Sanjay Dutt is set to start work on the third Munnabhai film after being released from the Yerawada Central Jail on February 25. Now, Mirror has learnt that besides returning to acting, the 56-year-old also wants to produce some films on his return.
While reports of him being involved in his biopic, to be directed by Rajkumar Hirani and featuring Ranbir Kapoor, are already doing the rounds, the actor is also planning to roll with a film on the life of one of his fellow prison inmates.
“Sanjay is friends with most of his cell mates and when he heard the story of this particular inmate, it touched him to the core and he immediately decided to make a film on it. The man is behind the bars following a family dispute and a significant part of the film will be of him inside prison,” says a source close to the actor.
The actor-producer will take a call on the cast and the director once he returns to Mumbai. “He is definitely not co-writing this one but will be actively involved with the scripting and production. The film will roll this year itself,” adds the source. Sanjay, who was convicted for possession of illeagal weapons in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, has served most of the 60-month sentence.
A regular remission has been granted to him for good conduct and he will be released by February end.
