Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is all set to be seen in a romantic thriller titled Malang. The film is to be directed by debutant Aarambhh Singh and produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and Sandeep Singh and Omung Kumar of Legend Studios.
The search for the leading lady is on. According to a leading tabloid, Sanjay Dutt has recommended Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the film.
The director Aarambh confirmed the news saying, “Yes, Sanjay sir is keen on Aishwarya, we want to replicate their Shabd chemistry in our romantic-thriller. He plays an investigative officer and will require an actress who is physically fit as she is involved in the action too. The idea is not only to keep the audience on the edge of their seats but also give them a new definition of love as Sanjay sir will be seen in a love story after a while.”
The film is set to go on floors this December and will be extensively shot in Varanasi and Shimla.
Talking about the film, Sanjay had earlier said, “I have always believed in the passion of newcomers and fresh talent. I observed Aarambhh since he was the assisting Omung during Bhoomi. When he narrated Malang to me, I looked at Sandeep and said I am hooked. The layering of my character and the plot, the setting of Varanasi has me most excited about this project.”
Meanwhile, Sanjay wrapped the shoot of his comeback film Bhoomi recently. He will also be seen in Torbaaz, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and another project with best friend Ajay Devgn.
