More from the world of Entertainment: “She will play the daughter… Her role is quite interesting and good. But before the shoot she will have workshops,” sources said. Sayyeshaa recently made her Bollywood debut with Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay, which did really well at the box-office irrespective of having a festive weekend release and a major competition from Karan Johar’s directorial Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Legendary actor Dilip Kumar’s grand niece Sayyeshaa Saigal will play the role of Sanjay Dutt’s daughter in revenge drama Bhoomi, which marks the comeback of Sanjay Dutt. The film will be made under the banner of Bhushan Kumar led T-Series, Sandeep Singh and Omung Kumar’s production house Legend Studios. It will go on the floors next year and will be shot extensively in Uttar Pradesh. By: PTI | Mumbai |

Sayyeshaa Saigal appeared in Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay. Bhoomi is an emotional, revenge drama that centers around the relationship between a father and daughter. Omung’s last outing as a director was Sarabjit, which was critically acclaimed but did not do well at the box-office. She will most likely start shooting next year in January.
