Sanjay Dutt’s Productions's next, Hindi remake of the Telugu hit film Prasthanam, is set to bring back the pair of Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala to the big screen after 10 years.

The two first acted together back to 1992 in the film Yalgaar. Following Yalgaar, Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala acted in various films together, like 1997's Sanam, 1999's Kartoos and Achanak, 2000's Baaghi and Khauff, and finally 2008's Mehbooba.

Director Deva Katta talked about the project, saying, "Each character in Prasthanam has a very strong role to play for which we needed actors with great caliber. When the team came up with the idea to cast Manisha Koirala to play onscreen wife of Sanjay Dutt, it was a perfect match in my mind. I am looking forward to direct them both especially since they are coming back together after 10 years."

Produced by Sanjay Dutt’s Productions, Prasthanam is scheduled to go on floors on 1 June and will be extensively shot in Lucknow. The film also stars Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur.
