Mumbai, Aug 17: Action hero Sanjay Dutt from the day of his Bollywood debut dreamed to be like his dad and iconic star Sunil Dutt. Now he feels time has come to be like his father and according to latest information he actually adopted one of Sunil Dutt saab's roles. Sources reveal that while enacting the scenes he broke down and wept at the likeness.Sanjay Dutt is planning to remake his dad's 's immortal dacoit drama Mujhe Jeene Do and now the same has now been incorporated into the new Ajay Devgn starrer Son Of Sardar (SOS)..
Film makers moulded Sanjay's character on the lines of Sunil Dutt in Mujhe Jeene Do, down to the clothes and hair and make-up. An insider says, "It wasn't the original plan to cast Sanju as a replica of his dad from Mujhe Jeene Do. When Sanju signed on for SOS he didn't even know what his role was. He just did it blindly for his friend Ajay Devgn who's producing the film. No particular look or get-up was planned for Sanju initially but then Agneepath came. In the film the special look went a long way in making Sanju's character a success. That's when Ajay suggested a special get-up for his pal Sanju to director Ashwin Dheer."
While the various looks were being discussed Sanju suggested his dad's Mujhe Jeene Do look which had fascinated him from the time he was a child. Director Ashwin Dheer concedes that the Mujhe Jeene Do look went a long way in giving character and personality to Sanjay Dutt in SOS. "Mr Dutt plays Sonakshi Sinha's over-possessive brother. Yes, his look and character bear a definite resemblance to Sunil Dutt saab in Mujhe Jeene Do. In fact we put Mr Dutt on a horse after a very long time. It's uncanny how much he resembles his father in SOS. When I pointed it out to Mr Dutt, he got very emotional."
