As Sanjay Dutt‘s father was legendary actor Sunil Dutt, speculations have been rife about who will portray his character in the film. According to a leading daily, Rajkumar Hirani has locked Akshaye Khanna for Sunil Dutt’s role. After considering many actors, Akshaye is actually the top contender for the role.
