Nafisa, Kabir Bedi to Play Sanju’s PAR­ENTS in Sahib, Biwi And Gang­ster 3

The Day After - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
