We have been missing to see Sanjay Dutt on the silver screen a very long time. But now, the time has come for his fans to rejoice as the actor will be seen portraying the role of an army officer in his upcoming film. According to the latest rumours, Sanjay Dutt will be seen in ‘Torbaaz’ that will be directed by Girish Malik. In the film, Sanjay will be seen as a strong army officer in the film that is based on child suicide bombers in Afghanistan.
Dutt will be seen as a ray of hope for the children of war in Afghanistan who are made to believe that killing is the righteousness and glory is in an afterlife. The film will be produced by Raju Chadha and Rahul Mittra. The film will release on the silver screen in 2017.
In a statement, Sanjay Dutt said, “I am keen to be a part of films that are highly content driven. I want to create a memorable slate of films for my fans.”
Sanjay Dutt met Mamata Banerjee
About his recent visit to meet Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal, he said, “After what happened to me in the 1993 incident, Didi was the only one who supported me. After that, I always wanted to come to Kolkata and thank Didi. Because no one had supported me back then. Only Shatrughan Sinha and Didi were by my side.”
As per Hindustan Times, Girish Malik said, “We keep hearing about all these killings and suicide bombers across the world. There are kids being trained to be suicide bombers in Afghanistan. Recently, when a young man blew himself up in Turkey, we got thinking. I wanted to explore what really goes behind the making of these?”
He further added, “Rameez Raja (Pakistani cricketer) called me and said we should give some hope to these children who are taught that killing is a virtue. We must show them there are other positive options. And that’s how the idea for this film was born.”
The director also said, “Torbaaz is the story of a man who had lost everything but returns to Kabul with a new purpose in life. He teaches cricket to the kids and children who had been wielding guns till then, experiences the joy of playing a sport. The film is about suicide bombers but it not a depressing one about killings and deaths; it is a ray of hope.”
The filmmaker was also asked about the other cast of the film, to which he stayed quiet and said that he could not then reveal the names of the other cast. But he told that many good actors along with big Hollywood celebrities will join the team.
