Abhishek Bachchan- Sanjay Dutt in Ramu’s Next

Ramu (Ram Gopal Verma) has two favorite topics; first horror and secondly Underworld don. It has been years when Rammu has come out with any original script and horror films. If, he is, it would be surprising for the industry as the director is making horror flicks one by one. But the director is finally planning to come with something original and new flick, titled, Department based on the lives of encounter cops.

Buzz is that Sanjay will be playing a character, which is loosely based on Sub-inspector Daya Nayak. While Ramu has casted Abhishek Bachchan to play a role that is based on DCP of ATS, Pradeep Sawant. A source says,

Department will explore the much-discussed subject of the relationship between the police and the underworld. The subject of this nexus has been the theme for many films but in Department, it will be portrayed in a more real manner. The film will deal with the forming of the encounter squad and will follow the lives of the encounter cops and their friendships and rivalries.”

Sanjay will work with Ramu after 10 years, last time they worked together in Daud. Ram Gopal Verma said,

“I am working on the story of a film called Department and it’s not based on any existing characters. Nothing has been finalised.”

However Dharam Oberoi, Sanjay Dutt’s business manager, confirmed the news and said,

“All I know is that Sanju sir (Sanjay Dutt) is doing Ramu’s next film. Since Ramu has directly spoken to Sanju I am not aware of the details of his role. The dates will be finalised once Sanju is back in India.”
