Raju Hirani is all set to make the biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life and we are super excited about it. Recently he talked to media about it.
Talking about his first meet with Sanjay Dutt, he says, “He’d disinterestedly ask someone to read his lines to him in the make-up room and appeared to not have heard a word, nor would he rehearse. It was only later that I realised he has a photographic memory and needs to look at a page for five minutes and he’ll have memorised it. Dutt saab (Sunil Dutt) pointed out that he’s a spontaneous actor like his mother Nargis who’d laugh and play around before an emotional shot, then easily shed tears for the camera,” Raju informs, remembering the senior Dutt who’d returned to films after 16 years with his directorial debut, Munna Bhai MBBS, as a pro who’d turn up at 8.30am for a 9am call time, never wanted to look at the monitor after a shot, was surprised to be given a makeup man and came for the dubbing after six months with his script, the lines written in Urdu as requested. “When we were shooting the last scene, he had a frozen shoulder and couldn’t lift his hands to hug Sanju the way I wanted. When he heard his son whisper to me not to pressurise him, Dutt saab told me he’d do it my way and despite the pain gave Sanju a jadoo ki jhappi.”
When asked to throw some light on the Biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life, he said “It’s not a film about guns, drugs and the underworld. It’s a feel-good film about a father-son relationship with Paresh Rawal playing Sunil Dutt and Ranbir as Sanju… A buddy film with Sanju’s many friends adding up to one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal. It goes on the floors today, January 14, and Sanju will give the clap. We are one big family. We hope to wrap it up by June and are targeting a Christmas 2017 release”
