Sanjay Dutt has had more than five releases this year. He is also producing a Marathi film Baba, for the first time. After watching a special screening of the film along with his family and the entire team, the Munna Bhai actor got nostalgic.

The actor was teary-eyed and emotional as the film brought back memories of his father, Sunil Dutt who passed away in 2005.

Talking about the film, Sanjay Dutt said, “I had not thought about the film when I had posted about my father on social media. For all the kids, the father’s importance is always high. The film’s name was suggested by the director of the film and I am pleasantly surprised by the title of the film. We are not just restricted to content-driven films, yes content is very important but also entertainers are very important”.

In June, Sanjay Dutt had dedicated the film to his late actor-politician father who was widely loved and regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation.

Talking about the film from the producer’s perspective, Sanjay Dutt said, “In regional and mainstream, we will make all kinds of films, content-driven as well as entertaining. Content is very important but we are not restricted to it and at the same time entertainer cinema is what audiences’ want to watch. So we will make that kind of Cinema as well”.

With multiple films lined up, Sanjay Dutt is one of the busiest actors in the business. Big budgeted films like Shamshera, Panipat, Bhuj: The Pride of India, Prasthanam, Sadak 2 among others make a list of his upcoming films.
