Sanjay Dutt unveiled the trailer of his comeback film ‘Bhoomi’ on Thursday and was accompanied by wife Maanyata, director Omung Kumar and co-star Aditi Rao Hydari at the event. The makers of the film revealed that the 58-year-old actor insisted that the trailer be released on August 10, which is the birthday of his eldest daughter Trishala.
Sanjay Dutt chose to release the trailer as a surprise for his daughter, since the film is important to him, it marks his big screen comeback after serving jail, and also because the film’s story revolves around the bond of a father and his daughter.
Sanjay Dutt agreed that this was a conscious move to launch the trailer today. At the event, the actor said, “Ya, I think it was. It is an important day for her, and we all miss her. We all wish she was here, but… It is her birthday, and it was the best day for the trailer to be launched.”
But what he did not expect is a surprise from Trishala herself – she wrote a heart-warming letter addressed to the Khalnayak actor, which was played as a voice note at the event in Mumbai. Sanjay Dutt appeared to be visibly overwhelmed and teary-eyed after the surprise.
Trishala is the Dutt’s daughter from his first marriage to Richa Sharma. Sanjay Dutt and Maanyataa are parents to twins Shahraan and Iqra.
The note said,
“My Dearest Papa Dukes,
It feels so nice to know that you’ve chosen to launch the trailer of Bhoomi on my birthday as a surprise! It gives me so much joy to know that you’ve chosen a film based on a father-daughter relationship as your comeback film as well. I’m really proud of you Dad. You are stronger than you know. I’m blessed to be apart of you.
I love you forever

August 10 ? thank you everyone for the lovely wishes, messages, calls, texts, etc. I couldn’t be happier right now (thank you God ??)
