Amazing performing artist Dilip Kumar's grandniece Sayyeshaa Saigal will play the part of Sanjay Dutt's onscreen little girl in revenge drama Bhoomi, which is additionally the 57-year-old performer's comeback film. Mr Dutt will come back to the silver screen with the Omung Kumar's next film Bhoomi. Sayyeshaa recently made her Bollywood debut with Ajay Devgn's Shivaay. Sources close to the production team revealed that the makers found Sayyeshaa appropriate for the role of the daughter.
"She (Sayyeshaa) has-been signed for the film as she was well-suited for the part. She will play the little girl. Her part is very intriguing and great. She will no doubt begin shooting next year in January. In any case, before the shoot she will have workshops," sources said.
Bhoomi is an emotional, revenge drama that revolves around the relationship between a father and little girl.
Earlier this month, Mr Dutt told reporters at a media association: "I have been looking for scripts that went beyond my screen persona. I wanted to do something vulnerable yet powerful. Bhoomi is an emotional and sensitive drama that explores the relationship between a father and daughter."
"This one will keep the audience tight and on the edge of their seats," said the executive.
Maker Sandeep Singh included, "Baba (Sanjay Dutt) put stock in the script from the day he heard it and has been the main impetus behind this film. Bhoomi is a story that will clasp the pattern. We are charmed that Sanjay Dutt is making a rebound through Bhoomi."
Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi will go on the floors one year from now and will be shot broadly in Uttar Pradesh.
The film will be co-created by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, Sandeep Singh and Omung Kumar's Legend Studios.
