Every man, at some point in his life, wishes he could be James Bond. And with the news that Daniel Craig may well be out as 007, there are a whole bunch of actors from London to New Delhi wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Sanjay Dutt become the Seventh James Bond?
Dutt’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Om Shanti Om (2007), Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) and Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Dutt now is – what next?
Three reasons Sanjay Dutt would be good for the James Bond franchise
- It would clarify that Bond is a rotating identity: If M can be a woman, why can't James Bond be a 61-year-old Indian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Dutt.
- It would give Sanjay Dutt a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
