Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - IANS

Film­maker Ra­jku­mar Hi­rani (right), who is cur­rently work­ing on a biopic on ac­tor and close friend Sanjay Dutt (left), says the film will be a fun­filled emo­tional ride.

“It (biopic) will be a very emo­tional film and equally funny like most of my films. I like to tell hu­man in­ter­est sto­ries and I think Sanjay’s is one too,” Hi­rani re­cently said at an event.

Ac­cord­ing to Hi­rani, nar­rat­ing some­one’s life on the sil­ver screen is not a cake walk. “It’s re­ally dif­fi­cult to tell the whole life of a per­son in less than three hours,” he said, adding that it took hours of meet­ing with Dutt to fi­nal­ize the first draft of the script.

“Ab­hi­jat (Joshi; writer) and I met Sanjay for 25 days straight. Each day would give us an en­gag­ing story and it was so dif­fi­cult to com­press all of it into the fi­nal script,” he said.

Hi­rani also shared that dur­ing one of the sev­eral meet­ings, they even spoke about Sanjay’s drink­ing habit. Ac­tor Ran­bir Kapoor will be play­ing the role of Sanjay Dutt in the biopic. Hi­rani will be­gin work­ing on the biopic next year.

Dutt s in jail for il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of arms dur­ing the 1993 Mum­bai bomb blasts and riots.
