Add to more, when Ranbir Kapoor was announced to play this biopic, the excitement truly surpassed!
Let’s check out some of the interesting facts about this highly-anticipated movie!
More than Biopic
To our surprise, Sanju is more of a father-son story than a mere biography. And Paresh Rawal lays the role of Sanjay’s father Sunil Dutt in the film.
Romance is just secondary.
The movie will not focus upon rumoured affairs of the Munnabhai as the director didn’t wish the movie to be about gossip. “We keep telling wrong choices make good stories and the character of Sanju is the fitting example”, Hirani added.
A film within film
As we know that the Munna Bhai series is a turning point for Sanjay Dutt’s career, reenacting Munna Bhai scenes with Ranbir will be amazing experience. Since Munna Bhai M.B.B.S is the only film where Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Dutt worked together, the scene from this movie will surely sketch out the bond between the duo.
Ranbir or Ranveer?
Lately, it was learnt that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra wanted the Padmavat antagonist Ranveer Singh to essay the role of Sanjay Dutt for Sanju because he believed that Ranveer has excellently rakish with an emotional depth to transform himself into Sanjay Dutt. But it was Rajkumar Hirani’s idea to cast Ranbir Kapoor and for this decision the producer was not happy, initially. It was only after witnessing Ranbir’s stunning performance which made Vidhu Vinod Chopra well-pleased !
