Sanjay Dutt liked my script: Umesh
National Award-winning director Umesh Shukla says he has a film for actor Sanjay Dutt, who is due to be out of jail next month. The OMG: Oh My God! director added that the actor has already expressed interest in the script, which is high on entertainment and has a good message.
Sanjay, who is serving the remainder of his five-year sentence in Pune’s Yerwada Central Jail in a case of possessing an illegal weapon, will be released on February 25. Shukla is looking forward to it as he has the perfect script for the Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. star. Will it be the actor’s comeback film?
“Let’s see. Sanjay liked my subject. We will get to know the status of the film once he returns home.
First of all, he needs to be with his family. That’s his priority. As far as the film is concerned, he certainly liked my script, which I narrated to him last year,” said Shukla.
“The script suits him the best. It’s content-oriented subject. No other actor has been finalised. First we will lock his dates, then we will talk to others,” he added.
While keeping other details under wraps, Shukla revealed that the movie will have “entertainment with a good message”. He will begin the project once he completes his next directorial 102 Not Out, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Paresh Rawal.
