New Delhi: Amitabh Bachchan is one actor from the film industry who is known to laud young talent for the portrayal of a role on the big scrceen. And the latest from the industry to win his words of praise is none other than Ranbir Kapoor. 

Amitabh recently happened to watch the teaser of Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor and he was mighty impressed by it. According to a Bombay Times report, after seeing the teaser, Amitabh could not believe that it was Ranbir all along doing the act not Sanjay Dutt. "So you guys got Sanju to do that shot?" Big B asked, according to the report.

Now, this is considered a huge praise for the 35-year-old actor. 

The movie will see Ranbir portraying the role of Sanjay Dutt. 

The film has Dia Mirza as Sanjay's wife Maanyata Dutt, veteran actors Manisha Koirala and Paresh Rawal playing Sanjay's parents - Nargis and Sunil Dutt, Sonam Kapoor as Tina Munim, Jim Sarbh as Salman Khan among others. 

In addition, Karishma Tanna and Vicky Kaushal will be seen in supporting roles in the film.
