Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanjay Dutt biopic: Dia Mirza talks about playing Maanayata in film
Dia Mirza is all set to essay the role of Sanjay Dutt’s wife – Maanayata – in the biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor.
Mumbai: The shooting of Sanjay Dutt biopic is in progress and fans of Ranbir Kapoor are earnestly looking forward to the film which is slated to release in December this year. Moreover, they are also excited to see Dia Mirza essay the role of Dutt’s wife – Maanayata – in the film.
Talking about her character in the biopic, Mirza, who is all set to return to the silverscreen post marriage said, “I am working on Sanjay Dutt's biopic right now, and I am really excited about it. It's wonderful film to be part of, and to be directed by my favourite filmmaker.”
On being asked how easy or difficult is it to portray a real-life character on the big screen, Dia said, “I think for an actor, the work is only as difficult as a written material. With the team so sound and with such a wonderful environment out there, you feel nothing but to put your best foot forward.”
"I would like to believe that whether it is playing a real-life character or fictional character, the idea is to understand what you are doing and the purpose of your presence should matter,” the former Miss Asia Pacific added.
Dia has been a part of one of Rajkumar Hirani’s previous project ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ and has also worked with Dutt in ‘Parineeta’.
The biopic which hasn’t been given a title yet also features Paresh Rawal (as Sunil Dutt), Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarabh.
