Unarguably the best director in Bollywood film industry, Rajkumar Hirani is busy in Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanjay Dutt biopic. The film which went on floors two months back has been making headlines for all the right reasons.
The makers of Dutt biopic including Ranbir Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Abhijit Joshi held a press conference yesterday at Bhopal where they were shooting. During the press conference, the whole team looked extremely confident about the product
Talking about the film, writer Abhijit Joshi said that the film is shaping very well. Even it’s rough cut is looking better than 3 Idiots. This is our most entertaining film till date and is highly family oriented. It will have tremendous repeat value.
He also said that this is Rajkumar Hirani’s best direction till date but still everyone will only talk about Ranbir Kapoor’s terrific performance.
Rajkumar Hirani confirmed that Munnabhai 3 will go on floors right after the release of Dutt Biopic. “Right after PK, we had started working on Munnabhai 3 and at that time, Sanjay Dutt came out on payroll and narrated me his story which was very engaging and entertaining. It has several relationships like father-son and friendship, which excited the director in me. But I promise that after Dutt Biopic, my next film would be Munnabhai 3. Abhijat is writing the script of Munnabhai currently.”
Talking about Ranbir Kapoor, Vinod Chopra said, “To praise Ranbir Kapoor is like to hold a candle to the sun. His performance in Dutt is the best you have ever seen.”
Ranbir Kapoor is not playing Sanjay Dutt, he is actually living it. He even spent some days at a jail, pushing the limits of method acting. Ranbir talked, walked and looked exactly like Sanjay at the press conference. A journalist even asked Ranbir that he is behaving like Sanjay. The actor also said that he would have worked for 10 years for Dutt if needed.
The film has been announced to release on Christmas this year. Dutt team is now building up the hype and it looks like that they are preparing for the clash with Tiger Zinda Hai.
If the clash happens, it would be a very interesting battle between Bollywood’s biggest superstar and biggest director. Rajkumar Hirani has never disappointed so far and the content of all his films is excellent. Dutt is also carrying terrific reports. On the other hand, we have Salman Khan who is on a dream run and can even overshadow the content.
