The first edition of the franchise was released in 2011 and consisted of an ensemble cast including Jimmy Sheirgill, Randeep Hooda, Vipin Sharma and more. It was a strong box office success as well. Rather, the second part failed to live upto people’s expectations. We are to see if Sanjay Dutt’s presence makes the third part an exceptional success!
On the professional front, Dutt now awaits the release of his comeback vehicle ‘Bhoomi’ helmed by Omung Kumar. Rrvolving around the bond between a father and a daughter, the film stars Aditi Rao Hydari as Dutt’s on-screen daughter. It is set to release in September 22.
