It’s an open secret that actor Sanjay Dutt is going to star in the Hindi remake of the 2003 Tamil hit, Saamy, along with actors Prachi Desai and Prakash Raj. And although the film looks set to go on the floors with almost the entire cast and crew in place, the makers are still waiting for Amitabh Bachchan’s nod.
“Despite trying for a few weeks now, I haven’t been able to meet Mr Bachchan since he is unwell. I have no option but to wait,” says director KS Ravikumar. “I have written the role keeping him in mind, and no one else fits the bill so perfectly. I hope the meeting happens in the next two or three weeks.” As a result, no shooting date has been decided yet. “Until we are sure about Mr Bachchan’s answer, we can’t put a fixed date as to when our film will kick off,” says Ravikumar, who makes his Bollywood debut with the film.
