"Firstly, I have always been a Sanjay Dutt fan. So, for me, it was a fan playing his icon. So, the hardest thing for me was to give myself the confidence to do it. I consider Sanjay Dutt a very flawed person but a wonderful person. He's a pop icon. It was scary," Ranbir Kapoor told reporters at the event.

Sanju director Rajkumar Hirani said, "When we heard the story, we thought that a film needs to be made. We asked Sanju, 'We are going to make this film, do you have the courage? The story which you are telling us if it is shown on the screen, will it be alright with you? Will you not have any problem?'. And, Sanju agreed."

Speaking about the making of the film, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra remarked, "I immediately said, 'Have you gone crazy? What is there in Sanjay Dutt's life, that you are going to make a film on his life? Will you glorify him?'. Then, they started telling me the story. Then slowly I started discovering Sanjay Dutt that frankly I didn't know."
