Then the trailer of this much-awaited movie was released in April, which was liked a lot by the fans of both Sanjay and Ranbir. A few days back, the first song of the movie ‘Badhiya’ was released to which Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan have lent their voices.

There were rumours circulating some days back that Rajkumar Hirani has picked a new face to depict the character of Maanayata, Dutt’s wife in the movie and also that this fresh face looks pretty much like Maanayata. But, it proved to be rumours only and the trusted sources then confirmed that it is Dia Mirza who is playing the character of Maanayata in the movie.

This new poster also has Ranbir looking melancholic in it. Rajkumar Hirani, the director of Sanju tweeted, “And here comes Dia Mirza as Maanayata, someone who stood by #Sanju through thick and thin.”

Dia has an important role to play, which can be one of the trickiest and toughest roles she has played so far in her movies. Knowing the calibre she has, the fans expect a stellar performance from her.
