Sanjay Dutt has revealed that Agneepath shows him at his darkest.

The actor takes on the role of the villainous Kancha in Karan Johar's remake of the 1990 original.

Dutt told The Times of India: "I loved the character. Kancha Cheena is so complex, crazy, dark, unpredictable and larger than life.

"I was an anti-hero in Khalnayak but this guy was something out of this world! I have never seen or played a character so dark and evil. Yet though Kancha is a very dark character, his lines are very funny!"

Dutt added: "I found Kancha extremely challenging as I haven't ever done something so dark before. I am not like him. The other day when I was dubbing for Kancha for the climax, halfway through, I asked the director to just stop!

"When he asked why, I said I couldn't bear it anymore and needed to go for a smoke, soothe my nerves and then start dubbing again. I had to stop dubbing for half an hour as I couldn't bear to see myself as someone so wicked, evil and crazy. After the dubbing, I called Maanayata and told her I can't believe it's me doing that! "

In June 2011, the star shaved his head for the role of the gang overlord.

Dutt has previously said that he does not usually enjoy playing villains on screen.
