Sanjay Dutt’s biopic has become the cynosure since the release of the teaser. Rajkumar Hirani is known for his practical, fresh yet unconventional approach in his films. Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic titled Sanju fables the journey of Sanjay Dutt’s real and reel life. Ranbir’s breathtaking transformation into Sanjay Dutt has left us confusing him for a doppelganger.
Aamir was approached to play the role of Sunil Dutt, the late actor and father of Sanjay Dutt.
While everybody is excited to watch the movie, there is one thing people are oblivious to. The inside scoop says, Aamir Khan was approached to portray the role of Sanjay Dutt’s father, Sunil Dutt who was a seasoned actor. Aamir’rs role would’ve added another feather to this movie’s cap.
‘Thugs of Hindustan’ actor was supposed to be an essential part of the film by playing Ranbir Kapoor's on-screen father in the film but Aamir turned down the role that was then offered to Paresh Rawal.
Because we are still unaware as to why Aamir Khan declined the role especially because he has been seen in previous Rajkumar Hirani’s films, here is the actual reason why.
During an interview with Outlook, Raju revealed, "Aamir is a friend. Any script I write, I bounce it to him. When I narrated Sanju to him, he loved it and said, ‘Main bhi kuch karta hoon (I should also do something in it).’ Then I said, do this (Sunil Dutt’s role). But he was already doing the role of an elderly man in Dangal (2016) around the same time.”
This is why Aamir had to pass over the role of Sunil Dutt. In the meantime, the teaser of Sanju is grabbing all the attention from fans. The movie will hit the theatres on 29 June.
Sanju film co-stars Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt, Dia Mirza as Maanayata Dutt and Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal will also be seen in important roles.
