Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has signed up almost 28 movies and is booked till 2010! The most interesting part is that the guy is now charging Rs.15 crores per film.
It is said that his price was raised by Suniel Shetty in his latest production venture ‘EMI‘ and has also signed-up the actor for his next project.
Dharam Oberoi, CEO of Sanjay Dutt Productions, confirmed it to IANS: “It is true Anna (Suniel) raised Baba’s (Sanjay) price in the market. Before that Baba was being taken for granted price-wise by all and sundry. Anna was adamant about Baba’s price and started a new precedent by paying him far above what Baba got from others.”
Director Rohit Jugraj, who has plans to make a bio-pic based on Sanjay’s life has to wait till 2011 to get the actor free for the shooting.
“Anything for Suniel is Baba’s motto,” said Oberoi. “Yes, Baba has accommodated a new assignment with Anna into his schedule at a time when he couldn’t afford to. It means he has to work harder.”
I bet Sanju is flying high these days! His career has taken off really well after the release from jail. Although, I just can’t imagine how much he’ll have to slog for working on those movies.
Meanwhile, the release of EMI has been delayed till November 7th because Sanjay is in South Africa right now.
