HIRANI’S NOT PROMOTING DUTT WITH BIOPIC
The bond they share is much bigger and beyond the on-screen magic they have created with Munnabhai movies, but filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani says the upcoming biopic on Sanjay Dutt is not an attempt to publicise or promote his friend.
“When they told me about the film I said I don’t understand this world, till I actually heard his story. I found it very engaging. That’s the only reason I am going to make a film and I am only going to show him as he is,” Hirani said.
The filmmaker finds the Agneepath actor’s life story very intriguing and feels it has all the possible elements which will contribute in the making of a great movie.
Ranbir Kapoor has been roped in to play the lead and Hirani says the reason they got him on board was because he has seen the industry inside out and knows Dutt on a personal level. Dutt, 56, is serving a 42-month sentence at Pune’s Yerwada jail after he was convicted for illegal possession of weapons in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
