Master director Rajkumar Hirani has already immersed himself into scripting Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. While this is the first time, the director is attempting to tell a story about a real person, Raju feels Sanjay Dutt’s life story is no less than fiction.
Talking to The Indian Express.com, Hirani said, ” Actually Sanjay’s story is stranger than fiction. It fell into my lap one day when Sanjay opened up and started talking about his story. I found it interesting. I sat with him for close to 25 days listening to him speak. The only reason behind making the film is because it is a very engaging story and I felt this should be told.”
Hirani also confirmed that the scripting will finish by early next year and film will go on floors and be up for release by 2017.
