Mumbai: The much-awaited teaser of Sanju, a biopic on Sanjay Dutt, starring Ranbir Kapoor and directed by Raj Kumar Hirani is out and it's fabulous.
The teaser opens with a shot of Sanju stepping out of the Yerwada Jail. And the first glimpse of Ranbir in the teaser as Sanju showcases the actor's passion for his craft. Ranbir has not just sported Dutt's look but has also absorbed his body language to the T.
The teaser takes us through the timeline which shows Sanju as a twenty-two-year-old talking about drug addiction to a matured young man in his late twenties who works on his physique to build a body to die for; the teaser compiles significant and contrasting times the actor has seen in life - a luxurious life abroad and the darkness within the four walls of a prison.
Watch the teaser to admire Ranbir's performance:
The multi-starrer has Paresh Rawal on board to play Sunil Dutt (Sanjay's father) and Manisha Koirala to essay Nargis (Sanjay's mother).
Also starring Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Boman Irani, Vicky Kaushal, Karishma Tanna and Jim Sarbh, the film will narrate the tumulous life of Dutt until his release from the Yerwada Jail in Pune a few years back.
Here's how the makers have described the film on YouTube: "Few lives in our times are as dramatic and enigmatic as the saga of Sanjay Dutt. Coming from a family of cinema legends, he himself became a film star, and then saw dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not be a terrorist.
Sanju is in turns a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of one man’s battle against his own wild self and the formidable external forces trying to crush him. It depicts the journey of a man through everything that life can throw at him. Some true stories leave you thinking “did this really happen?” This is one such unbelievable story that happens to be true. (sic)."
The film has been produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios.
