After his release from the prison in February this year, 57 year-old Sanjay said he would start shooting for Anand's film soon.
"The reason why Sanjay is not doing Siddharth's film is because of the script. After going through the final draft, he was unhappy. The plot reminded Sanjay of several Hollywood flicks. He did not want his comeback to be labelled a rehash of Hollywood films," say a source
"Siddharth has asked more preparation time for the movie as it involves complex action scenes. He is the captain of the ship and it's not wise to hurry him into the shooting process. So in all probability, we will be going ahead with another film of mine first," Sanjay Dutt said in a statement
Sanjay Dutt was released from the Yerawada jail on February 25, after serving his sentence in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case. Mr Dutt, star of films like Munnabhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munnabhai and PK has three films coming up - one with Siddharth Anand, one with Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and the third Munnabhai film
