A little while after he was out from prison, there was speculation about Sanjay Dutt’s next film. Many thought he would make a comeback with a Rajkumar Hirani movie but his best friend was busy with another project. Ironically, the film Hirani is working on is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt with Ranbir Kapoor playing the actor. So after turning down several offers, Dutt finally signed Omung Kumar’s Bhoomi.
Omung Kumar, who directed Mary Kom and Sarbjit, announced the Bhoomi release date on Twitter yesterday. The director also put out the poster which looks intriguing. In the poster, Dutt sports a beard with blood oozing out of his mouth. The film will certainly be a treat for the actor's fans as he was last seen on screen in 2014 (Rajkumar Hirani’s PK).
Aditi Rao Hydari plays the role of Dutt’s daughter in this September 22nd release. Sanjay Dutt was very keen on signing Alia Bhatt for Bhoomi but the actress turned down the film. Bhoomi is a revenge drama which explores the bond between a father and daughter. The Bhoomi trailer should be out soon so keep checking this space to know how it turns out.
