Music has always been an integral part of my life, through ups & downs. Have you guys heard this amazing song, #Zinda? Such fun times with these boys! I have a surprise for you all in #Torbaaz. More soon... #ThrowbackThursday
The original film starring Sharwanand and Sai Kumar among others was applauded for its storyline but collected only around Rs 6 crore at the box office. Considering it was made within a budget of Rs 4 crores, it was a success. However, many felt it could have traveled more far commercially.
The Hindi remake of ‘Prasthaanam’ not only has Dutt playing a lead character, but also features Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur in prominent roles. The Hindi remake will be helmed by Deva Katta who directed the Telugu project as well. A family drama with a political thriller, it is one of the most touted releases of 2019.On the acting front, Dutt has an absolutely interesting line up of films. He will be a part of the third edition of the ‘Saheb. Biwi aur Gangster’ franchise. His union with Tigmansu Dhulia has got all of us rejoicing. He is also locked for Ashutosh Gowariker’s historical period flick ‘Panipat’. Like him in comedy? Wait for ‘Total Dhamaal’ to roll out in theatres. Not to forget, he is a part of ‘Kalank’ too, which reunites him with Madhuri Dixit!
