Ranbir Kapoor, who was last seen on the big screen in filmmaker Karan Johar’s multi-starrer Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, will essay the role of Sanjay Dutt in the upcoming biopic. Sanjay Dutt recently caused a mini flutter when he remarked he was avoiding Ranbir Kapoor who is now prepping up to play him in a biopic. Director Raju Hirani went on to later clarify that contrary to speculations, Sanjay was joking about avoiding Ranbir.
In an earlier interview with indianexpress.com, Ranbir while talking about Dutt had said, “I have grown up around him. So, we are that friendly. On my birthday, he gifted me a Harley Davidson. We are that close.” The biopic is reportedly said to feature Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor as well.
After a flop debut together in Saawariya, Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor will hopefully come together onscreen almost after a decade. The alleged ex-lovers are known to steer clear of each other in the past. But Sonam was recently spotted at Ranbir Kapoor’s sucess bash for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. After which, talks of her starring in the Sanjay Dutt biopic started.
