Ranbir wants to play Sanjay DuttThere have been speculations about a biopic on Sanjay Dutt, and that Ranbir Kapoor might be the actor to star in it. However, speaking to the media about it for the first time, Ranbir says he and director Rajkumar Hirani are indeed discussing it. Talking about his proximity to Sanjay, he also recounts how the senior actor, too, would have wanted him for the role, reports Hindustan Times.
‘To portray Sanju sir on screen is a big task. And it comes with huge responsibility. He’s had a very entertaining, engaging, and a roller-coaster kind of life. We (him and Hirani) have had an informal meeting. But I think Raju sir himself hasn’t decided if he wants to do it or not. It will be exciting to work with Raju sir, and to portray Sanjay Dutt on the big screen,’ Ranbir said in an interview to Hindustan Times.
Ranbir also conveyed that he couldn’t talk to Sanjay Dutt on the matter yet as he was in jail. Ranbir sounded nostalgic when he said, ‘When I was growing up, Sanju sir would tell me, “If anybody makes a film on my life, I would like you to play [me].” That’s always been a big compliment. I love him dearly. So it will be very exciting.
Ranbir playing Sanjay Dutt would not only be special for the viewers but also the film fraternity itself as the Kapoors and Dutts have known each other closely for years. This is why Ranbir is relishing at the opportunity of playing the larger than life character of Sanjay Dutt on screen. Working with Rajkumar Hirani has also been a long cherished dream of the flag bearer of the Kapoor family.
