‘One man… many lives’ is the tagline for the teaser of the much-awaited biopic of Sanjay Dutt named as “Sanju”. Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film is based on the life of veteran actor Sanjay Dutt, with Ranbir Kapoor portraying the role.
The teaser kicks off with Ranbir Kapoor as the titular ‘Sanju’ coming out of jail in one of the many of his avatars of that controversial actor. From his drug addiction days to terrorism charges, the teaser gives a peek into different phases of Sanjay’s life.
The teaser trailer of the biopic has released today and naturally, everyone is beyond excited to see the final product. Rajkumar Hirani, who is the director of the film, said in an interview with a daily that Sanjay Dutt gets overwhelmed whenever he watches scenes from the film and has refused to watch it before the biopic is complete. In fact, Hirani revealed that the Dutt has talked about everything in his life, which Hirani thinks is a pretty brave thing to do.
From the first shot of the trailer itself, you will find yourself adjusting your eyes to make sure you’re watching Ranbir Kapoor, and not Sanjay Dutt, in the teaser trailer. The similarities are uncanny, and full props to Ranbir Kapoor for carrying off the character so well.
The film also stars Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh and Boman Irani.
