Ranbir Kapoor's last film Jagga Jasoos may have failed to work its charm at the box office but that hasn't affected the popularity of this Kapoor lad a bit.
Currently, everyone is eagerly waiting to watch him play Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani's much awaited Dutt biopic. Ranbir's first look from this flick has already garnered a positive response from the audience. Recently while talking to HT City, here's what Ranbir had to say about this film...
Sanjay Dutt Is Closely Attached To Ranbir's Film
Ranbir was quoted as saying, "Sanju Sir has been closely attached to the film. He has come on set and has been amazingly supportive."
'He Used To Sit In Front Of The Monitor'
"It used to be surreal for me because I am acting like him. He used to sit in front of the monitor and see some scenes and be so happy."
'He's Like An Overgrown Child'
"He's like an overgrown child, who gives love to people...I feel like I was born to play this part."
Ranbir Has Sanjay Dutt's Picture On His Cupboard
"He is the only actor whose picture is on my cupboard and to play him is surreal."
'Getting A Physical Look Right Is Easy'
Ranbir further added, "Getting a physical look right is easy. To get somebody's soul right, the human being right- that's the hard part. I hope I've done a good job. I'm grateful for this film and am working hard on it. I hope that people understand this man's life, his soul through my work."
Sanju Has Nothing To Hide
At the trailer launch of Bhoomi, Dutt had said, " was not skeptical at all because Raju, me and Abhijaat sat for many many hours and I played the cards right out in front of them. I've got nothing to hide and I have never had nothing to hide." However, he also added, "I hope nothing has been shown about my love life."
'To Make A Movie On Sanjay Dutt Is Very Brave'
On the other hand, a Deccan Chronicle report had previously quoted a source as saying, "With the Sanjay Dutt biopic, he has been so honest about his life. We are not portraying a Gandhi like character. We're portraying a very fraud man. He's someone who is love and disliked. He's the most controversial, and to have the ability to tell about your life so honestly, and to make a movie out of it is very brave."
The Dutt biopic has an ensemble cast of Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza and Vicky Kaushal. The flick is slated to release next year.
