After ‘Mohenjo Daro’, filmmaker Ashutosh Gowarikar is looking to come up with another historical film. Now, ‘Mohenjo Daro’ didn’t work at the Box Office and it was one of the biggest flops of last year. Well, not much is known about his new project, it is said to be that it will be based on major battles that were fought between 16th and 18th centuries, and that sounds interesting. Ashutosh has given successful movies like ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Jodha Akbar’.
As per the rumours, Gowarikar approached Arjun Kapoor to play the lead role in the movie and it also says that Sanjay Dutt will play in important role. Now, Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt together sound good, they have never been seeing together and it would be great to see them together.
Arjun is right now busy with the shooting of Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’, which stars Parineeti Chopra as the female lead. Arjun will be playing the role of a Haryanvi cop in the movie while Parineeti will portray the role of a corporate lady. Talking about his character, Arjun said, “Playing a cop is considered cool in Hindi films, many actors have done it. But in a Dibakar Banerjee film, a cop is presented as realistic and yet, unique as a person.”
Sanjay Dutt, on the other hand, is busy with the shooting of ‘Saheb Biwi Gangster 3’ directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the shoot is going on in Jodhpur and it will hit the screens sometime around 2018.
Let’s see when we get to see Arjun and Sanjay together if this happens. Ashutosh Gowarikar is certainly one of the visionary filmmakers and makes good historical films. It would be interesting to see what he does with these two actors.
