Mumbai, Feb 7: Actor Sanjay Dutt was in the midst of shooting for "Policegiri" in Hyderabad when he received a call from director Rajkumar Hirani, asking if he would like to work in "Peekay". Now the actor is comfortably juggling between the two projects.
When Sanjay gave his nod to "Peekay", he knew it meant working harder to co-ordinate his timings well for "Policegiri".
Fortunately for the actor, the schedule of "Policegiri", in which he plays a cop, was almost complete and he was able to co-ordinate his dates smoothly.
In "Peekay", which stars Aamir Khan, Sanjay has a key role, which is being kept strictly under wraps.
Sanjay has already joined Hirani for the first schedule of "Peekay", which is being shot in Jaipur. The film marks Sanjay's return to the Hirani stable after the popular "Munnabhai" franchise. He is extremely excited about the role, said a source.
Post the Jaipur schedule, he is expected to resume shooting "Policegiri" in March.

"I have always wanted to do a role like this. I will be playing an intelligence officer," Minissha said in a statement.
In the movie, directed by Sanjay Sharma, Minissha will be seen opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She plays Nawazuddin's love interest in the movie, which will go on the floors later this month.
Randeep's lip-sync trouble
Actor Randeep Hooda had a hard time trying to lip-sync with the romantic song "Hasratein" from his forthcoming film "Murder 3", until choreographer Rajeev Surti came to his rescue.
"Rajeev went up to Randeep and suggested they do a pre-rehearsal for the song," said a source from the unit.
Randeep agreed to it, met Surti a day before the shoot and went through rigorous rehearsal. After an hour of gruelling practice, Randeep was confident he had mastered his lip-sync with the song.
When the shooting began the next day, everyone was anxious about how the shoot would go through as they knew the problem Randeep faced.
But as soon as the shoot started and the song was played, Randeep shifted into another gear and gave a perfect shot, the source added.
