Veteran filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has finished shooting with Manisha Koirala for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic which is tentatively titled Dutt. After Dear Maya, Manisha Koirala will be seen in Ranbir Kapoor’s film where she will be essaying the role of Sanjay Dutt’s mother, veteran actor Nargis Dutt in the biopic.
Sanjay Dutt’s role in the biopic is being essayed by Ranbir Kapoor. The Jagga Jasoos actor has undergone a lot of transformation for getting into the skin of the character. He has learned the nuances of Sanjay Dutt’s behaviour in order to do justice to the role he is playing. The film also has Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Karishma Tanna, Vicky Kaushal, Dia Mirza and Jim Sarbh in supporting roles
Sanjay Dutt had been very close to his mother. However, Nargis Dutt had passed away before the release of Sanjay Dutt’s first film, Rocky. The film will concentrate on the mother-son relationship since she happened to be a very integral part of his life. So Dear Maya star will be playing a pivotal role in this film.
The filmmaker took to social media to share the news that Manisha has completed shooting her portions for the film and tweeted,”Just finished shooting with @mkoirala as Nargisji. Such a fine performer. Wish you the best for #DearMaya Manisha”.
