As the producer and promoter of Sanjay Dutt Productions, Maanayata Dutt’s vision is very clear, according to a press release. “Backing good content across genres and languages, as good stories have a universal appeal,” she was quoted as saying.
“Baba,” which opened to positive reviews in India when it released in August, is a story about the relationship between a father and a son.
The last release of Sanjay Dutt Productions was “Prassthanam,” a powerful story set against the backdrop of Indian politics.
Going forward, Dutt will ensure that the company develops a slate of stories that are entertaining as well as deeply humane, added the release
