The biopic of Sanjay Dutt is slated to release on June 29. The film features Rabnir as Sanjay Dutt and has ensemble cast of Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Dia Mirza and Manisha Koirala.
Ranbir Kapoor has been receiving immense praise for his powerful act and uncanny resemblance to Sanjay Dutt in the trailer of Rajkumar Hirani's upcoming film Sanju. But film's producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra wasn't in the favour of casting Ranbir as Dutt and wanted Ranveer Singh to play the yesteryear actor in the movie instead.
Speaking to Telegraph, Vidhu Vinod Chopra said, "It was Raju's idea to cast Ranbir. When he told me about Ranbir, I wasn't happy at all. I thought someone else, like Ranveer Singh, could play this role much better. I thought Ranveer had the flamboyance, the emotional depth as well as the ability to change himself completely to play Sanjay Dutt. But Raju was adamant that Ranbir would be perfect."
Recently in a media interaction held on Wednesday, Ranbir was asked about the revelation made by Chopra.
Expressing his delight over the role coming to him, Ranbir said, “I don’t know about his regrets and anything of that kind. But I am really happy that it came into my life. And it came into my life when I was really in need of inspiration. It’s a luxury that every actor finds inspiration in every film they do. This came with that."
Fans of Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt are eagerly waiting for the upcoming biopic Sanju!
