Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who has earlier directed Sanjay Dutt in “Dus” and “Tathastu”, hopes to reunite with the actor for a project.
Sinha told IANS: “I met Sanju (Sanjay) and we spoke about films. Even when he came back (from jail), he had called me and we had a chat. He was like, ‘Let’s make films when I come back’. I am very fond of him and he is very fond of me.”
“There is a story I have in mind which I will write and that’s something I will make with him.”
Sanjay walked out a free man from the Yerwada Central Jail in Pune on February 25 after serving a 42-month prison term in a March 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case. The actor was sentenced to undergo five years’ rigorous imprisonment for illegal possession of arms.
Sinha last directed Sanjay Dutt in the 2006 released film “Tathastu”. He says Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay are his favourite stars.
“Sanju and Shah Rukh are two of my most favourite people and actors. Every time I start writing something, I have to think of Sanju and Shah Rukh. Then halfway through, I realize that sometime it’s not big enough and not good enough, so it has not happened. They are two of my favourite stars,” the “Ra.One” director added.
Sinha is currently busy promoting his film “Tum Bin 2”, which he has written and directed. “Tum Bin 2” is the second instalment of “Tum Bin”, and is jointly produced by Sinha and Bhushan Kumar of T-Series music label.
