If you miss the ‘Gumrah’ jodi, Sanjay Dutt and Sridevi, then there is a good news for you! Yes, finally the couple is coming back in a movie, named Shiddat. The movie will also cast Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Alia Bhatt!
Says a trade source, “Sanju, who plays a rich businessman from Lahore and Sridevi, his wife, will be seen together as Varun and Aditya’s parents in the film, which is an intense, romantic period drama. They had last acted together in the action drama-cum crime thriller, Gumrah (1993), written by Robin Bhatt and Sujit Senand, and directed by Mahesh Bhatt.”
“While the film was the seventh highest grossing Hindi film at the box office that year, they never worked together after that. Gumrah was their first film and they never worked together in the 1980s as Dutt was hooked on alcohol and drugs most of the time which hadn’t created a good impression on the actress during their first encounter. “
“So whenever Sridevi signed a film, Dutt would not be the hero – till Gumrah! But after that she was fine and when he was arrested in the early 1990s, along with other stars, she went to show her support for Dutt at a rally. In Shiddat both Sridevi and Sanju have powerfully, well-etched out roles which will be remembered.”
