Here it comes!
The much-awaited film based on the life of superstar Sanjay Dutt is all set to release this summers, scorching up the temperatures. After a long wait, the first poster of Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor in and as Sanjay is out! And bwoy, we are bowled over.
The poster depicts five stages of Dutt's life starting from his debut in Rocky which came out in 1981 right after the demise of his beloved mother Nargis Dutt. In the second avatar, we have Dutt in the peak of his career, i.e. in the 90s when he acted in films such as Vaastav (1999) which won him all the awards that year and Kaante (2002).
The third stage has him as one of the most beloved characters on the screen, ie. Munnabhai MBBS. Our favourite goon who entered the medical to seek out revenge from the dean who wronged his parents. The film ended up becoming the milestone of his career and till date, he is fondly referred as Munnabhai amongst his peers.
The fourth stage/fourth look of the actor highlights the part when he decided to serve his jail term. In the year 2013, the Supreme Court upheld the verdict Tada Court and sentenced him to imprisonment for 5 years. After serving his sentence with good behaviour and conduct he was released in February 2016.
The fifth look happens to be the most iconic and defining moment in Dutt's career when he stepped out of Yerwada Central Jail. The actor who was wearing a blue shirt and denim when stepped out of the jail, touched the mother Earth and saluted to the national flag. Fans and media came pouring to greet the actor. The police had to restrain the mob which Rajkumar Hirani captured in a lens and is said to be the opening scene of the film.
Judging by the look of the poster alone Ranbir's portrayal as Sanjay has left many speechless and completely in awe of the actor's talent. Needless to say, one can expect the movie to be a milestone in Ranbir's career.
Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also stars an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani in pivotal roles.
