Bollywood biopics generally steer away from the negative aspects of the subject but Ranbir says their movie will not be a propaganda. "The audience will get to know the real Sanjay Dutt. There is a certain image about him because of the controversies and his imprisonment. Whatever we have shown in the film is an honest portrayal. There is no exaggeration nor is it a propaganda film. It is not like just because we are making a film, we have to show him in a very positive light," Ranbir Kapoor said.

The 34-year-old actor says initially he was apprehensive to take on the role as the story is very honest. "When Sanjay Dutt heard the story, he never asked for a change, which I think is very brave of him."I don't know how someone can live a life which has so many ups and downs. It will take me 100 lives to replicate it... He is very child-like, has a positive outlook in life at the face of hardships and tough times. He also has a very strong will."
