Actor Sandeep Kulkarni turns producer with `Dombivli Return`

Panaji: Marathi actor Sandeep Kulkarni, who starred in Hindi films like `Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi` and `Traffic Signal`, is set to make his debut in Bollywood as a producer with upcoming socio-psychological thriller `Dombivli Return`.

Kulkarni will also star in the film, which he has been co-produced with Mahesh Parash of Avdhoot Entertainment.

`Dombivili Return` has actress Rajeshwari Sachdev opposite Kulkarni and is being directed by Mahendra Teredesai. Kulkarni said the film is not a sequel to the acclaimed Marathi hit `Dombivli Fast`, which incidentally had the actor in the lead role.

"`Dombivli Return` is not a sequel to the 2005 Marathi movie. My film about the common man today is a middle class story and a socio psychological thriller which has cost me around three and half crores," said Kulkarni, on the sidelines of IFFI.

"I shot the film in just 28 days. Earlier, I had made a Marathi film `Premsutra` and this film is my debut as a producer in Bollywood. I paln to tap the corporate houses to release the film in a big way," he added.

`Dombivli Return` also stars Amol Parashar and Hrishikesh Joshi in lead roles.
