After casting Sanjay Dutt in his upcoming film, Department, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is planning another project with Dutt.
Varma plans to make a film inspired by Steven Spielberg’s Munich and calls Dutt as “our last action hero”. Dutt’s role will be modelled on Hollywood actor Eric Bana in Munich and the Agneepath actor will pump some iron to get into a sinewy shape to shoot for the espionage thriller.
Confirming the ambitious Rs 90 crore project, Varma said: “Yes, Sanjay Dutt and I are doing another film after Department. I truly believe he is our last action hero. So, I am going to cast him as a one-man army on a global mission. Munich is the film I’ve in mind. But it would be not just a cerebral thriller."
"I want Dutt doing a lot of daring action. You see, in Department, he plays a plain clothed cop who has to blend with the crowd. So there’s little room for heroics. I want to pump up the action level dangerously in our next film. So, it would be Munich meets Rambo.”
Sanjay seemed excited about the film too. “Ramu and I have discussed the project we’re doing next. It’s very exciting.” The film will go on floors later this year.
