Sanjay Dutt to play Chhatrapati Shivaji

In his long tenure, actor Sanjay Dutt has played varieties of role but he has never enacted the role of a mythological character. First time, he will be seen projecting the role of a brave figure. He will play the role of brave Marathi emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji. Sanjay is quite excited about the role and it is said that he is doing an extensive study on the subject.

 A source close to the project informs, "We can’t see anyone except Sanjay Dutt as the brave and flamboyant Maratha warrior, galloping across the screen, sword in hand. We want someone who comes close to Russell Crowe’s character in Gladiator or Robin Hood."

The big venture is supposed to be directed by Soham Shah, He says, "All I would say at the moment is, I can never make a film without Sanjay Dutt. He’s my mentor, guru, guide and support. If in spite of Kaal and Luck I’m still directing a project as big as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, it’s because of the trust and support of Mr Dutt. At the moment, I’m getting ready to direct a film for Sanjay Dutt Productions. Then I’ll start work on the Shivaji project."

The film will be made in bilingual, Hindi and Marathi.
