Sanjay Dutt is making his comeback with the film, Bhoomi. After spending years in jail and getting rid of the tag of ‘deshdrohi’ — something that makes Sanjay a relieved man — his comeback vehicle is about a father-daughter relationship. On Friday, at a press conference in Agra, when indianexpress.com asked Sanjay about one similarity between his screen daughter Aditi Rao Hydari and the real one, Trishala Dutt, the actor instead focussed on talking about one important difference. “I would have broken her (Trishala’s) legs if she would have chosen acting but with Aditi, I’m not doing so,” Sanjay said in a lighter vein. The answer made everyone curious that why would Sanjay, who has been in the industry for several years, and whose parents were accomplished actor would not want his kids to continue his legacy.

When asked, the actor said that he has invested a lot in getting Trishala into a ‘safe’ job, “I have invested a lot of time and energy to put Trishala in a good college. She is doing well and works with FBI. Now, she is doing fashion designing. And to be in Hindi cinema, she should know the language first. And it’s not easy to be an actor. It looks glamorous but it’s a difficult job.”
Sanjay is coming back to films after a long gap, but he said he hasn’t forgotten a bit about acting and his love for it. “I haven’t forgotten how to act. This is a comeback I wanted. My experience with industry has been fantastic. When I was in jail, I missed being with my family, which is an industry. I will say I am back with a bang.”
Talking about Sanjay’s dedication, the film’s assistant director said, “Sanjay sir was more excited about the shoot. He is unwell but he didn’t let that come in between the shoot of the film. If we call him at 7 am in the morning, he would be present with his make-up on. At times, we would be so late. He is always excited about the film, which is inspiring.”
