Director Milan Luthria of Taxi No 9211 has teamed up with Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan for his action thriller Bheed, which he says is inspired by a true incident.

"The film is based on a true story. It is about four characters - Sanjay Dutt is an outlaw and Ajay Devgan is a cop chasing him down. And there are two women also. But we haven't finalised any actress yet," said Luthria, who is planning to shoot the film in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

"The film will have a rugged look and be shot in hazardous terrain," said Luthria. The film will be made under the banner of Ajanta Arts, started by Sunil Dutt.

"Sanjay wanted to re-start his father's company. This film is very close to his heart."

Right now, Luthria is working on the script and getting the crew together.

"We will have an international crew. We are planning to begin the shooting sometime in Feb or March 2007."

The idea for the film came from Sanjay, who gave him the idea when he went for the voiceover for Taxi No 9211.

"He wanted me to direct it because he thought after Kachche Dhaage I had a feel for films with action, music and romance. Raw looking films appeal to him."

Sanjay and Luthria go back a long way. They first met on the sets of Mahesh Bhatt's Gumraah.

"There is a lot of understanding between us. He is very supportive as an actor. And now that I am directing a film for him, I think it's a great way to keep our friendship going," added Luthria, who roped the star in for Deewaar.
