‘Sanju’, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is a biopic of Sanjay Dutt’s roller-coaster ride on the tracks of life.
It is rare and ironical that Bollywood does not base its plot on film stars and their lives. Even though the industry has been intrigued by sportspersons, athletes, NGO workers and criminals, film stars themselves find little space to see their own life on the screen. However, it’s Rajkumar Hirani who breaks this accord. In Hirani’s upcoming film ‘Sanju’, Ranbir Kapoor portrays Sanjay Dutt’s character along with the support of many talented actors like Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Tabu, Boman Irani and Paresh Rawal.
Apparently, Sanjay Dutt had gifted Ranbir a Harley Davidson on his birthday, which proves that the two artists have a very cordial relationship. On the other hand, Ranbir is looking impressively similar to Sanjay Dutt. The teaser shows Ranbir’s transformation in multiple avatars at different stages of Sanjay Dutt’s life, narrating the phases that the star went through. The story progresses with Sanjay Dutt’s entry into the films, to his open affair with drugs and his episodes with criminal offences. The trailer suggests, how a single man could have so many lives and portray so many different characters.
Hirani had earlier worked with Sanjay Dutt in the Munnabhai series and is very fond of the actor. ‘Sanju’ is a very unbiased take on the life of the star who had a colourful story throughout his career. It will be interesting to Hirani directing a film after four years of gap. His last film was ‘Pk’ which was a blockbuster hit. The ace director first broke the story about his upcoming release on Twitter.
The film is directed by Rajkumar Hirani, produced by Vidu Vinod Chopra and Sahil Khosla and cinematographed by S Ravi Varamn. The music of the film collaborates artists like Rohan, Shantanu Moitra and Amaal Malik.
