Sanjay Dutt is back!
It’s been a long time coming, but the legendary actor Sanjat Dutt is back!
58-year-old Sanjay Dutt is gearing up for his comeback film Bhoomi, which will hit the screens on 22 September. Directed by Omung Kumar, Bhoomi is an intense social drama about a father-daughter relationship with Aditi Rao Hydari playing Dutt’s daughter.
Sanjay Dutt has revealed his reasons for waiting to get back to work.
“It was my decision to start after a gap. I wanted a break of about six months. I wanted to be with my family, my children. The industry has always stood by me but I wanted to come back with the right film. I heard many scripts, and Omung also narrated few stories to me, but I loved Bhoomi. It is an entertainer, a commercial, action film and this is the genre I want to be in. The film’s about the trauma of a lower middle class family. It has a message but it is not preachy. I play a tough father who gets his daughter justice.”
“We were shooting in Agra and as soon as I entered the sets, all the crew members welcomed me with a huge round of applause. I am passionate about films and acting, it’s my life. I was choked on seeing cameras, lights. Every day, while in jail I would get anxious about getting back to movies when I am out. I remember telling Omung to keep a light scene on the first day. So we shot that scene where my ‘daughter’ is applying dye in my hair. I gave my final shot in the second take,” said Dutt.
Bhoomi will be out in cinemas on the 22nd September 2017
