani’s film, he will start work on Ghanchakkar.”
