One of the highest paid directors of Bollywood, Rohit Shetty has agreed to direct a film for Sanjay Dutt Productions. When Manyata Dutt told Sanjay about this, he specially wrote a letter to Rohit. Talking about Rohit, a source told a leading daily, "Sanju had worked with Rohit in All The Best, and they bonded almost immediately. Manyata has been trying to rope in big directors for their banner. She approached Rohit who immediately said yes. When Sanju heard about his confirmation, he wrote him a long emotional letter thanking him for supporting him in his time of need."
Recently, the Supreme Court rejected Sanjay Dutt's curative petition. Sanjay, who surrendered on May 16 2013, will serve a three and a half years jail term (out of his five-year sentence). He will be released from the prison around November 2016.
