Ajju with his team makes a plan to rob the bank in which lie the fundings for the Los Angeles Police Department. Sanjay made the character so convincing that we fell in love with him more.
Kancha Cheena, an unscrupulous man, often mocked for his hairless appearance; he runs Mandwa as a concentration camp and exploits the villagers in order to deal in cheap cocaine. People got scared by the look of Sanjay’s character as Kancha Cheena. Sanjay Dutt received a lot of appreciation for this role more than Hrithik.
Be it comedy or a badass cop or gangster or a majnu, we love the way you portray your roles.
