Sanjay Dutt was not the director's first choice for the villain filmNew Delhi:
Yes, I am the villain... Fans are forced to applaud when Sanjay Dutt says this while shaking his neck with full swag on the big screen and shaking big hair. He was a villain who also received a lot of love for the negative character. Not only did he get love but this film proved to be a game changer for his career as well. Which gave such a boost that Sanjay Dutt's career started filling a new tradition of success. Very few people who became his fans from this film would know that Sanjay Dutt was not the first choice for the film. After the refusal of three people, Sanjay Dutt got a chance to become Ballu.
These stars denied it.
The film's director Subhash Ghai wanted to finalize Aamir Khan for this role. But Aamir Khan was not in the mood to do a negative role then. That's why he refused the film. After his refusal, the makers wanted to cast Nana Patekar in the film. Anyway, the bonding of Nana Patekar and Jackie Shroff was also being liked at that time. Subhash Ghai himself had said in an interview that work on the story was also started by finalizing Nana Patekar.
This is how Sanju Baba got the film
As the story of the film became final. The makers realized that Nana Patekar is not the best choice for the film. After this, Sanjay Dutt was offered this role and he also agreed. However, later Anil Kapoor also expressed his desire to do the film. Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor and Subhash Ghai, who worked together in Ram Lakhan, would have got a chance to work together again. But by then there had been talks with Sanjay Dutt. Because of which this role went out of Anil Kapoor's hand.
