Actor Sanjay Dutt’s superhit film, Khalnayak is likely to be made again. The 1993 blockbuster, starring Sanjay and Madhuri Dixit was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai.

The action thriller film is likely to return either in form of a sequel or a remake. “We are planning something on Khalnayak. We are working on that. We have a few directors on board and will make the announcement soon. We don’t want to reveal much now,” reveals Ghai.

The film revolved around the escape and capture of a criminal Ballu (Dutt) by inspector Ram (Jackie Shroff) and Ram’s girlfriend, Ganga (Madhuri). “We are looking to present the story in a contemporary way,” adds Ghai.

Dutt, who was riding high on the success of Khalnayak in the 90’s, was in for a shock when he was arrested for his alleged involvement in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case. The actor’s conviction for possession of arms was upheld by the Supreme Court this year and he has been sentenced to five years in jail.

Dutt, who has already undergone one-and-a-half years in prison, has been given time till May 17 by the apex court to surrender.
