The role of Paresh Rawal in Sanju first offered to Aamir Khan but the actor has refused to play the part of it and now filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani revealed the actual reason behind not playing the character of Sunil Dutt in Sanju.
When Hirani was asked what Aamir's reaction, he said: "Aamir is a friend. Whenever I write a script, I just go to him and narrate it to get a reaction from him. So I narrated this script also. "
However, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani recently revealed why he didn't accept the role of Sunil Dutt in Sanju and said, "Not with the intention of asking him to play any role. He reacted interestingly to the script and liked it. Then just out of greed, I asked Aamir if he would play Dutt saab's role? He took it seriously and gave it a thought. He said let's meet after a while."
"So I met him the next week again, then he showed me Dangal and said" 'look I'm already playing an older man's role. And if after Dangal, my next film has me play an older man again, then people will stop giving me a young man's role!' That was a valid argument. Finally, we had Pareshji (Rawal) playing Dutt Saab."
The director often picked the topic that is funny but Sanju somewhere is serious and covering all the ups and downs of Sanjay Dutt's life. "Each film's DNA is different. In films, there are element of drama, emotion and laughter. Abhijat (Joshi) and I, we always try to have LCD (Laugh, Cry and Drama) in our films but the percentage of those elements can be less or more so, in this film, we have tried to present more drama and emotion."
"I will never say my films like 'PK' and 'Lage Raho Munnabhai' were a comedy film because that film had a strong message to tell. In that film, also there was humour but there was a lot of drama and other emotions as well so, in this film there is a lot of emotion but the audience will not get feeling that it is less in humour".
