MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; October 9, 2009)


Tuesday’s assembly elections have robbed actor turned-politician Sanjay Dutt of precious sleep. Political bigwigs have been having midnight trysts with the actor, who is shooting round the-clock for a thriller at a suburban studio. However, mention his Diwali (October 16) release — Devgn Films’ All The Best, in which he returns to comedy — and Sanjay’s face breaks into a smile.
Bollywood’s Munnabhai, who displayed a comic side to his personality with the most famous comedy franchise, is geared up for yet another rib-tickling situational comic film. He admits that the film’s a laugh-a-riot with clean humour, to be enjoyed by the entire family.

Every character is involved in a series of madcap situations, but Sanjay says he was hesitant to do a scene that had slight overtones of a gay relationship. Praising director Rohit Shetty, he says, “He assuaged all my apprehensions and before you knew it, I was actually enjoying the scene.’’ Well, and what is that famous scene? Sanju reminisces, “There is a scene in which I’m fast asleep, and an equally drowsy Ajay, who mistakes me for his girlfriend Bipasha Basu, climbs on top of me and tries to seduce me.’’

Laughing his guts out, Sanju adds, “Like I said, I’m also fast asleep in the scene with my head covered, so initially I’m enjoying Ajay’s affections but when I realise what is happening, I freak.’’

The smile doesn’t leave his face. “It’s something I’ve never done before. But like I said, All The Best is a complete fun film and there are many such funny situations. Despite all my initial reservation about some of the comic scenes, once I got into character, I just decided to go ahead and have a ball shooting for it.”

For someone who looks so casual about his work, Sanjay is said to have an elephant’s memory, he can mouth three page dialogues after just glancing through it a couple of times. “When you’re doing comedy, the first take is invariably the best because most often it comes straight from the heart. Trying to replicate the same magic over and over again sometimes doesn’t work,’’ he reveals.
Well, to see if Munnabhai at what he is best at, one will just have to wait till this Diwali.
