As we previously mentioned, the films KGF 2 and Leo catapulted Sanjay Dutt into the spotlight as a beloved and in-demand character artist for filmmakers in the south. The next project to feature this former hero in an antagonist role is none other than the upcoming film of pan-India superstar Prabhas, which is being helmed by Maruthi.
Referred to tentatively as "Raja Saab," this film already boasts a star-studded cast including three leading ladies: Malavika Mohanan, Nidhie Aggerwal, and Riddhi Kumar. Additionally, esteemed actors Satyaraj and Zarina Wahab are set to play pivotal roles. Recently, Maruthi and his close friend SKN traveled to Mumbai to conduct a look-test for Sanjay Dutt, and from what we've heard, the Bollywood star's surprising transformation is a sight to behold on the screen.
While Prabhas is currently occupied with the filming of Kalki 2898 AD in Hyderabad, reports suggest that he will allocate an additional week of his schedule in December for Maruthi's Raja Saab. This film, which heavily relies on visual effects, is expected to receive Prabhas' attention after the release of Salaar on December 22nd.
