Mumbai: Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra says that he, along with writer Abhijaat Joshi, is working on the script of “Marco” — which will be actor Sanjay Dutt’s comeback movie — and that the project will go on the floors in the first half of next year.
At the closing ceremony of the 18th Jio MAMI Film Festival with Star on Thursday night, Chopra said: “We are writing the script of ‘Marco’. We don’t make a movie till our script is ready. We are very very hopeful that we will start shortly. The moment the script is done, hopefully in March, April, we will start shooting.”
Sanjay will be essaying the role of a Goan in “Marco”, which will mark the directorial debut of Chopra’s sister Shelly.
Chopra, who was present at the event along with Sanjay and Joshi, added: “Even Sanju knows this that we never make a film in a hurry. Therefore, the day our script is ready, within a week, we will be starting the shooting.”
