Sanjay Dutt’s biopic directed by Rajkumar Hirani will hit the theatres on 29th June. Ranbir Kapoor stars in the lead role in the film and the film’s teaser has enhanced the audience’s curiosity with fans waiting with bated breath to see Kapoor playing Dutt’s life on the big screen.
During ‘Race 3’ promotions, Salman Khan was asked about the Dutt biopic. He had said that he is left wondering why Sanjay Dutt isn’t playing himself in the last 7-8 years of his life in the film, reports Pinkvilla. He said that he felt that Sanjay Dutt himself should have done it as no one can do it better than him.
Kapoor reacted to this at a recent media interaction and said, “It has never happened that a person played himself in his own biopic. This destroys the effect of a character. I knew that I will be compared to Sanjay Dutt and that is why I have tried my best to do justice to his role.”
“Whether people see me in 40-year old Sanjay Dutt’s avatar or 20-year old, they should feel that they are watching an artist who is playing Sanjay Dutt. It is correct that I cannot become a second Sanjay Dutt,” he had said.
