Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming biopic on Sanjay Dutt titled “Sanju” has left us completely surprised as Ranbir Kapoor looks the exact copy of Sanjay Dutt and seems very much into the character. Till now, the movie has created a buzz among the fans, but the inside details are still not out about the film. However, much is being said and talked about the film in media these days. Did you know that Rajkumar Hirani, who has a long time association with Aamir Khan, wanted to rope the PK actor in “Sanju”?
Any guesses what role would Aamir have played, had he accepted the offer to work in the film? Well, as per a report, Aamir Khan was offered to depict the character of Sunil Dutt in the film, however, he denied to play the part. There must have been a solid reason for Aamir to turn down this lifetime of an offer. It goes way back to 2016, when Aamir was busy shooting for “Dangal” in which he portrayed a wrestler. Since, Khan was already depicting the role of an aging wrestler in “Dangal”, he denied to play another role in which he would be portrayed as an aged father.
Hirani explained reportedly:
“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.”
After Aamir Khan denied the role, it was passed over to Paresh Rawal. The Sanjay Dutt biopic also stars Manisha Koirala, who would depict the role of Nargis Dutt, Dia Mirza as Maanayata Dutt (Sanjay Dutt’s wife) while Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal will be seen in major roles.
Hirani has already started his film promotions and he has been sharing pictures of Ranbir Kapoor from the sets of “Sanju”. The film is scheduled for release on June 29.
