Sanjay Gupta doesn’t feature in Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt despite having known the star for over two decades. The two even have a production company together.
An industrywala reasons, “Maybe Gupta doesn’t feature in the film because he has been against the Dutt biopic from the beginning. The director believes that it’s too early for a film on Dutt to be made.”
Says a source, “Their friendship hit a rough patch in 2007, but they made up five years later. While the two are yet to announce their next film, their friendship remains strong as ever. Though, It’s a bit weird that one of Baba’s oldest friends has been left out of the biopic.”
A friend of Gupta says, “Gups does not mind that he’s been left out from the biopic. He firmly believes that making a biopic on Dutt now is like writing off the star’s career too soon; almost like an obituary to his profession. Sanju has a great many years left in him and it will be sad for fans to miss out on that.”
Meanwhile we are getting to hear that Sonam Kapoor will be sharing screen space with Ranbir Kapoor after 10 years with Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. Earlier Sonam and Ranbir had acted together in their debut film ‘Saawariya’. The talented actress will have a cameo with Ranbir Kapoor, who is portraying the character of Sanjay Dutt in the biopic.Sonam won’t be playing a full-fledged character like it’s being made out to be. Instead, she will only have a guest appearance in the film and have a brief role instead.
Ranbir Kapoor who will be seen as onscreen Sanjay Dutt will have to really buckle up, as he would have to go undergo complete transformation for playing the role of Sanjay Dutt. As he will have to learn everything about Sanjay Dutt right from his walking style to the way he speaks, the way he thinks, in order to emote him onscreen.
