Watch: Sanjay Dutt reveals why he choose Omung Kumar's Bhoomi as his comeback film
Ahead of the release of Bhoomi, Firstpost caught up with Sanjay Dutt, who was more than happy to answer our curious questions.
One of the most obvious ones, at the heels of his release, is — Why Bhoomi and not Munnabhai 3, as the latter already has a trailer out?
Dutt reveals, "Munnabhai 3 is still on the scripting stage. Right now it's on hold. Bhoomi is a film I really wanted to do as a comeback, especially because I believe in women empowerment. I wanted to talk about what a rape victim [sic] from a small family goes through living in a city like Agra"
Speaking about Omung Kumar, the director of the film, Dutt says, "Omung is a great director, he's tried something different with Bhoomi. It's totally a commercial film."
Was politics ever an option for a comeback, we ask Dutt? He is quick to respond, "Not really. Two family members is enough. Cinema is a medium where I can reach out to many people, and send out a good message."
