Sanjay Dutt will be seen playing the role of Maharaja and the makers of film have released the first look. In the poster, Sanjay is seen in a royal attire.

Talking about the veretan actor’s look in the movie, Omung Kumar says, “We have photographs of the Maharaja for reference. We will take certain creative liberties but are trying to keep things as authentic as possible. Sanjay looks regal and it was his idea to do this role and I wanted to direct it because it's a superb story”.

Sanjay Dutt will also be seen in Omung Kumar’s “Bhoomi”, which is slated to release on 22nd September 2017.
