The teaser of Sanju, which is a biopic based on the life of Sanjay Dutt, was released on the internet today. Ranbir Kapoor plays Sanjay Dutt’s role and is nailing it. Ranbir Kapoor looks oddly like Sanjay Dutt, but he is not able to come up with the deep voice of Sanju Baba.
The one-and-a-half-minute teaser was enough to impress us and the amount of effort that Ranbir has put in for this role is something very brave. The teaser shows Sanju Baba narrating all major incidents that happened in his life. It covers everything starting from his addiction to drugs at the age of 22 to his appointment with justice in connection with the Mumbai blasts, “308 girlfriends” (he says in the teaser), his days spent in prison and more. Sanju is intended to cover all sides of the “extraordinary story of a man who has lived many lives”.
The movie is written and directed by none other than Rajkumar Hirani. It will feature additional casts with some big names like Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani. Most of the members of the shared cast praised Sanju teaser, but only Ranbir was seen answering everything in the short video.
Ranbir already said few months ago that the main aim was not to focus only on Sanju Baba’s look when preparing for the biopic. Due to advanced technology, make-ups can be very easy but to show the deeper side of Sanjay Dutt, it is important to focus on both positive and negative sides of the actor. The entire team did deep research for the film, which included more than 200 hours of footage viewing. The movie is all set to release on 29 June 2018.
