FREEDOM, which is all set to star Sanjay Dutt and Madhavan in the lead roles, is a multi crore affair which would be backed by a major production house. However, director Vivek Agnihotri (CHOCOLATE, DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL), is unwilling to go on record and confirms that in due course of time; the producers would come on the forefront. Meanwhile plans are already in place to begin the film's shoot in March-April time period.
"The dates are already locked while the leading lady should be in place soon as well", says Vivek who gave Tanushree Dutta a break in CHOCOLATE", "However, I am not too keen on a new face because quite some time would be required to be spent in grooming her. 'Freedom' is going to be difficult film for any actor and it would makes sense to have a heroine who comes with good acting potential."
FREEDOM is a political thriller that promises to give a blow by blow account of modern day India during last three decades and begins from the period of emergency.
Says Madhavan who is riding high on the success of 3 IDIOTS, "I am keen to get started on FREEDOM soon. Vivek's vision of FREEDOM is rather exciting and I am raring to go. It should be wonderful to get into a dramatic affair like this."
Continues Vivek, "Characters played by Sanjay Dutt would be present from start to finish of the film and would remain a part of the narrative through all the decades. Same holds true for Madhavan whose character will also see a major transition from the era gone by to the current times."
