After playing the menacing Kaancha Cheena in Agneepath, Sanjay Dutt is all set to play yet another exciting persona for Soham Shah's next

News is that Sanjay Dutt will portray a 1970’s Gujarat based Robin Hood don, a lean and mean character unlike any seen onscreen till date. The first shooting schedule is now underway in Jaipur, Rajasthan where a huge set has been put up for the mammoth big-budget venture. According to sources, the team has left no stone unturned to create spectacular action sequences marking Dutt’s entry in the film.

A massive coal mine with tunnels, chimneys and trains tracks have been erected to match the ambiance and power of 1970's Gujarat's landcape and director Soham Shah says he could see nobody else but Sanjay Dutt in this role.“The character has a lot of power, and I wish to portray Sanjay Dutt in lines of his esteemed father Mr. Sunil Dutt saab in a very earthy and 'Mitti Se Juda Hua character'. I wouldn't have made this film if Dutt saab wouldn't do it, as only someone like him can carry this kind of character,” says Soham.

Along with Sanjay Dutt, the film also stars Vivek Oberoi, Humaima Mallick (of Bol fame) and Paresh Rawal. Slated for a December 2012 release, the movie is based on the Gujarat underworld and will be shot on a start-to-finish 50 days schedule in Jaipur. Apart from this schedule the songs in the movie will be shot in Mumbai.
