After a long span of seven years, Sanjay Dutt is returning to production with the remake of the 2010 Telugu hit, ‘Prasthanam’. The actor will also star in the film in the role of the lead protagonist along with Ali Fazal as his son and Amyra Dastur as Ali’s love interest. Deva Katta, who was also the director of the original movie will be directing this film as well. He has made certain changes in the script with the perspective of catering the film to a pan-India audience. The name of the movie is retained with a small change in the spelling now known as ‘Prasthaanam’. It is a political drama that is scheduled to go on floors in the first week of June in Mumbai.
