NO RUNNING AROUND TREES FOR SANJAY DUTT
The film Malang, starring Sanjay Dutt, may have a romantic plot, but debutant director Aarambh Singh says that he won’t make Dutt the typical romantic hero. The actor will play his age in the movie. “It’s a romantic film with Sanjay sir but that doesn’t mean I will make him run around trees. We are not showing him as a young lover boy. He is playing his age. Love and romance can happen at any age. We will give a new definition to love through this film,” says Aarambhh, who was assistant director for the film Bhoomi. He adds that he narrated the story of Malang to the actor while they were shooting for Bhoomi. “We only had Sanjay sir in mind for this film. In the film, his character will have various shades but when he meets a woman cop he introduces himself as a simple man.” The director says the hunt is on for the leading lady. The film, which will go on floors in December, will be shot mostly in Varanasi and Shimla.
