First look poster of Sanjay Dutt starrer Prasthanam is out. Remake of a Telugu film of the same name, Prasthanam starrs Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Ali Fazal, Amyra Dastur and Satyajeet Dubey.
Sanjay Dutt shared the film’s poster on his official Twitter handle. He wrote, “Meet Baldev Pratap Singh and his family! Catch the #Prasthanam teaser in cinemas now.”
In the poster, Sanjay Dutt, Ali Fazal, Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala and Satyajeet Dubey appear together in what looks like a big haveli ( mansion).
Manisha is dressed in a pastel-coloured saree, while Sanjay Dutt is seen in a shirt and waistcoat. Jackie Shroff bears a hit-man look in a khakee kurta-pyjama.
The poster also bears a tagline that reads, “Earn the legacy.” It also carries a tagline in Hindi that reads, “Yahi gadi virasat se nahi, kaabiliyat se milti hai.”( This throne cannot be inherited, it can be won with merit)
Directed by Deva Katta who also directed the Telugu film, Prasthanam is regarded as one of the best films of modern era. A political action drama, the parent film was also praised for the depth of text and lead actors’ performance.
Earlier, Prasthanam had courted controversy after makers were sent a legal notice by Shemaroo Entertainment for not having remake rights of the film.
Sanjay Dutt is essaying the role of Baldev Pratap Singh while Manyata Dutt is producing the film under Sanjay S Dutt Productions banner.
