Sanjay Dutt celebrates his 62nd birthday today. The actor has had an envious career with at least 153 hits to his name. But this time, he will be seen in a brand new avatar. He is will be next seen in Prashanath Neel’s KGF Chapter 2 where he plays the role of a vicious villain.
The director and the production team planned a little surprise for the actor. On his birthday, they released a brand new poster of the film where Sanjay Dutt will be seen as his on-screen character Adheera.
Director Prashanth Neel took to his Twitter to share this image and captioned it “War is meant for progress, even the vultures would agree with me” – “Happy Birthday, Adheera, @duttsanjay sir.”

Considering the ruthless antagonist he plays here, the poster does complete justice to the devilish and fiercely terrifying character. Sanjay Dutt replied to this tweet and thanked the entire crew for this pleasant surprise on his birthday.
He wrote, “Thank you so much everyone for all the warm birthday wishes. Working on #KGFChapter2 has been amazing. I know you all have been waiting for the film’s release for a long time and I assure you that it’ll be worth the wait! (sic).”
