Sanjay Dutt Productions which is all set to produce the Hindi remake of Telugu hit Prasthaanam, will have the film go on floors on the birthday of Sanjay Dutt's mother Nargisji. The actor who will be seen playing one of the lead roles in the film was keen on starting this new venture on the day of his mother's birthday, marking it to be a milestone for the film.
The film which is a family drama with a political backdrop will be shot in Lucknow and also stars Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur. Deva Katta, who directed the original movie, will also helm the Hindi project. The banner is getting back to producing films after seven years with this anticipated film which had created a lot of buzz during the Telugu release.
Earlier reports suggested that Sooraj Pancholi will play Sanjay Dutt son's role but he opted out from the role. The original Telugu film revolved around a young man who belonged to a powerful political family but wanted to expose the network between politicians and businessmen.
Sanjay Dutt's production venture last time came up with 2011 film 'Rascals' that went disastrously at the box-office. However, Dutt is pretty busy bagging many Bollywood projects like 'Kalank', 'Torbaaz', 'Shamshera', 'Panipat', 'Total Dhamaal' and 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3'.
