Sanju: Manisha Koirala believes Nargis has imbibed her soul

by Vibhuti Gupta, Thursday, June 14, 2018

There's so much to say when you begin to talk about the most iconic actor, Nargis. Well, Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju will surely bring us closer to the late actress as Manisha Koirala looks just like the timeless beauty. From Ranbir Kapoor to Paresh Rawal and Jim Sarbh, we have witnessed some major transformations in this movie but Manisha remains to top them all off!

Sanju is set to release on June 29, 2018

Sharing many of her looks as Nargis, Manisha wrote, “Many different looks were tried on.. through various photographs and books and documentary.. here are few for you guys.. peep in to what goes on to creat a look..amongst other things we tried many hair styles.”

Talking more about her role and the way Nargis has tried to imbibe her soul, Manisha said, "This is new to me. I’ve always been a spontaneous actor. But for Sanju, I did a lot of research on Nargisji. The film focuses on Nargis the doting mother who wanted to protect her son from the truth about her health until his first film was released. Unfortunately, she passed away before her son debut film ‘Rocky’ released. This really broke him."

She also said that being a cancer survivor herself, it was traumatic for her to live through it again in Sanju, “To live through the pain, trauma and suffering again... It required a lot of inner strength to play Nargisji. But finally it was all worth it, because Nargis was such an iconic figure. I’ve tried to capture her essence, the core of her being. Just looking like her, or combing my hair the way she did, is not enough. I had to understand her spirit, her soul. Just how much I’ve succeeded, we will soon know.”

Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju is being produced by Vinod Chopra Films. It features Ranbir Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Anushka Sharma Kohli and Jim Sarbh.

The film revolves around the story of Bollywood's bad boy Sanjay Dutt, from his highs and lows of life including his time and jail.
