The word means jail in Marathi and the title has been registered both in Hindi and Marathi. Though not much is known about details on the supposed film, there have been reports about the actor scripting a film probably on the same subject.

A well-placed source informs us that the actor is writing a script while being interned in the prison but one does not really know if it is the same film.

Sanjay Dutt production already has debutant director Sejal Shah’s film 'Hasmukh Pighal Gaya' which stars Armaan Ralhan and Anindita Nayar. Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff and Sanjay Dutt are making guest appearance in the film. Meanwhile, a biopic on Sanjay Dutt is in the pipeline too. It’s slated to be directed by Raju Hirani, with Ranbir Kapoor being the first choice to play the protagonist. According to trade buzz, the project will commence after the release of 'pk'.
