The actor is on a signing spree. After signing Ahsutosh Gowarikar’s Panipat, Sanjay Dutt has now signed his next comedy film. The actor will be seen as the lead in producer Sandeep Singh’s next titled Blockbuster. Debutant director and Sanjay’s close friends Ajay and Lovel Arora will be directing the film.
Sanjay Dutt says, “I have always loved doing comedy. It is the genre that makes me feel at home. The scale of Blockbuster is huge and multi-starrers always connect well with audiences. I am really excited about working with Sandeep again.”
Sandeep Singh adds, “It was my dream to make a comedy with Baba. There are few people who can make you laugh like he does. It’s not just his timing that is perfect, it’s the expressions he gives that are hilarious. Wonderful to be working with Ajay and Lovel who bring years of experience and creativity to Bollywood.”
Director duo Ajay and Lovel Arora says, “This is a huge opportunity for us. All the directors from Rajkumar Hirani to David Dhawan who have debuted with Sanjay have had fabulous success. We are very excited and even more so because it’s Sanjay that we would be directing for our debut.”
Blockbuster will be shot almost entirely in Mauritius. Written by hit franchise writer of Golmaal, Housefull 2 and Dhamaal Returns fame Sajid-Farhad, the film promises to be a total family entertainer. It goes on the floors in April.
