Director Tigmanshu Dhulia today said well-developed characters and a good story are the backbone of “Sahib Biwi aur Gangster” franchise. “The drama genre has suffered because the writing is not good these days. But Sahib Biwi aur Gangster series has it,” Dhulia said. “You will get well-developed characters who cannot be described as simple in this film. You will get to listen good language in these films. We have maintained all these things in our films,” he added.
The director is back with the third part — “Sahib Biwi aur Gangster 3” — of the popular franchise. In the threequel, Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill have once again reprised their respective role from the franchise.
Sanjay Dutt has taken the mantel of playing a gangster in the third part. Actors Randeep Hooda and Irrfan Khan had played gangsters in the previous films. Unlike the predecessors, the threequel is more glamorous, which the director said was important for the story.
“The story has become bigger. The characters of Biwi and Saheb have matured. Even the haveli you saw in previous films has improved. The class has improved,” Dhulia said.
“This is not a period film. It is the story of 2018. If we look around ourselves, everything has improved. The characters from Delhi and Gorakhpur are all the same. You will find malls in both the cities. The visual arena of India is becoming common. This is what we have shown in the film,” he added.
