Family and friends of Sanjay Dutt are getting ready for the end of his incarceration in October this year.

And director Umesh Shukla of OMG Oh My God fame has already signed Dutt for a film that he will make as soon as Dutt is released.

Earlier it was Raj Kumar Hirani who was supposed to helm Dutt’s first-post incarceration film. Hirani was also supposed to helm a bio-pic on Sanjay Dutt. According to sources that plan is now on hold indefinitely.

Confirming these developments Umesh Shukla says, “I met Sanjay Dutt two days before he returned to prison. And he loved the subject that I narrated to him. We now need to work out the details after he is released.”

Shukla says the film he plans with Dutt is not an actioner. “It is a human drama, not about muscles but emotions.”

Shukla will make the film next year. “I’ll first make 102 Not Out where Mr. Bachchan will play a 102-year old man. Only then will I make the film with Sanjay Dutt.”
