Sanjay's writing a film?
Sanjay Gupta's Kaante is one helluva proposal.
It stars Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Sunil Shetty and Kumar Gaurav. What's more, it marks the big screen debut of Mahesh Manjrekar, director of Astitva, Kurukshetra and Nidaan.
Singer Lucky Ali also plays a role in this story of six criminals. Actually, they are five criminals and one of them is a cop posing as a criminal.
Sanjay Gupta plans to shoot the entire film in a single 50-day schedule in the US, beginning August this year. "It is for this reason that I've waited over a year," explains Gupta, who is currently finalising a complete Hollywood team of technicians, besides the supporting cast of Indian and Hollywood actors.
Partnering Gupta in the project is Sanjay Dutt, who is as excited about it as his partner and buddy 'Gups' is.
Sanjay Gupta has not only made a booklet for the film, he has also shot a promotional trailer even before the actual shooting has begun. While negotiations are on with a couple of corporates (including a Hollywood production company) to co-produce the film, Sanjay Gupta has already concluded deals for music, overseas and all non-theatrical rights with Zee.
More interesting is Gupta's revelation that Sanjay Dutt is involved not just as a producer but also creatively in the screenplay writing. Sanjay Gupta reveals, "Anurag Kashyap and I are writing the screenplay, but Sanju's inputs have been so much that we just might add his name in the credit title, too."
