Ranbir Kapoor has opened up about the much talked about Sanjay Dutt biopic he has been working on.

Talking to Hindustan Times, Kapoor said, “Sanju Sir has been closely attached to the film. He has come on set and has been amazingly supportive. It used to be surreal for me because I am acting like him. He used to sit in front of the monitor and see some scenes and be so happy. He’s like an overgrown child, who gives love to people…I feel like I was born to play this part. He is the only actor whose picture is on my cupboard and to play him is surreal. Getting a physical look right is easy. To get somebody’s soul right, the human being right- that’s the hard part. I hope I’ve done a good job.

He added, “I’m grateful for this film and am working hard on it. I hope that people understand this man’s life, his soul through my work.”

The film also stars Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza and Vicky Kaushal. It releases next March.
