Ra­jku­mar Hi­rani’s next film, a biopic on San­jay Dutt (right), has been in the news for a while now. Ran­bir Kapoor (in­set), who plays Dutt in the film, has been pho­tographed on the sets and the un­canny re­sem­blance has taken the In­ter­net by storm.

Dutt him­self was re­port­edly taken aback by the re­sem­blance. Now that the film team has an­nounced a Christ­mas re­lease, Dutt is grow­ing anx­ious.

A source says, “On see­ing Ran­bir’s pic­tures, San­jay was ab­so­lutely amazed. Be­fore that, the biopic be­ing made was like an idea be­ing dis­cussed. But now that the pic­tures have sur­faced, the re­al­ity of the movie be­ing made and tak­ing shape, in or­der to take his story to the au­di­ence, is seep­ing in. [Dutt] is get­ting anx­ious as to how peo­ple will re­act to the story.”

Asked if Ran­bir has got his man­ner­isms right, Dutt says, “It’s re­ally amaz­ing. Ran­bir is pretty much there and it’s un­be­liev­able what he’s do­ing. I

feel Ran­bir is one of the best ac­tors we have [to­day], and to top that, there’s Raju Hi­rani.”

It was re­cently re­vealed that Ran­bir will have six dif­fer­ent looks in the film. These looks will range from the ones in Dutt’s movies such as Rocky (1976) and Khal­nayak (1993), to name a few.

Ran­bir also has Dutt’s look while the lat­ter was in prison, along with a few other of the ac­tor’s off­screen looks.
