Last week while Bollywood newbie Ramcharan Teja shot for Zanjeer at Film City in the suburbs of Mumbai, he had a surprise guest visiting him who was none other than Sanjay Dutt.
Dutt had never met Ramcharan. But he decided to drop in for lunch and to offer his good wishes.
Interestingly, Rana Daggubati and Ramcharan Teja are best friends in real life. We hear Ramcharan who gets married in June, is planning a bachelor holiday in Istanbul with all his friends including of course best friend Rana.
As for Sanjay Dutt, says an eyewitness from the Zanjeer location. "We were shooting at Film City when we saw Baba's car drive in. He got down, met director Apoorva Lakhia and then sought out Ramcharan Teja. He sat with Ramcharan and spoke to him for a good half an hour. Thereafter food was brought by Baba's Man-Friday. It was biryani cooked by Maanyata Bhabhi which Baba insisted on sharing with Ramcharan."
When contacted Ramcharan Teja seemed incredulous about the august company he had lately kept.
Says Ramcharan, "Mr. Dutt just showed up out of the blue. My Dad (Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi) knows him really well. But I never had the privilege of meeting Mr. Dutt before. He was really warm towards me."
