What Is Sanjay Dutt Doing In Kyrgyzstan?

Actor Sanjay Dutt recently posted on his Instagram account: “Back on the sets of #Torbaaz in Kyrgyzstan!” with photographs from the location in Kyrgyzstan. Sanjay is back in Kyrgyzstan yet again to shoot for his upcoming film Torbaaz where he will be seen essaying the role of an army officer.

Torbaaz will see Sanjay play the character of an army officer who wants to give the children of war a ray of hope. Sanjay had earlier said that he is keen to be part of content-driven films and wants to create a memorable slate of films for his fans.

Torbaaz is based in Afghanistan and is a story about trained child suicide bombers of Afghanistan. The film is produced by Raju Chadha and Rahul Mittra and directed by actor turned director Girish Mallik.


The film had gone on floors in 2017 but according to reports, the film was on hold due to some differences between Sanjay and the director Girish. The cast and crew were in Kyrgyzstan earlier too for the first schedule for the film but Sanjay had returned to Mumbai only after a week’s shoot. There was no news of the film post that. However, things seem to have been sorted now and the cast and crew of Torbaaz are back in action at Kyrgyzstan, where the film is being shot.

What also makes Torbaaz special is that this will be Sanjay’s second film after his release from jail. The first film post his release from the Yerwada jail was Bhoomi, where Sanjay plays a father to Aditi Rao Hydari, which was critically appreciated.

Another reason why Sanjay Dutt fans are looking forward to Torbaaz is that Sanjay has sung a song titled Zinda for the film. He even posted the same on his Instagram account saying: “Music has always been an integral part of my life, through ups & downs. Have you guys heard this amazing song, #Zinda? Such fun times with these boys! I have a surprise for you all in #Torbaaz. More soon… #ThrowbackThursday”

Reports are that he has also penned a song ‘O Meri Aangan Ki Chidiya Hai Tu’, for Torbaaz. The song is said to be one of the five songs Sanjay wrote during his stay in Yerwada jail.

Torbaaz also stars Nargis Fakhri, Fahim Fazli among others. Sanjay Dutt fans have a lot more to look forward to other than the Sanjay’s biopic Sanju!
