The one of the most awaited movie of this year (2018) is actor Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, Sanju. The movie is getting praises from both Bollywood and audience similarly. The lead actor Ranbir Kapoor is also been getting praises, due to his portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in the Sanju trailer and teasers that got released.
As per the reports, it seems that when Rajkumar Hirani (director of Sanju) decided to make a biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life and wanted Ranbir Kapoor to play the role of Sanjay Dutt but producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra wanted Ranveer Singh to play as Dutt instead. Vidhu Vinod Chopra said that not everyone was happy with the casting but after they started working on the film, he realised that he had to eat his words.
Taking to a leading Bollywood portal, Vidhu Vinod Chopra said, “It was Raju’s idea to cast Ranbir. When he told me about Ranbir, I wasn’t happy at all. I thought someone else, like Ranveer Singh, could play this role much better. I thought Ranveer had the flamboyance, the emotional depth as well as the ability to change himself completely to play Sanjay Dutt. But Raju was adamant that Ranbir would be perfect,” Chopra added, “When we started shooting and Ranbir became Sanjay Dutt, I had to kind of eat my words. I think I can best sum this up by saying that Ranbir has become Sanjay Dutt both in swagger and soul.”
