Mumbai: South actor Ram Charan Teja and director Apoorva Lakhia of the new `Zanjeer` are planning to seek permission to meet Sanjay Dutt in prison.

Dutt, who is currently in Yervada jail serving his sentence in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts, has played the iconic Sher Khan in the remake version. The original was essayed by legendary Pran.

The 53-year-old actor was convicted for illegal possession of arms in the case and sentenced to five years imprisonment. He has already spent 18 months in jail earlier.

He is not allowed to meet anyone else except people from his family.

However, if anyone other than family wants to meet him then they need to seek prior permission from court.

Hence, Lakhia and Teja are planning to file an application to visit Dutt in the prison, a statement issued by the makers of the movie said here.

The film stars Ram Charan, Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Raj, Mahie Gill, Atul Kulkarni and Dutt. It is produced by Reliance Entertainment and Prakash Mehra`s sons -- Puneet, Sumeet-- besides Flying Turtle Films and Rampage Motion Pictures. The movie releases on September 6.
