MUMBAI: Having lived the life of a politician before his big net a dreams were cut short, Sanjay Dutt is now all geared up to bring his political experience on-screen.
All set to play the lead in his first political thriller ever, the actor will be bringing aboard his experience for a film that is touted to revamp his public image.
Just returned to Mumbai from a long shoot in Cape Town the actor has set aside all his film projects to act in a film by director Mani Shankar of ‘Mukhbir’ fame.
The untitled film based on the present political equation in the country will have no songs and will just have three main characters who never meet in the flick.
As for the plotline the film like all political flicks will bring forth the laundering of trillions of dollars from India and being placed in unknown locations the world over.
For his role Sanjay Dutt along with Irrfan Khan will play two government agents from different walks of life who come together to raise Rs 32,000 crore in two hours.
What’s more interesting is the fact that Kangna Ranaut, who teams up with Dutt for the first time, never comes face to face with the actor.
Speaking to reporters, Mani said, “I’m under a confidentiality clause. But the film is partly based on what I saw and heard when I was on the staff in the Prime Minister’s office between 1994-1995. As part of his advisory team during my travels all over the world with the PM, I heard things that never left my mind. I knew some day I’d make a film about what I knew from the whispers in the corridors of power.”
