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 led 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.”
To be directed by Omung Kumar, word is that ‘Bhoomi’ promises to portray the charismatic Dutt in a yet-unseen avatar. “This one will keep the audience taut and on the edge of their seats,” says Omung Kumar. “Bhoomi is an emotional, revenge drama that centres around the relationship between a father and daughter.”
Producer Bhushan Kumar says, “Sanjay Dutt’s versatility as an actor will be on display with ‘Bhoomi’. I am personally looking forward to this film.”
Producer Sandeep Singh adds, “Baba believed in the script from the day he heard it and has been the driving force behind this film. Bhoomi is a story that will buckle the trend. We are delighted that Sanjay Dutt is making a comeback through ‘Bhoomi’.”
The film that will extensively be shot in Uttar Pradesh, will go on floors in February and will be releasing in the third quarter of 2017.
