Mumbai: Dutt, who has served his term in Pune’s Yerwada jail and is now a free man, is ecstatic about making a comeback in films with ‘Bhoomi’ which will depict the relationship between a father and his teenager daughter.

In an interview with Bombay Times, Dutt confirmed this news, “I am really excited about 'Bhoomi' which will be directed by Omung Kumar. It took me long to decide my comeback vehicle. Finally, I chose this film because apart from an impressive and dramatic father-daughter story laced with realistic action, I'll be collaborating with a great team. Omung has made good films. 'Sarbjit' and 'Mary Kom' were impressive. 'Bhoomi' largely dwells on the journeys of a teenager and her father. It's a story I could relate to.”

 

Sanjay revealed that he was offered many action films in the past but since those scripts were hard for him to relate to, he had turned them down. “A lot of action films came my way but they wouldn't have satisfied the actor in me. This movie has so much for the common man to connect with. It just felt like the right project to reboot my career with,” said the ‘Kaante’ star.

The ‘Bhoomi’ team will start shooting in Agra sometime next year. When asked about his preparation for the role, Sanju Baba said, “I've started working out. I'm yet to discuss the look of my character with Omung, but I'm even game for a salt-and-pepper look if he wants one.”

 

The script, which has father-daughter relationship at its heart, will see the superstar drawing experiences from his personal life.

Clearing the rumour about ‘Marco Bhau’ being his return ticket, Sanjay said, “There was an issue with the script and Vidhu Vinod Chopra wasn't too happy with it. So, we've put it on hold for now but once he's satisfied, we'll start shooting.”
