“I felt I didn’t have the acting chops”, the actor mentioned during the launch. The actor has been gearing up for the role by aggressive workouts and workshops with Sanjay Dutt himself to justify to the actor’s legacy. For me, it was a fan trying to play his icon. “But I don’t think it will work or will have a message to convey”.
The teaser definitely gives us a glimpse us of the actor’s colorful life. Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor have extended cameos in the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film. “So, I don’t want to disrespect Sanjay sir”. I have known him as a family friend.
In one of his interviews Sanjay mentioned that he fell off the dining table after abusing a chemical drug and his father did not even knew what to do with him because he could not understand the cause of his son’s condition. From Rocky to downfall due to drugs, from body building to dating, from gun possession to jail time, from NY life to Yerwada jail life, all have been captured within few seconds of the teaser. I couldn’t understand how can anyone live a life like this.
“It was a screenplay that was sent from heaven”, Ranbir said. Tough luck, Moitra. Music is so taken for granted this days, and in fact, it is a relief that the film has no songs from Dutt’s repertoire re-created! Every look in the poster has a story a tell.
One man. Many lives… When I was working on the film, it was a character I had to play.
“He is a pop icon”. According to reports, Ranbir worked hard to impersonate how Sanjay Dutt is in his real life. There’s far more control while writing a fictional script. Some true stories leave you thinking “did this really happen?” So, it was a different kind of craft that we discovered.
If we had to write it from imagination, we would not have been able to make it. The Dutt biopic will portray Ranbir Kapoor in a totally different avatar. Talking about vulnerability, it is just a case of you have it or you don’t have it.
(But) as an actor you have to express it. Hirani is excited as well as nervous about the audience reaction. There are certain facets to Mr Hirani’s film making which we see repeatedly.
The film is due to be released on 29 June 2018. Sanju is a fearless guy, no actor would open up about his life.
The long-legged beauty will be seen as Madhuri Dixit in the upcoming film. In the video, Sanjay Dutt said, “Mujhe abhi tak vishwas nai ho raha that a film is made on my life”.
