Recently, a photo of Sanjay Dutt in a royal attire of that of a king was doing the rounds on social media. After Bhoomi, the actor has collaborated with director Omung Kumar for The Good Maharaja, which will be their second story together. The 58-year-old plays Maharaja Jam Sahib Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji, the ruler of Nawanagar, a princely state in British India. So, has Omung signed Sanjay up for a three-film deal with the actor, a la Yash Raj Films? “No!” answers Omung, laughing. “The story was with Sanju and I didn’t want to let go of this opportunity. I took the reins of the film as a director immediately.”

The Good Maharaja, which will be made by the Polish government, will be shot in the European country, informs Omung. He says, “Hopefully, we will be sanctioned subsidy from the government, as we are supposed to be shooting in its locations. In fact, it gave even the film title. It even has a chowk after him.” Talking more about the film, he says, “We haven’t finalised the female lead role as yet. The film will go on floors only one-and-a-half years later — we still have time. It’s a huge film. Since this film is backed by the Polish government, we are not even shooting in Jamnagar. We are shooting in Poland itself.”
