After making his comeback to movies with Omung Kumar’s revenge drama Bhoomi, superstar Sanjay Dutt has decided to make a comeback to production also. Yes, Dutt is returning to production after seven years with the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit, Prasthanam (2010). Apart from bankrolling the movie, he will also play a pivotal part in it along with Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur.
Ali Fazal, who is currently shooting for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Milan Talkies in Lucknow, plays Dutt’s son in the movie, while Dastur will be seen as his love interest. The film will be helmed by Deva Katta, who was also the director of the original movie. Though the basic premise of the movie remains the same as the original, the director has decided to make certain changes in the script so as to attract a pan-India audience.
Along with retaining the director, Sanjay Dutt has also retained the title of the original film for the Hindi remake. With a small change in the spelling, the Hindi remake will be called Prasthaanam. The movie is ready to mount the shooting floor in the first week of June in Mumbai.
