Dutt seems to be making good use of his time out, signing directors for his production house 

If sources are to be believed, director Prabhu Dheva has agreed to do a film for the production house helmed by actor Sanjay Dutt, who is currently out on parole.

It has emerged that Rohit Shetty and Rajkumar Hirani too will be directing films with the actor’s production house, albeit those projects will take off later.

Says a source, “Rohit Shetty will be making a film for Sanjay Dutt’s production house and this film will go on the floors in 2016. Right now, nothing else about this project has been finalised — be it the film’s genre, its subject or starcast. But before that, the production company will start work on a film with Prabhu Dheva; work on this project will start sometime next year. Other details about the film are still being worked out.”

It may be pointed out that Sanjay Dutt Productions has just finished work on 'Hasmukh Pighal Gaya', a film by debutante director, Sejal Shah. The source close to the actor adds that Prabhu Deva, who has directed mass entertainers such as 'R...Rajkumar', and 'Rowdy Rathore', has already been signed on by the production company. “Maanayata met him and finalised the deal,” says our well-placed source.
