Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film ‘Bhoomi’, directed by Omung Kumar of Mary Kom and Sarabjit fame, has wrapped up today in Mumbai, where the cast and crew was shooting for the climax of the film. The film which is a revenge drama, explores the relationship between a father and daughter played by Sanjay Dutt and Aditi Rao Hydari. This is the first time the two actors are working together. The film also stars Shekhar Suman and Sharad Kelkar.
Here are some pictures from the sets of the film, including some from the last day of shoot :
The film which was initially set to hit screens on August 4, has now been pushed back to September 22, as the makers did not want a box office clash with any other stars. This would also ensure the team has enough time to promote the film too. The new release date was confirmed by the producers Bhushan Kumar and Sandeep Singh in a statement. They said “We are extremely happy to have our film finally release on the 22nd of September this year. Sanjay insisted that he did not want his film to clash with anyone else. He believes that given the kind of hard work that goes into making a film, it can’t boil down to unhealthy competition at the box office”. Director Omung Kumar added, “Sanjay has given his best performance till date and I am glad that we are increasing the anticipation for the audiences”.
Bhoomi is Sanjay Dutt’s first film that he has shot ever since he completed his jail term. The film has been shot in Agra and Chambal, apart from Mumbai. Take a look at the teaser poster.

Incidentally, Aamir Khan’s ‘Secret Superstar’ was supposed to release on August 4 this year, but even that film has now been pushed back to Diwali.
All the Sanju baba fans are waiting to catch their star on the big screen again, never mind the slight delay.
