National Award winning Director Omung Kumar is all set to take the seat behind the cameras for Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film Bhoomi. The film will be made under the banner of Bhushan Kumar T- series and Sandeep singh and Omung Kumar’s production house legend studios. Confirming the news, actor Sanjay Dutt said, ” I have been looking for scripts that went beyond my screen persona. I wanted to do something vulnerable yet powerful. Bhoomi is an emotional and sensitive drama that explores the relationship between a father and daughter.”
The actor who would be facing camera from long gap is reportedly back in action on January 29. According to reports, Sanjay feels that 29 is his lucky number and that’s the reason he chose the date to don the greasepaint and face the cameras.
“Bhoomi” explores a father-daughter relationship. Dutt is likely to play father to Sayyesha Saigal, who debuted with Ajay Devgan’s “Shivaay” last year. Sanjay has been working hard on his physique for the role. During his time at Pune’s Yerwada Jail, he had learnt new ways of maintaininghis fitness levels by adopting a new exercise regimen. He still works out for two hours in the gym everyday.
Director Kumar confirmed the news, ” The first schedule of the film will get underway in Agra. It is a month start-to-finish schedule. As a director, it is going to be a challenge for me to work on a tight schedule, but that’s what excites me about filmmaking. Teaming up with Sanju is going to be awesome. His intensity on screen is just amazing. He is back as a new person, so he is going to start with a clean slate. It will be good fun to direct him.”
