Gurgaon: It seems Salman Khan`s `Dabangg` Chulbul Pandey has become an iconic character. Sanjay Dutt, who dons the khaki for `Department`, says he would love to play a similar kind of role.
"I wish I could do Chulbul Pandey but this (`Department` role) is something different. `Department` talks about police department. It is a real story with real characters. It is about two cops, while one works with values and principles, the other is completely opposite," Sanjay told reporters here Monday.
"It`s a commercial film but it has a meaning to it. I couldn`t play Chulbul Pandey or Singham (Ajay Devgn`s role in `Singham`) in it," he added.
The actor was here for the promotion of "Department", which hits the screen May 18. Sanjay was accompanied by co-star Rana Daggubati and item girl Nathalia Kaur.
The movie also features Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role.
