As per the reports in a leading Indian daily, director Aarambh Singh might have stroke a bonanza with his film Malang’s casting, which is supposedly to have Sanjay Dutt and Rani Mukerji together on the silver screen for the first time. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Sandeep Singh and Omung Kumar. The hunt for the female lead is currently in progress but as per the sources, Mukerji is the forerunner for the part and that the film which will be shot in Varansai and Shimla, will release in December.

“Sanjay, Aarambh and the producers of Malang are keen to work with Rani since they’ve never been paired on the big screen. Dutt plays an investigating officer who falls in love with a lady cop. Rani will need to look extremely fit for the part. Sanju has a lot of respect for her and has been wanting to work with her for long. But, she has not signed a film outside of husband Aditya Chopra’s banner in the last few years.”

Singh said, “I want to make every film with Rani because I don’t think there is anyone else with her kind of talent. Sanju and she will look great on screen and will make for a couple that people will remember for years. We are keeping our fingers crossed and hope that she says yes.”

A spokesperson of Rani Mukerji said that makers of the film had approached the actor for the role, “Omung has reached out to YRF and requested for a meeting (with Rani).”
