We have been eagerly waiting for Rajkumar Hirani's next offering, Sanju to hit the theatres. Based on the roller coaster life of Bollywood's bad boy Sanjay Dutt, the teaser of the film itself has given rise to another level of curiosity among us.
The film is slated to release on June 29, 2018
As promised, Rajkumar Hirani shared a fresh poster of the film and Ranbir Kapoor is for sure, a carbon copy of the Khalnayak actor when he was finally released from Pune’s Yerwada Jail in 2016. Featuring Ranbir as Sanjay in his 50s, Ranbir’s intriguing look and intense eyes perfectly encapsulates Sanjay’s persona in real life.
The filmmaker shared the poster and tweeted, “Ranbir as #Sanju! When he came out of Jail in 2016. Watch his complete story on June 29. #RanbirKapoor #RajkumarHiraniFilms @VVCFilms @foxstarhindi.”
"The first reason for choosing him is that he’s a fantastic actor. And the second reason is that he is at the perfect age. I needed an actor who could be 21 (years old) because that is where the film begins. That was the age when Sanju was shooting for Rocky and his drug phase started. And then we have Sanju when he came out of prison (around 56 years). So, we needed someone who could fit that transformation," Rajkumar Hirani said on why he chose Ranbir to play the part.
Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox star studios, the film features Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani in pivotal roles.
