This has to be the casting coup of the year. Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, who are part of two franchises already, MUNNABHAI and DHAMAAL, would now be seen in a dramatic thriller titled ZILLA GHAZIABAD. This is not all as the film would also feature Vivek Oberoi who earlier locked horns with Sanjay in SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA earlier.

Confirms an industry source, "Yes, the film is happening for sure. It deals with politics and mafia as prevalent in Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh). Though there have been quite a films set in mafia of Mumbai and some have even explored the underbelly of Delhi, not many films have stepped in this part of the country. ZILLA GHAZIABAD would be reflecting the current socio-political situation there."


While Vivek has already been confirmed for the part, Sanjay is also more or less confirmed though he is yet to sign on the dotted line. While the two have grey shades to them, the interesting fact is that Arshad plays an out-and-out negative role in the film.

"I can't talk much about the film as it is yet to go on floors. However, what I can say is that though I am playing a baddie for the first time in my career," says Arshad who made his debut with TERE MERE SAPNE (1996) close to a decade and a half ago, "I won't say that other two are any white either. No one is absolutely positive and faraq sirf thode kam-zyaada ka hai. Woh kam bure hain, main thoda zyaada hoon."

CHECK OUT: Arshad going the Salman way

While he is taking light of the situation, the makers confirm that Arshad is playing an absolute mean character in the film, something that would shock the audience. As for Sanjay and Vivek, they can well be expected to ignite fireworks all over again with their trademark brooding act.

Interestingly, the film would be produced by Vinod Bachchan who knows a thing or two about North India, as seen in his last hit TANU WEDS MANU which travelled across Kanpur, Lucknow, Delhi and Kapurthala. With GHAZIABAD as the setting, the film should explore a new territory. To be directed by newcomer Anand, the film's shoot begins in July.
