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.
