Casinos play big role in Goa tourism: Sanjay Dutt
Panaji-Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has said casinos play a major role in boosting tourism in the coastal state of Goa.
He was speaking to reporters in Panaji on Saturday night at the sidelines of the launch of ‘Big Daddy’ casino, touted as Asia’s largest off-shore casino vessel.
The vessel is an upgraded version of a casino previously operating at the Mandovi river here.
“Casinos play a big role in tourism. People go to Macau, they go to Vegas, but it is beautiful to see something like this in India,” Dutt said.
The “Munnabhai” actor said he usually does not opt for gaming at casinos. “I just like to be at the bar and watch others play,” he added.
The Goa government in March this year granted six- month extension to all six off-shore casino vessels anchored at the Mandovi river.
