Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, whose performance in pan-Indian blockbuster ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ has been praised, on Saturday said that the credit for how his character ‘Adheera’ turned out in the film must go entirely to director Prashanth Neel.

Taking to Twitter and Instagram, he posted a note that read: “There will always be some films which will be more special than others. Every once in a while, I seek out a film which pushes me out of my comfort zone. It reminded me of my own potential and something about it felt like, I could have fun with it.

“This film made me realise why cinema at the end of the day, is a product of passion. Prashanth Neel, my director, had sold the vision of the menacing ‘Adheera’ to me. The credit, for how my role turned out, goes entirely to Prashanth. As the captain of the ship, it’s his dream we all brought to screen.

“This film will always be a reminder that every time, life pops a surprise, you have it in you to do better than that. Lots of love to my fans, family and well wishers. They have all been my pillars of strength.”

The film, which features Yash in the lead and which has Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, Prakash Raj and Sanjay Dutt playing pivotal roles, has been a hit.

Dutt will next be seen in ‘Shamshera’ and ‘Prithviraj’.

‘KGF: Chapter 2’ is out now in the UAE.
