Ranbir Kapoor's new look from Sanjay Dutt's biopic has gone viral online but co-star Dia Mirza feels it should not have been leaked. "You should not have seen that look. It was leaked by the media... I will admit it was upsetting that the look was out as we were saving the look to reveal much later.
"We are enthused with the response from the public but we wish the media had respected the privacy of the film and not revealed the look," Dia told the reporters.
Dia Plays Maanayata Dutt
In the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film, Dia plays the role of Maanayata, Dutt's wife. "Shooting is going really well. I have just completed my work. It's such a privilege and honour to be working with such wonderful set of people."
Dia Is Excited For The Film
Rajkumar Hirani had directed me in 'Lage Raho Munnabhai' and it was great to be working with him again. Right now we all are tight-lipped about the film but we can't wait to reveal things."
Dia Praises Ranbir Like Never Before
Dia has teamed up for the first time with Ranbir. "Ranbir is amazing and there are no two ways about it. There has been learning curve working with him. He is supremely talented and down to earth person and it was sheer joy and privilege watching him work," Dia, who is playing the role of Sanjay's wife Manyata in the film, told reporters.
Ranbir's Popularity Will Increase Post Film Release: Dia
"Also Ranbir Kapoor has one of the finest temperaments I have ever worked with and I am sure after releasing the film, his popularity and respect as an actor will increase ten folds," added Dia at the IIFA voting weekend 2017 that took place here on Sunday.
Dia Is Looking Foward To IIFA
Dia is also excited about upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in New York in July. "I am looking forward to experience the love and appreciation that Priyanka Chopra has garnered. It will be interesting to see," she added.
Dia On Socially Relevant Films
Taking about the socially relevant films, which released last year, she said, "It was an interesting year as many socially relevant topics were explored... My top three favourite films were 'Neerja', 'Pink', 'Dangal'. There is an incredible body of work at display...It's difficult to vote. I hope we continue to grow like this."
Coming back to Sanjay Dutt biopic, the film also stars Vicky Kaushal as Sanjay Dutt's close friend, Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt and Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt.
