One of Bollywood’s most talented and yet controversial actors Sanjay Dutt has led a colourful life – the canvas of which was filled with super hits, affairs with top heroines, death of parents, political scandals and jail terms. So it wasn’t surprising when a filmmaker decided to make a biopic on his life. Rajkummar Hirani took that step boldly and just released its teaser trailer. The film is called ‘Sanju‘ and it stars none other than Ranbir Kapoor.
Ranbir has outdone himself in his role as Sanjay Dutt and promises to look the character 100 per cent. The official first teaser is finally out after months of excitement and keeping the looks under wraps.
First, let’s check out the different looks of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt:
And these are some of the other looks which show Kapoor as Sanjay Baba in the biopic:
The trailer is only 1 minute and 25 seconds, but it’s enough to get everyone excited. It got mixed response on social media – with funny, hilarious, sweet and even wow undertones. Let’s us take a look at the trailer which got released on April 24:
People couldn’t believe Ranbir’s awesome transformation. The similarities are so strong that the trailer left many people confused whether they saw Ranbir or ‘Sanju Baba’ himself!

#SanjuTeaser gave me goosebumps. #RanbirKapoor is outstanding beyond words. @RajkumarHirani manages to keep the tone so light, fun and easy even on such serious topics, sir it is just F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. Dying dying dying to see #Sanju! @foxstarhindi @VVCFilms

I will watch #Sanju only for #RanbirKapoor as he has put his soul in the movie. Without him, one can't imagine the screenplay. Otherwise, #SanjayDutt doesn't deserve it. What he has done, can't be forgotten!!!
Hope the movie won't portray him as Nation's Hero!!!#SanjuTeaser

it's Hirani's trademark to find humour in the darkest conditions – it's what we love about his films and it's there in full force. i think it's amazing how they've made that tone work. #SanjuTeaser

Since the trailer, a million views and hoards of reactions, you’ll be surprised to know that at the teaser launch event, the real Sanjay Dutt wasn’t even present! He sent this recorded video message for the team and here’s what he had to say – from the man himself:
To check out the chemistry between the two actors, here’s another video and this one is as funny as those memes:
The film also stars Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor. The role of Sanjay Dutt’s mother Nargis Dutt will be done by Manisha Koirala and Paresh Rawal will be seen as his late father Sunil Dutt. Dia Mirza will be playing his current wife Maanayata Dutt. The film is scheduled to release on June 29.
