Ranbir Kapoor completely impersonated Sanjay Dutt in the movie. From the physical resemblance to the facial expression, he has nailed it. Everyone was left speechless when the trailer of Sanju was released. During the Race 3 promotional events, Salman Khan was asked about the trailer of Sanju and the Race 3 actor tossed some words that did not please Ranbir Kapoor. Now the director of the movie, Rajkumar Hirani came up with an epic reply to Salman Khan’s statement.
Salman Khan On Sanju’s Trailer
Salman Khan said, “Whenever Sanju wants to make a comeback, he will. It is all left to Sanjay Dutt, the day he thinks ‘I want to come back, he will be back.’ Even for the movie Sanju, I thought why did somebody else play his part. No one can do justice to that. The last bit of the film, Sanju only should have played it himself. The last portion of the last eight to ten years, Sanju only should have done it.”
Ranbir Kapoor’s Reply
After the statement of Salman Khan, Ranbir Kapoor said, “It has never happened that a person played himself in his own biopic as it destroys the effect of a character.” Admittedly, Ranbir Kapoor had a point in his statement. However, Rajkumar Hirani came up with a reply which seems more mature.
This Is What Rajkumar Hirani Said
He said, “The thought of Sanjay as his older self in the film’s final portions had crossed my mind for a moment, but then I let it go as I felt it would be too abrupt and weird. For one, you are seeing Ranbir as Sanju throughout most of the film, and then suddenly, you see Sanjay playing his older self, which would have automatically disconnected the public’s link with the film.”
The film is all set to release on 29 June 2018, are you excited for this one? Share in the comments.
