Probably his most iconic movie of all times, Dutt played a local goon posing as a doctor in the film and its sequel. The movie took the Indian film industry by storm and was a roaring success upon release.
Sanjay Dutt as the terrifying Kaancha Cheena in Agneepath will surely send shivers down your spine. The actor sported a bulky physique for this role. There’s more, he also went bald and used prosthetic make-up for the ferocious look.
Dutt once again turned into a strong and powerful villain in the period film Panipat. Playing the Afghan ruler, Ahmad Shah Abdali, he looked every bit fierce and savage yet regal, refined and magnificent.
