Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani unveiled that he made some changes in Sanju script to create some empathy for the actor after people hated him in screen tested period. “According to sources”

Sanju 4th Weekend Box Office Collection

 

Hirani said the initial edit featured the actor’s story as it was and thus was not liked by people.

“During the shoot I felt ‘What am I doing, I’m going wrong.’ In fact, when the first edit was ready and we screened for people, they hated him. They said we don’t like this man, we don’t want to watch him,” he said.

“Because I wanted to do a true story, I didn’t create any empathy towards him. I said lets not create empathy and show (him) as he is. But later I understood that he is our hero, we need some empathy for him,” the director added.

The film director said that he had to add some kind of scenes to create empathy for the actor which was not there earlier.

“The scene where he tries to kill himself after the verdict is out; which he had mentioned to me but we didn’t put in the film, I shot it later. It was not in the original script. I thought through this some empathy will come. The initial test reactions were like ‘naah we don’t like this guy…’ Every film is a journey. Some things work and some don’t. I still see flaws in the film but you try your best and hope your best is good enough.”

The director was in conversation with writer Anjum Rajabali at Indian Film and TV Directors Association’s (IFTDA) special masterclass on Wednesday.

  1. I am surprised how everyone calls Sanju as excellent film .I find the film very vulgar .film is full of double meaning jokes like ‘ ghapaghap ‘ .on the other hand audience criticize a film Happy new year .but HNY don’t contains vulgarity and double meaning jokes . It is double standard of audience.

    • Dude it’s not like u are a saint and never use any vulgar words while staying around your friends..movie was criticised by some ppl complaining it’s a propaganda film..u cannot please everyone with a movie..by hirani did it with 5 films. It’s very very hard to make a film both for the classes and the masses

  2. Agree, It is NOT a family film by any means. Every 10 minutes, there is a cringe worthy scene or dialogue that is just either too vulgar or obscene.

  3. Parental Guidance – Many drug scenes, Scene at the nude bar, Dialogues at the nude bar, Sleeping with the friend’s girl friend, Dialogue about sleeping with 350 women….

  4. I feel Sanju is the worst movie of Raju Hirani . Munnabhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munnabhai and 3 Idiots are exceptional movies . PK for me is a pretty average movie but Aamir was amazing . Ranbir has done a brilliant job playing Sanjay Dutt because it is not easy to copy someone like Sanju Baba . The 2nd half is just plain rubbish where Raju Hirani has tried to create unnecessary sympathy for Sanjay Dutt which is wrong . The 1st half is still entertaining with Sanjay getting addicted to drugs, death of Nargis Dutt and Sanjay going to the rehab centre to get rid of drugs .

  5. I think its a worst film of Raju hirani career….now raju also realizeit….yeh film raju ne bas sanjay dutt KO accha dikhane k liye bnayi thi….I really don’t know raju ne yeh script kyu choose ki….I really don’t like it….raju isse Bht better film bna skta tha agar 4 saal kisi or project mai dhyan deta after PK….
