It was a big responsibility to direct Dutt's comeback: Omung

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Filmmaker Omung Kumar said it was a dream come true for him to direct Sanjay Dutt in his comeback film but it was also a huge responsibility.

The director said he had a great time working with Dutt and he is happy with the final cut of the movie.


"We went with three scripts and he loved 'Bhoomi' and asked me to direct. It was a big responsibility to direct his comeback film. It is a dream come true for me. I hope I have done justice to the film," Omung said during a press conference here.

The movie deals with a father-daughter relationship and the director says human bond is always the core of his stories, even when he is making a biopic.

"My previous two films ('Mary Kom' and 'Sarbjit') were biopics but were also relationship based. A true story generally touches my heart.

"This is a commercial film but it again deals with a father-daughter and the bond they share. I wanted to show this story on a larger scale and Baba (Sanjay Dutt) was the most accurate person to be in this film," he said.

Produced by Omung, Sandeep Singh and Bhushan Kumar, "Bhoomi" will hit the screens on September 22.
