Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film Bhoomi is in news ever since its announcement and all the Dutt fans are eager to watch Sanju Baba back in action. Directed by Omung Kumar, the film is all about father-daughter relationship and Aditi Rao Hydari will play the role of Sanjay Dutt’s daughter.

After Aditi, another actor joining the cast of Bhoomi is Sharad Kelkar, who is also one of the most popular faces of TV. Sharad won’t be playing any side role in the film, as he has bagged a really important part in it. The actor will play the villain opposite Sanjay Dutt in this revenge drama.

Sharad was last seen on the big screen in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Mohenjodaro as a young Hrithik Roshan’s father and has recently lent his voice to Dwayne Johnson’s character in the Hindi version of Moana.

In an interview with IANS, Omung confirmed to have roped in Sharad to play the antagonist opposite Dutt and said:

Sharad has the ability to emote extremely well and he fits the character of the negative lead that I want in Bhoomi. It is a great opportunity for Sharad to show his menacing side.
