Sanjay Dutt on playing Adheera while battling lung cancer – Bollywood News

Veteran Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt has played a wide range of memorable characters over the years and soon he will be seen in another menacing avatar in ‘KGF: Chapter 2’. The actor will play the role of main antagonist Adheera, who was briefly teased in the first installment of the series.

Adheera was undoubtedly an intense and difficult role to play, but what made it harder was Sanjay Dutt’s battle with cancer. In a recent chat with Mid-Day, Sanjay talked about how the film crew allowed him to perform at his best even in declining health.

He said, “They suggested shooting it on a green screen. But as an actor, shooting this movie properly was important to me. We had a big vision for it. The climax had to be climaxed on a grand scale. It was a tough climax – there was mud, dust, fire and lots of action. I couldn’t have done this shoot without their help.”

Speaking about his character, Sanjay said, “He’s menacing, but at the same time, human. [to some]. A big part of how Adheera formed was because of the energy that Yash and I brought to each scene. What a talent he has!”

The actor went on to express his gratitude to his fans for their prayers and well wishes. He said, “I got through it, thanks to the prayers of my fans.”
