Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn in Santoshi?s crime thriller

MUMBAI: Firoze Nadiawala?s The Outsider, directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi, has been postponed for lack of proper permission to shoot at the wanted location in the US.

Rather than allowing Amitabh Bachchan?s dates to go to waste, Santoshi has designed a new mega project. He will soon embark on a crime thriller under the same banner that will also feature Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt in stellar roles.

Explaining the overnight shift in plot location and project Santoshi said, "The other project, The Outsider, was not working out on time. It has become very difficult for Indian filmmakers to shoot in the US. Rather than allow the dates to go to waste, I put forward the new project. It?s a thriller about a vigilante. And yes Devgn and Dutt are also part of the project."

The shooting starts in the next couple of months to coincide with the dates that Bachchan had allotted for the other project.

This is the first time that Santoshi would be working with Sanjay Dutt. They were to collaborate on a historical about the Partition. But since period films don?t work these days, the project had to be shelved.

Remarked Santoshi, "The responsibility of doing justice to Amitji and Ajay, whom I?ve worked with earlier, and Dutt with whom I?m working with for the first time, is the same."
