Dia Mirza to play Manyata in Sanjay Dutt Biopic

Actress and producer Dia Mirza will play the role of Sanjay Dutt’s wife Manyata in the actor’s biopic. Dia, who has acted with Sanjay in films like Parineeta and Lage Raho Munna Bhai, had earlier this month said that she has joined the cast of the biopic, being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani. Now, the film’s co-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has revealed her role.

“Dia Mirza is doing the role of Manyata,” Chopra told IANS at the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival, 2017. “It is a biopic and it is more than a biopic too because we expect people to learn something from it,” he added. Chopra also said that among other things, the biopic will also explore Sanjay’s relationship with his late star father Sunil Dutt. Veteran actor Paresh Rawal is playing the role of Sunil Dutt, while Sanjay’s part is being brought alive by Ranbir Kapoor.

The filmmaker revealed that after Sanjay’s release from Yerwada Central Jail last year, the actor used to tell him and Hirani about his life. They thought it could make a good film.

They are looking for a December release. “I don’t make pictures depending on the release date. I prefer to make one picture in four years than four pictures in one year,” said Chopra, who is also set to direct a film on Kashmiri Pandits.

“The shooting will begin from September,” said the director.

    How can anyone be a fan of Aamir ? He is such a racist. He feels unsafe to be in India when every Indian supports his movies even now. Is this the value he gives to his fans and public. So stop being stupid and support Aamir.

    How can anyone be a fan of Salman ? He is an such an alcoholic that he hits someone on the road and get away without being punished. He does not have social responsibility. He is a celebrity and should behave in an ideal way.

    abe disaster khan to jaake na soja…tu koma me chala gaya hai…bollywood incomplete without khans…..

  8. If jagga jassos become hit then tzh will face huge problem while clashing with rabbit movie…

    • jagga jasoos will be hit for sure… main budget-85cr… …..actual budget – 50 cr (deduting morroco rebate 10cr , ranbir and anurag fees(as they are producers)- 25cr )…..and Disney is producer as well as distributer….therefore film need to do the business of 60+cr to be declared as hit…which is not the difficult task even if the movie turns out to be average …if done 100+cr then it will too gud for dutt biopic

  9. budget of dutt biopic is low…shooting period also ending in june 2017…shooting only in india…dutt will be hirani’s lowest budget movie after munnabhai series….gud luck hirani it will be blockbuster for sure
