Sanjay Gupta made his directorial debut in 1994 with Aatish: Feel The Fire, starring Sanjay Dutt. They have appeared in eight films together, including Kaante, Zinda, and Shootout At Lokhandwala. Now, after 14 years apart, Sanjay Gupta and Sanjay Dutt are cooperating once more. The filmmaker and actor are reuniting for the sequel to their neo-noir action thriller from 2006, Zinda.

“Sanjay Gupta has been planning to work with Sanju for quite a while now as their last collaboration was Shootout At Lokhandwala back in 2007. After mulling over several ideas, they’ve zeroed in on Zinda 2 that they will also jointly produce under their banners White Feature Films and Sanjay Dutt Productions respectively. The sequel, however, will have a completely different storyline and is in no way related to the first part,” an industry source informed PeepingMoon.

It has also been reported that John Abraham has been approached by the filmmaker to play the second lead, but the actor hasn’t responded to this offer yet. “Things are not clear post the second lockdown. Gupta had earlier approached Abhishek Bachchan but he turned it down, and then he went to John Abraham whose date diaries are packed this whole year. However, the work is in progress and Gupta will set shooting timelines once the second lead is locked,” the source added.

Zinda, which starred Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham, Lara Dutta, and Celina Jaitly and was directed by Sanjay Gupta, is remembered as Sanjay Gupta’s darkest film to date. It revolved around a man who was held prisoner captive for 14 years for no apparent reason, and is suddenly released with only four days to figure out why.
