But, it has also left everyone guessing as to what portions of
his life story would actually end up on the silver screen. In one
of the earlier interviews, Ranbir Kapoor who plays the title role
had said, "Sanjay's lived his life. He owned up to his mistakes,
he's paid the price for it. He's been through much... his mother
(the late Nargis Dutt) passing away just before the premiere of his
film, drug abuse, being labelled a terrorist, his failed marriages,
the grind of punishment... We're not trying to project Sanjay Dutt
in any way, it's not a propaganda film.
Recently when we met Arshad Warsi for an
exclusiveinterview, we couldn't help ourselves from asking
him what he thinks about this filmon his good friend and
Arshad told us, "Iamlooking forward to the Sanjay
Dutt biopic. I know the script.It's brilliant. I feel it will
be fortunate that people will get to see what actually happened
with Sanju. Something which nobody knows. It's a sad case.
Everybody just gets up, shouts and points fingers. But nobody
really knows the truth. It's sad how nobody even knows anything
about it. Afterseeing the film, everybody would say poor guy
went through all this for nothing."
The biopic also stars Sonam Kapoor as Sanjay's earlier love
interest, Anushka Sharma as a scribe, Vicky Kaushal as Sanjay's
friend, Dia Mirza as Maanyata Dutt, Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and
Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt.
