Nafisa, Kabir Bedi to Play Sanju’s PARENTS in Sahib, Biwi And Gangster 3
It had been late actor Sunil Dutt’s dream to get Nafisa Ali, whose performance he had loved in the 1979 Shyam Benegal film Junoon, to feature alongside his son, Sanjay, in a film. But junior Dutt was busy with his 1981 debut film, Rocky, and the project featuring the duo didn’t materialise.
Thirty-eight years later, Nafisa will play Sanjay’s mother in the third instalment of the Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster franchise being produced by Raju Chadha and Rahul Mittra. “I’ve known Rahul for years and he was keen I play the part. I was nervous because I have not faced the camera in years but I liked the role and so gave it my nod,” says the 60-year-old actress, who was a regular at family gatherings of the Dutts in the ‘90s.
