Omung released the look of his English-Polish production, titled The Good Maharaja, with a regal looking Sanjay with all the royal finery.

According to sources, the filmmaker has been working on this script for a year-and-a-half and he has even put together a book on it. Sandeep and team have done a look test as well with Sanjay Dutt. They infact met Polish government officials last year to work out shooting permissions.

About the look, Omumg says, “We have photographs of the Maharaja for reference. We will take certain creative liberties but are trying to keep things as authentic as possible. Sanjay looks regal and it was his idea to do this role and I wanted to direct it because it’s a superb story.”

Producer Sandeep Singh says, “Sanjay Dutt’s image has the aura of royalty. We have done look tests and we are very excited with the outcome. Baba is very excited about this film and this will be a big budget film that will span across continents.”
