A few moments back, we were left quite stunned by a few pictures of a nearly unrecognisable Ranbir Kapoor that have gone viral. Wait, did I say unrecognisable? Actually, he was looking nearly like Sanjay Dutt when the actor had finally completed his jail term and was released from Yerwada Jail. We don’t know how the movie will turn out to be, whether it will be another Azhar or not, but one thing we can say for sure, the makeup artistes and Ranbir Kapoor are doing a fine job in recreating Sanjay Dutt’s look in the film. Except for a fewer grey hairs and too much of a twirl on that moustache, Ranbir Kapoor is nearly looking like Sanju Baba.
Not just his look, even his blue shirt is something that Sanjay Dutt was seen wearing on the day of his release. So how exactly will this entire scene pan out? For that, we have to go back last year on February 25, 2016, when the actor came out of the jail as a free man after completing 42 months in jail for his alleged possession of arms, which made involved in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case. He later took a chartered plane from Pune to Mumbai with his family.
Sanjay Dutt’s good friend Rajkumar Hirani is directing the biopic, which is scheduled to release in December this year. Paresh Rawal and Manisha Koirala play Sanjay Dutt’s parents, the late Sunil Dutt and Nargis respectively. Dia Mirza plays Sanjay Dutt’s current wife Manyata Dutt. The other cast members include Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal.
