- Manisha and Sanjay Dutt are reuniting after a span of 10 years
- The makers have not zeroed on the title of the film
The actors' collaboration was confirmed by the statement from director Deva Katta, who had also directed the Telugu version of the film. In his statement to Mumbai Mirror, Deva Katta said: "Each character in Prasthaanam has a very strong role to play for which we needed actors with great calibre. When the team came up with the idea of casting Manisha for the part of Sanjay's onscreen wife, it felt like the perfect match. I am looking forward to direct them, especially since they are coming back together after 10 years."
Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala made their first on-screen collaboration with Feroz Khan's Yalgaar, which released in 1992. Since then, the actors have worked together in films like Sanam, Kartoos, Khauff and Baaghi. Sanjay Dutt also had a special appearance in Manisha Koirala and Govinda's 1998 film Achanak.
Zinda was the first film through which Sanjay Dutt had forayed into production. Sanjay Dutt was also the associate producer of Apoorva Lakhia's Shootout At Lokhandwala, which released in 2007. Sanjay Dutt Production had last produced 2011 film Rascals.
Telugu film Prasthaanam had received both critical and commercial acclaim upon release. It has also won three Filmfare awards down South. The remake will also star Ali Fazal as Sanjay Dutt's son and Amyra Dastur will play the former's love interest. The makers have not zeroed in the title of the film yet.
