Mumbai, June 2 (IANS) Sanjay Dutt took on Munnabhai's role recently when he went to catch a show of "Shootout At Lokhandwala" with friend, business partner and producer Sanjay Gupta.

He was at his best, connecting with fans, chatting with the elderly and even admonishing the young at the Juhu PVR here.

"Sanju saw the film very minutely and even pointed out two errors in the end-titles. But the best was his interaction with the audience," Gupta told IANS.

"A 20-year old kid wanted a photograph with Sanju. When he saw the boy smoking Sanju snubbed the kid and agreed to a picture only if the kid stopped smoking. The best thing was Sanju himself was smoking while admonishing the kid," added the producer.

The most touching moment came when Sanjay saw a group of 20 senior citizens in a corner of the theatre.

"Sanju walked up to them and shook hands with each of them. You should've seen the expression on their faces. Sanju knows how to feel for people around him," said Gupta.

Sanjay, who plays a seasoned encounter specialist in the film based on a real-life police shootout led by Mumbai Police in 1991, attended the premiere but he couldn't see the movie. He was very keen to see it so he tried to catch it up Monday.
