Now, a few pictures of Sanjay Dutt are going viral and you will be shocked to compare those pictures with Ranbir Kapoor's looks in the teaser. (Inputs from RANBIR KAPOOR KINGDOM)
Inside The Yerwada Jail
You would be lying if you would say that in this picture; Ranbir Kapoor doesn't look spitting image of Sanjay Dutt.
Recently, while talking to a leading daily, director Rajkumar Hirani revealed why he thought Ranbir would fit the bill perfectly. He said, "Hmmm. Why Ranbir? The first reason for choosing him is that he's a fantastic actor. And the second reason is that he is at the perfect age."
Oh My Gosh!
Rajkumar Hirani further added, "I needed an actor who could be 21 (years old) because that is where the film begins. That was the age when Sanju was shooting for Rocky and his drug phase started.
And then we have Sanju when he came out of prison (around 56 years). So, we needed someone who could fit that transformation."
Rockstar Sanjay Dutt

Ranbir Was Shocked To Know Sanjay’s Journey

Ranbir Loved Playing ‘Munna’
