Sanjay Dutt smokes in non-smoking zone!

He can smoke in a non-smoking area. He can kill people without flinching. He is the dreaded police officer Mahadev Bhonsle in Ram Gopal Varma’s Department.The first look of the character essayed by Sanjay Dutt in the film has a lot more colour to it than Satya and Company”.

Sanjay Dutt plays an intense character. He isn’t all black or white. He has shades of grey in him. He hasn’t been seen in such a character in a very long time.

says RGV who has united with Sanjubaba, 15 years after they made Daud together.

Despite reports to the contrary, RGV tells us that he shares a great rapport with Dutt and is very fond of him.

I have always had a great tuning with Sanjay Dutt during Daud. With Department, the bond has only strengthened. The stories about conflicts between the two of us were all rumours. I am extremely fond of Sanjay on a personal as well as on a professional level.

Department is the story of an encounter specialist and his view of the underworld. On the line of Company, this film takes a closer look at the gangs and how they operate like a business organisation. Apart from Sanjay Dutt, the film also has Amitabh Bachchan playing the role of a gangster-turned-politician and Rana Daggubati as a young cop named Shivnarayan.

The film is an attempt to explore the relationship between the police and the underworld.
