Rajkumar Hirani's much awaited biopic on Sanjay Dutt has already
hit the shooting floors. Recently, Ranbir Kapoor and Paresh Rawal,
who play Sanjay and Sunil Dutt were
spotted shooting for the film in the suburbs of Mumbai.
Ranbir, who has gained weight and grown out his hair to
play Sanju from the 1990s, was seen donning baggy shirt, a
waist-coat and dark trousers. He was soon joined by his screen dad,
who bore an uncanny resemblance to the late Dutt patriarch in a
crisp white kurta-pyjama and a Nehru jacket.
As per a Mumbai Mirror report, the day's shoot kicked off at 9
am and wrapped up around 6 pm. For the sequence, a warehouse had
been erected at the far end of the studio which borders the Aarey
Milk Colony. The premises is guarded by as many as 20 bouncers.
Earlier, Rajkumar Hirani was quoted saying, "We are targeting a
Christmas 2017 release. It's not a film about guns, drugs and the
underworld. It's a feel-good film about a father-son
relationship... A buddy film with Sanju's many friends adding up to
one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal."
The Dutt biopic has an ensemble cast of Sonam Kapoor embodying
all the women Sanju loved, Anushka Sharma as a scribe, Manisha
Koirala as Nargis Dutt and Dia Mirza as Maanayata Dutt.
