Actors Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur are all set to join Sanjay Dutt for the Hindi remake of Telugu hit Prasthanam. Deva Katta, who directed the original, will also helm the Hindi project that goes on floors in the first week of June.
Sanjay will be seen as the patriarch of a powerful political dynasty. Ali will essay the role of Sanjay’s onscreen son, whereas Amyra will play Ali’s love interest. Reports claimed that Ali has replaced Sooraj Pancholi who was initially supposed to work on the film.
Much like the original, the Hindi remake will be a political drama except for a few changes in the script that Deva has incorporated to cater to the pan-Indian audience.
The Telugu film, starring Sai Kumar, revolved around a young man belonging to a powerful political family who wants to expose the network between politicians and businessmen. The film was a huge blockbuster and even won three South Filmfare award .
Prasthaanam also marks the return of Sanjay Dutt to production after seven years, following his last stint with David Dhawan’s Rascals in 2011.
