A few hours ago, some pictures went viral (Yes,Again!) from the sets of the untitled Sanjay Dutt biopic. A tall and brooding artist could be seen standing with Vicky Kaushal on a terrace. Resembling Sanjay Dutt, the man was nobody else but the lead actor of the biopic, Ranbir Kapoor. Known to completely immerse his teeth into the character, Kapoor effortlessly succeeded in becoming Dutt’s doppelganger.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film is all set to release on the Christmas weekend this year. Co-staring Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Diya Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal and Paresh Rawal, it will be intriguing to witness how the maverick filmmaker has portrayed the topsy-turvy and tumultuous life of our very own Munnabhai.
As far as the physicality is concerned, Kapoor seems to have hit the bulls eye. The greater challenge here will be to replicate the emotions, the nonchalance and the aura of that man. There are only a few actors in the industry who can make a thousand heads turn in a couple of seconds, and Sanjay Dutt is one of them.
Will Ranbir Kapoor nail his most challenging and complexed role as a performer? Will this biopic be etched in our minds?
Wait till December. Till then, here’s a sneak-peak into Kapoor’s look from the film.
