Ranbir Kapoor will be playing the role of Sanjay Dutt, whose life has attracted enough attention to weave into a biopic. Anushka Sharma will also be seen playing the role of a journalist in the movie and Sonam Kapoor will play one of the women Sanjay has fallen in love with.
“It’s not a film about guns, drugs and the underworld. It’s a feel-good film about a father-son relationship with Paresh Rawal playing Sunil Dutt and Ranbir as Sanju… A buddy film with Sanju’s many friends adding up to one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal,” Raju was quoted during an interview by Mumbai Mirror.
When Masaan actor Vicky Kaushal was asked about his role in the movie, he had said, “It’s too early to talk about it, so I won’t be able to say much. But I am very excited. It’s your dream to work with certain people and learn from them. Finally, I am getting an opportunity, I am very happy.” His father and Bollywood’s famous stunt coordinator SHam Kaushal also left a message for Vicky on Twitter. He wrote, “It is official now. Vicky Kaushal working with Raj Kumar Hiraniji. As a father feeling blessed. :) May God bless the film & the whole team.”
