Ranbir Kapoor’s forthcoming biographical film on popular Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has become the talk of the town ever since the teaser of the film was released. The film helmed by filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra describes the life journey of Sanjay Dutt and the various important events which occurred in his life. Moreover, Ranbir Kapoor’s transformation to get into the skin of the character has been appreciated and applauded by everyone.
Not many are aware of the fact that actor Aamir Khan was approached to play a pivotal role in the film. Aamir was supposed to essay the role of Sanjay Dutt’s father i.e. Sunil Dutt. However, the Dangal actor refused to play the part. As per a recent interview in a popular daily, Rajkumar who is a dear friend of Aamir said, “Aamir is a friend. Any script I write, I bounce it to him. When I narrated Sanju to him, he loved it and said, ‘Main bhi kuch karta hoon (I should also do something in it).’ Then I said, do this (Sunil Dutt’s role). But he was already doing the role of an elderly man in Dangal (2016) around the same time.”
The Trailer of Sanju will be released later this month and the film is scheduled to hit the theatres on June 29. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza and Vicky Kaushal in significant roles.
Aamir Khan will be seen co starring with legendary Amitabh Bachchan in Aditya Chopra’s forthcoming production Thugs of Hindostan which is scheduled to release on Diwali this year.
