"It is as uncanny as it gets," comments a historian, "In both instances, his visit to jail has been followed by one of his most hyped films to have been released. Khalnayak was his biggest film back then and was made by Subhash Ghai. He reached peak of his popularity along with the film. Now Policegiri is one film on which he has invested maximum number of days and effort when compared to any other film since Agneepath. Remake of Tamil super hit Saamy, it is his biggest film as a central protagonist."
"Given the kind of instant buzz that the promo has managed to create, it won't be a surprise if history repeats itself, at least in the single screens, when Policegirl releases in July," a filmmaker believes.
Now it has to be seen whether it manages to cover a distance as far as Khalnayak.
