Sanjay Dutt set for new multi-starrer comedy
The actor has signed the comedy entertainer Blockbuster, that will be helmed by a debutant director duo
Veteran actor Sanjay Dutt has signed up to feature in a multi-starrer comedy entertainer titled Blockbuster.
The Munna Bhai star says he's always loved doing comedy. "It is the genre that makes me feel at home," he says, adding, "The scale of Blockbuster is huge and multi-starrers always connect well with audiences."
The film will be directed by Ajay Arora and Lovely Arora, and produced by Sandeep Singh.
Singh says it was his "dream" to make a comedy to Sanjay, whom he lovingly calls Baba. "There are few people who can make you laugh like he does. It's not just his timing that is perfect, the expressions he gives are hilarious also. It's wonderful to be working with Ajay and Lovel who bring years of experience and creativity to Bollywood," he says.
The director duo says it's a huge opportunity for them. "All the directors from Rajkumar Hirani to David Dhawan who have debuted with Sanjay have had fabulous success. We are very excited that we will be directing him in our debut."
Blockbuster will be shot almost entirely in Mauritius, and will go on floors in April. It is written by Sajid Farhad, who has earlier worked on Golmaal, Housefull 2 and Dhamaal Returns.
