And, now the look of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt from Munna Bhai MBBS has been revealed. The most awaited film of Bollywood with each passing day is increasing our excitement. Ranbir's incredible similarity to Sanjay in the Munnabhai 2.0 teaser is something that left everyone's eyes wide open. He is looking every inch similar to him.
Recently, director Rajkumar Hirani took to Twitter shared a teaser of his look and wrote: Hope you have as much fun watching this scene from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S as I had in recreating it after 15 years 😊🙏🏻
Sanju is majorly based on the relationship between a father and son. Vidu Vinod Chopra says that he was amused to know that the tears in ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ scene where Sanjay asked his father’s forgiveness were for real. Chopra says, “I was standing there on the set of Munna Bhai and I had no idea they were actually living that scene.”
Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra in an interview with a leading daily, Chopra said, “When he told me, I was like, ‘What’s there in Sanjay Dutt’s life that merits being made into a film?! It’s better you make a film on my life… how I left Kashmir as a young boy and struggled when I came to Bombay.’ (Laughs) I thought Raju and Abhijat (Joshi, Sanju’s co-writer) had lost their minds!”
But, when he got to know the details of his life, he said: “When he (Hirani) sat me down and started narrating all that had happened in Sanju’s life, I was stunned! At first, I thought it was hogwash… that Sanju was somehow not telling Raju the truth, but when we started researching all that he’s said — from the 308 girlfriends he had to how he begged on the streets of US for the money to buy a bus ticket — we realised that everything he had told us was true!”
Sanju is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani and stars Ranbir Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza. It is produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios. This is the very first time when Rajkumar Hirani and AR Rahman, the two legends are gearing up.
