Rahul Mittra is a well known Indian Award Winning Filmmaker who has produced path-breaking films like Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster (2011), Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns (2013), Bullett Raja (2013), Revolver Rani (2014), Sarkar 3 (2017) and is currently producing Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and Torbaaz with Sanjay Dutt.
Talking about his latest franchise Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and Sanjay Dutt, the producer has something really interesting to say, he said, “See, we don’t have much franchise in Indian cinema, only a handful, and most of those are namesake franchise, they are not really franchise; they are just title franchise. The story doesn’t really move forward in them and with every installment, they change the story and characters too”
“So Sanjay knew the real franchise is Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, and entered the world of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, and trust me, there is no bigger gangster them him”
After Randeep Hooda and Irrfan Khan, superstar Sanjay Dutt has been roped in to play the role of the main villain in the film.
Talking about roping the hunk, Rahul expressed that it was not that hard to get Sanjay Dutt to play the gangster.
He said, “It was not that hard to get Sanjay Dutt as Gangster for the film. There are two reasons behind it; first and foremost, he is a good friend of mine and he treats me like his younger brother. So there is a comfort level”
“Second, I think he knew about the world of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, because first time I talked with him, I didn’t even have the story. Only thing I had was the world of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. And Sanjay liked Tigmanshu’s work a lot and I was making a film already with him, so there was a comfort level and when we got the story, he said yes on the first day”
The movie also stars Jimmy Shergill, Mahi Gill, Chitrangada Singh, Soha Ali Khan, Kabir Bedi, Deepraj Rana, Nafisa Ali, Deepak Tijori and Rishina Kandhar in pivotal roles.
The movie releases on 27th July 2018.
