Actor Sanjay Dutt, who walked out of Yerawada jail on Thursday after completing his sentence in the 1993 bomb blasts case, will begin shooting for Siddharth Anand’s action film this summer. The Bang Bang director is teaming up with Dutt for the first time.
“We will be working on a film soon. It’s an action film (yet to be titled) with elements of thrill. We will begin shooting in summer,” Siddharth said. He revealed it is not a multi-starrer. The project is likely to be the first for the 56-year-old actor after his jail term.
Asked if there is a leading lady romancing Dutt in the film, Siddharth chose not to give out any details. Dutt will also be seen in director Umesh Shukla’s untitled film with a social theme, Indra Kumar’s third instalment of comic caper Dhamaal and third part of Munnabhai series.
3 Idiots director Rajkumar Hirani has been working relentlessly on the script of a yet-untitled Sanjay Dutt biopic that he will take up next. The much talked-about film will see Ranbir Kapoor playing Dutt. Initially, the film-maker wasn’t kicked about the idea of the biopic.
