While his collaboration with Siddharth Anand for an action film didn’t seem to get through, the actor has now signed a film which will be a remake of the Marathi film De Dhakka.
As this brings together yet another interesting collaboration of Sanjay Dutt with friend and filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar, the actor also expressed his excitement about being a part of the film. Revealing that it is a laughter riot about a disjointed family, Sanjay added that several emotions that are a part of this comedy appealed to him.

He also appreciated his skills as a director maintaining that he has always managed to extract good performances from his actors.
Confirming the news producers Sandeep Singh and Omung Kumar said, “We are really proud to come into an association with Maheshji as producers and are very confident that De Dhakka‘s remake in Hindi will impress the audiences and critics equally as it did in Marathi”.
Speaking on this association director Mahesh Manjrekar added, “I met Sanju after a long while and I realized he has matured a lot. Looked fresh and fit. Initially I was contemplating working with him as I wanted to work on something different, a kind of film which both haven’t done before, something that would surprise the audience. Then De Dhakka came and i felt it was the perfect subject. Sanjay will have the family audience and youth rooting”.
While Sanjay Dutt’s first release will be Marcau Bhau along with Rajkumar Hirani, the actor will soon start prepping for the Hindi remake of De Dhakka, which will be produced by Omung Kumar and Sandeep Singh.
