He's played the affable Munnabhai and the deadly Kaancha Cheena with equal ease. Now Sanjay Dutt has stepped into the shoes of Pran (who played Sher Khan in old Zanjeer) as Sher Khan, the lovable Pathan in Zanjeer song Khochey Pathan Ki Zubaan.
Sanjay Dutt in a still from the Zanjeer remake where he plays the role of Sher Khan.
Dutt looks every bit of a Pathan as he shakes
a leg with Ram Charan Teja. Dutt manages to stand out in the song overshadowing Priyanka Chopra and the lead actor Teja.
The song which is a qawwali, is sung by Sukhwinder Singh.
The making of Sher Khan
Dutt's look has been designed by director Apoorva Lakhia himself. Lakhia exactly knew what kind of get-up he wanted for Sanjay Dutt as Sher Khan. He roped in well-known designer Navin Shetty for the costume and popular hair stylist Aalim's team for the hair!
The film stars Ram Charan Teja as Inspector Vijay, Priyanka Chopra as Mala, Prakash Raj as the villain Teja. Mahie Gill will reprise Mona Darling. Both the Hindi and the Telegu versions will hit theatres on September 6.
