Sanjay Dutt on playing Adheera while battling with lung cancer

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

Adheera was definately a intense and challanging role to play but what made it more difficult was Sanjay Dutt's battle with cancer. During a recent conversation with Mid-Day, Sanjay shared how the film crew made it possible for him to give his best even in declining health condition.

He stated, "They suggested we shoot it against a green screen. But as an actor, shooting this film correctly was important to me. We had a grand vision for it. The climax had to be mounted on a large scale. It was a difficult climax - there was mud, dust, fire and a lot of action. I couldn’t have done that shoot without their help."

Talking about his character, Sanjay said, "He is menacing, but at the same time, humane [to some]. A lot of how Adheera has shaped up is from the energy that Yash and I brought to each scene. What a talent he is!"

The actor then expressed gratitude towards his fans for their prayers and well wishes. He said, "I got by, thanks to my fans’ prayers."
