At a recent late night do at his place, Sanjay Dutt got a little drunk and allegedly poked fun at Ranbir’s choice of movies thus far.
Dutt told Ranbir that he wanted to produce a movie called ‘Laddoo’ and cast Ranbir to play the lead. The unsuspecting Kapoor lad agreed. Sanjay Dutt went on to add that they would then make movies called ‘Imarti’, ‘Jalebi’ and then ‘Peda’. For those of you haven’t caught on, this was Sanju babas way of poking fun at Ranbir’s 2012 movie, ‘Barfi’.
I watched Barfi! on TV recently. What made you do a film like that? @#$^&* bloody hell, you are playing me in the Sanjay Dutt biopic. I don’t know how they cast you.
An inebriated Dutt then went on to decimate the other movies on Ranbir’s repertoire. And, like most drunk people are wont to do, started giving Ranbir filmy gyan.

You should be a macho man. Act in macho films. You can’t be doing films like Barfi!. You should be holding guns and doing action films. Do you think actors like me, Salman (Khan) and Ajay (Devgn) would have been around for so many years, if we had not played macho characters on screen? You have no connect with the masses and that is very important.
Ranbir, it seems, decided not to dignify Dutt’s tirade with an answer. And while ‘Barfi’ was one of the finer Bollywood releases in recent years, Sanju baba’s point about macho heroes doing mad business is hardly wrong.
Ah, well! Maybe Ranbir hopes his movies, and the business they do at the box office, will be all the answer Dutt’s statements need!
