Rajkumar Hirani's biopic on Sanjay Dutt is one of the most awaited films of this year. Showbiz, women, jail, drugs...the actor's controversial life promises to make a riveting watch.
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 exclusive interview, we couldn't help ourselves from asking him what he thinks about this film on his good friend and 'Munnabhai' co-star.
Arshad told us, "I am looking 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. After seeing 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.
