After the great success of his recently released film, ‘PK’ (2014), one would expect Rajkumar Hirani to take some time out and celebrate. ��However, the filmmaker is all ready to go with his next film, which is a biopic on Sanjay Dutt. ��Speaking of the biopic on his good friend, Hirani says he does not want to be accused of glorifying Dutt.

“A biopic has to be truthful, and, especially in Sanjay’s case, we will have to be truthful because we don’t want to be accused of glorifying him. ��I have also told him this clearly, ‘If we make this film, we want to tell this story as it is with all your flaws and your goodness’… I don’t think anybody has lived a life like Sanjay’s. ��It’s like he has lived 20 lives in his 55 years,” the filmmaker said in an interview with��Hindustan Times.

Hirani also went on to add that Dutt’s life has been “fascinating, emotional and even funny”, therefore forming an interesting script.

Actor Ranbir Kapoor is expected to essay the role of Dutt in the film.
