Ever before Sanjay Dutt's comeback film Bhoomi with Omung Kumar could hit the theatrical screens, the duo have teamed up for yet another flick titled 'The Good Maharaja'.
The historical film is actually a biopic and has Dutt essaying the role of Maharaja Jam Sahib Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji, the ruler of Nawanagar, a princely state in British India. The King during his reign provided shelter to hundreds of abandoned Polish children during World War II.
Check out the first look poster here along with few more details about this project-
