Sanjay Dutt is currently one of the most popular and beloved actors of the Bollywood film industry. But there was a time when the actor became infamous for throwing tantrums on the sets of his films. As a result of this, he also lost numerous projects at that time. One such project was Subhash Ghai’s Hero featuring Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri in the lead roles. While scrolling through some information on social media, we have come to know the reason behind Sanjay Dutt’s replacement in the film.

So the original tiff between the Prassthanam actor and Subhash Ghai began on the sets of the 1982 film Vidhaata. It is during the shoot of this film that Sanjay Dutt had reported misbehaved with Padmini Kolhapure. This behavior of the actor scared Padmini so much that she left the sets. When Subhash Ghai came to know about this incident, he not only confronted Dutt but also slapped him in front of everyone.

If reports are to be believed, the actor continued with his tantrums and unruly behavior on the sets even after this incident. This is the reason why Ghai replaced him with Jackie Shroff in Hero and the rest is history! As we all know, the film went on to become a blockbuster hit. An official remake of Hero was made in 2015 featuring debutants Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty in the lead roles. It was directed by Nikkhil Advani and produced by Subhash Ghai himself.

Atleast Jaggu Dada Got a break All thnx 2 BABA, Every body Salutes Rising Sun, Why dd Subhash Ghai took BABA 4 Khalnayak had he been so unprofessional

At least Jaggu Dada Got a break all thnx to BABA,Every body salutes Rising Sun Why dd Subhash Ghai Went 4 BABA 4 Khalnayak if he was so unprofessional

Those were the days when he was addicted to drugs, not only Hero he lost lot of films to others like Yudh etc,etc

Stop using information from unverified sources for your articles. Sanjay Dutt behaved very unprofessionally under the influence of drugs during the shooting of Vidhata and didn't co-operate during the dubbing of the film which angered subash ghai so much that he repalced him in Hero. As far as his behaviour with Padmini Kolhapure is concerned, it happened during the muhurat of Insan ki Aulad a shelved movie, when Sanjay Dutt misbehaved with Padmini in an inebirated state. While both the facts are true they are unrelated.
