Sanjay Gupta hasn’t forgotten Khote Sikkey, will make it after SOAW

Even though Khote Sikkey promises to be an on-screen action thriller, seems like there is quite some drama taking place off screen at the least. The multi-starrer which has been in the news for over a year has still not gone on floors and though there have been murmurs around the film changing hands between Sanjay Gupta and Sanjay Dutt, it seems like former may just about manage to sneak ahead.

"Though there was no official announcement made per se, Sanjay Gupta had declared his intentions to make Khote Sikkey as his comeback affair last year", says a close associate, "Five years after Zinda, this was one subject that interested him most and he was even said to have approached a bunch of actors to feature in the multi-starrer."

However, it was around the same time when a bombshell was dropped on him once declaration came in that his 'once partner and friend', Sanjay Dutt, had decided to hand over the reins of Khote Sikkey to his current favourite Soham Shah.

"Khote Sikkey was conceptualised when both Sanjays were thick buddies and jointly owned a production house. Post the fallout, Sanjay Dutt is said to have taken Khote Sikkey along with him as well and edged out Sanjay Gupta in favour of Soham Shah", says an industry source.

Though there was no subsequent word from any parties and half the industry seemed to be in contention to do the film due to its requirement of over half a dozen key protagonists, it seemed like Khote Sikkey had firmly gone on a back-foot. While Sanjay Dutt got busy with his other production Rascals, Sanjay Gupta started finalising affairs on Shootout At Wadala. However, looks like this isn't the last that one is hearing about Khote Sikkey since the film is all set to resume around middle of next year.

"Yes, Gups is eventually going to make Khote Sikkey. It is a subject really close to his heart and he won't let it go", says a friend, "In fact everything right from the cast as well as music has been locked. He is just waiting to make a formal announcement."

When contacted, Sanjay Gupta wasn't willing to go into much detail. All he commented was, "Yes, Khote Sikkey is on hold but it would go on floors immediately after Shootout At Wadala. In terms of scale, Khote Sikkey is a much bigger film than what I have done till date. It is going to be ultra modern and high tech."
