As Sanjay Dutt turns 59 on July 29 he has a lot to look forward to. His new film Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster3 in which he plays a gangster for the umpteenth time, opens right after the stupendous success of his biopic Sanju.
But would the success of the Dutt bio-pic positively impact the boxoffice figures of Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster 3? Considering that Sanjay Dutt has not had a success in years this could be his leap back into the big league.
Says trade analyst Atul Mohan, “Definitely Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster (SBG) will benefit from the success of Sanju.It has generated the necessary heat in the trade and amongst audience also. SBG has been a successful franchise and with Sanjay Dutt starring in this one has taken it to new level altogether. The success of Sanju proves that audience loves Baba.”
However trade expert Amod Mehra warns, “People’s expectations have risen after Sanju. But if the content is anything less than above-average it will backfire.”
This is the third part of the Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster franchise which stars Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill.
