Rajkumar Hirani’s much awaited biopic on Sanjay Dutt has already hit the shooting floors.
Recently, Ranbir Kapoor and Paresh Rawal, who play Sanjay and Sunil Dutt were spotted on the sets of the film in Kamal Amrohi Studio in the western suburbs of Mumbai.
Ranbir, who has gained 12 kg and grown out his hair to play Sanjay from the 1990s, was dressed in a baggy shirt, a waist-coat and dark trousers.
He was soon joined by his screen dad, who bore an uncanny resemblance to the late Dutt patriarch in a crisp white kurta-pyjama and a Nehru jacket.
The day’s shoot kicked off at 9 am and wrapped up around 6 pm. For the sequence, a warehouse had been erected at the far end of the studio which borders the Aarey Milk Colony. The premises is guarded by as many as 20 bouncers.
Looking at the pictures of Ranbir Kapoor, we would tell Sanjay to chill as the Ranbir is perfectly getting the every shade and habits of Sanjay Dutt.
Earlier, Rajkumar Hirani was quoted saying, “We are targeting a Christmas 2017 release. It’s not a film about guns, drugs and the underworld. It’s a feel-good film about a father-son relationship… A buddy film with Sanju’s many friends adding up to one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal.”
The Dutt biopic has an ensemble cast of Sonam Kapoor embodying all the women Sanju loved, Anushka Sharma as a scribe, Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt and Dia Mirza as Maanayata Dutt.
