The Khalnayak actor shared the first motion poster of Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and promised that the film will be three times "more intense." The motion poster introduces Sanjay Dutt, who is dressed in a tuxedo and looks dangerous with a gun in his hand. He wrote: "Jee haan Main Hun Khalnayak... Ab Ban Gaya Hun Gangster! The story has just begun and it's three times more intense now." Sanjay Dutt previously played the role of a gangster in films like Vaastav and Kaante among others.

The film also features Nafisa Ali, who will be seen playing the role of Sanjay Dutt's mother in the film. "Am excited to be playing Royalty. As the cast are old friends -shooting outdoor amazing - Tigmanshu you saw the potential in me so I am happy," Nafisa Ali had tweeted. Besides, we are to witness the collaboration of Kabir Bedi and Sanjay Dutt after a span of over three decades. The actors were last seen together in Yalgaar. Though little is known about the plot, we know Jimmy Shergill, Mahi Gill and Chitrangada Singh also play pivotal roles in the film.
Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster, which released in 2011, featured Randeep Hooda, Mahie Gill and Jimmy Sheirgill in lead roles. The second installment featured Irrfan Khan and Soha Ali Khan while Randeep Hooda's character was written out.
Sanjay Dutt was last seen in Bhoomi, which released in 2017. His role in Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 is totally different from his last release, where the actor played Aditi Rao Hydari's onscreen father.
