Ranbir as Sanjay Dutt in Biopic
Ranbir Kapoor will be playing Sanjay Dutt’s role in an upcoming film and for this Ranbir have to put on some extra weight. Ranbir is chosen for the role because he looks quite similar to Sanjay. Sanjay had a well-toned body after he got over his drug addiction and that is why Ranbir must also shape his body to portray him.
In this context Rajkumar Hirani said, “It wasn’t necessary that we have to find an actor who resembles Sanju. Still, you look at Sanju’s picture from Rocky (1981) days and Ranbir’s. They both have a similar ‘stardom’ on their face. Also, if you look at Ben Kingsley (who played Mahatma Gandhi in Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi; 1982), he has no real resemblance with Gandhiji. Unlike Gandhiji, Kingsley is tall.”
Film’s script is being worked on for the last six-seven months and now according to RajkumarHirani the story of the film has started to take shape now.
