Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will make his comeback with director Omung Kumar's upcoming film Bhoomi. "I have been looking for scripts that went beyond my screen persona. I wanted to do something vulnerable yet powerful. Bhoomi is an emotional and sensitive drama that explores the relationship between a father and daughter," Dutt said in a statement.
