Sanjay Dutt's role in Pri and Me, headlining Adah Sharma and debutant Dev Goel, is more than a cameo, a source tells Sawfnews.com exclusively.
Dutt plays a full-on character role as a police inspector. He has been shooting with the film's unit at Mehboob studio in Bandra for the past five days and will likely take another ten days to complete his part of the shoot.
As reported earlier, Sanjay has put his home production Rascals on hold to shoot for Pri And Me, as a favor to Jyotin.
Sanjay and Jyotin go way back a long way having worked together in films like Inaam Dus Hazaar (1987), Zahreeley (1990) and Safari (1999).
When Jyotin requested Sanjay to be a part of his film, Sanjay immediately agreed and gave his dates. Sanjay recalls how Jyotin had stood by him during his life's dark hours; Jyotin made Safari with Sanjay when the star faced serious charges under anti-terrorism laws for illegal possession of arms.
Pri and Me additionally stars talent powerhouses Anupam Kher and Juhi Chawla.
The film is a romantic comedy about two best friends. Adah plays 'Pri' short for Priyanka in the film.
