Sanjay Dutt’s biopic has started rolling on the sets and the first shot from the film has been taken!
Director Rajkumar Hirani twitted:
First shot taken now for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. Canning a very funny scene. Excitement in cast and crew.
At first, Ranbir Kapoor looked a misfit to play Sanjay Dutt, because Sanjay is brawny in his looks while Ranbir has got chocolaty appearances. But Ranbir has put some real tough efforts to look like Sanjay.
Well the director has to say that he picked Ranbir for the role because he has the same dopey eyes that Sanjay had during his Rocky days. Also, after gaining weight Ranbir looks so much like Sanjay, that no one will believe his eyes. Hirani said:
He has to put on a few more kilos before losing it all. The first time I saw him in get-up, I thought it was Sanju. I clicked him and sent it across to Sanju who wondered why I was sending him his own pictures.
It is being said that the film will be all dark and twisted. But the director clarifies in negative:
It’s not a film about guns, drugs and the underworld. It’s a feel-good film about a father-son relationship with Paresh Rawal playing Sunil Dutt and Ranbir as Sanju… A buddy film with Sanju’s many friends adding up to one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal.
