Khalnayak, which released in 1993, directed by Subhash Ghai, was a huge blockbuster at the box office, earning over ₹24 crore and becoming the second highest-grossing Hindi film of that year. The film was also known for its music, especially the song “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”, sung by Alka Yagnik and Ila Arun, which won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer.
The film tells the story of a notorious criminal named Ballu (Dutt), who escapes from prison and is pursued by a police officer named Ram (Shroff) and his girlfriend Ganga (Dixit), who goes undercover as a street-girl to trap him.
Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff Starrer Khalnayak To Re-Release On Big Screens
This iconic film of the 90s, starring Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit and Jackie Shroff, is all set to return to the big screen in September this year.
“We have already planned to release Khalnayak on September 4 through Mukta Arts Cinema, where we have more than 100 screens. We will celebrate the rerelease of the film with the press,” shares Ghai.
Ghai said that he decided to rerelease Khalnayak after seeing the success of Gadar 2, which is a sequel to the 2001 film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Gadar 2, which stars Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma reprising their roles from the first film, has grossed over ₹500 crore worldwide and emerged as the year’s second highest-grossing Hindi and Indian film. Ghai was inspired by the audience’s love for patriotic and action-packed films and is hoping that Khalnayak would also receive a similar response.

We have a story lab, they keep working on the story, and I am heading that department. People love nostalgia, and Ballu Balram of Khalnayak may appear on the screen in a big way,” says Subhash Ghai.
