Time and again there have been applauds, rewards and criticism whenever someone tries to make a biopic. Most of the criticism is faced by the actor who depicts it. This time around a movie based on Sanjay Dutt's life is coming soon. Ranbir will be playing the lead. He got to hear many praises and criticisms too.
Salman Khan has a different opinion. He said that Sanjay Dutt himself should have acted as no one could do it better than he himself.
Salman was curious to know why Sanjay Dutt isn’t playing himself in the last 7-8 years of his life in the film. Though Salman made a valid point here, actor Ranbir Kapoor revealed why it was never a solution.
In his recent media interaction Ranbir was asked about the comment Salman has left on this. He said, “It has never happened that a person played himself in his own biopic. This destroys the effect of a character. I knew that I will be compared to Sanjay Dutt and that is why I have tried my best to do justice to his role.”
“Whether people see me in 40-year old Sanjay Dutt’s avatar or 20-year old, they should feel that they are watching an artist who is playing Sanjay Dutt. It is correct that I cannot become a second Sanjay Dutt,” he further added.
Ranbir also interacted with his fans on Twitter through his #AskRanbir chat revealed how tough it was to play a character as intriguing as Sanjay Dutt. When a fan asked him ‘Being an actor, how tough it is to play a biopic of someone and do things how that person did ?’ He responded saying, ‘Hey Marvelis! I must confess that it’s terrifying and exciting at the same time!’
Ranbir will be seen in Sanju, Brahmastra, Shamshera and his next with Ajay Devgn.
