New Delhi: Ranbir Kapoor's one of the most ambitious project 'Sanju' is the talk of the town. The actor prepped up hard for portraying superstar Sanjay Dutt in the biopic and the result is for everyone to see. At least from the trailer and promos, we can easily say that this looks like Ranbir's career best so far.
Recently, superstar Salman Khan while promoting his latest flick 'Race 3' was asked about the biopic to which he said that he wondered why Sanjay Dutt wasn't playing himself in the last 7-8 years of his life in the movie. He felt that the no other actor could do justice to it. However, he further said that director Rajkumar Hirani is a sensible filmmaker and that he is sure that he has made a good film.
Now, according to Pinkvilla.com, Ranbir was asked to react on the same during his recent interaction with the media. The report quotes him as saying, “It has never happened that a person played himself in his own biopic. This destroys the effect of a character. I knew that I will be compared to Sanjay Dutt and that is why I have tried my best to do justice to his role.”
“Whether people see me in 40-year old Sanjay Dutt's avatar or 20-year old, they should feel that they are watching an artist who is playing Sanjay Dutt. It is correct that I cannot become a second Sanjay Dutt,” he said.
The film stars Ranbir in the titular role of superstar Sanjay Dutt. The actor has had many ups and downs in his personal and professional life which will be presented in the 70 mm format before the audiences.
'Sanju' has been directed by Rajkumar Hirani and has an ensemble star cast with the likes of Ranbir playing the titular role of Dutt. It stars Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Karishma Tanna, Jim Sarbh to name a few.
Expectations are high from this one as Ranbir has put in a lot of hard work to completely transform himself into looking like the real-life Dutt. The teaser and trailer received a positive response and now all eyes set for the big release.
The film will be hitting the screens on June 29, 2018.
