Earlier in a statement, Raju has said that they are targeting Christmas 2017 release.
“It goes on the floors today, January 14, and Sanju will give the clap. We are one big family. We hope to wrap it up by June and are targeting a Christmas 2017 release”.
“It’s not a film about guns, drugs and the underworld. It’s a feel-good film about a father-son relationship with Paresh Rawal playing Sunil Dutt and Ranbir as Sanju. A buddy film with Sanju’s many friends adding up to one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal”.
This will set up a big clash between Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Dutt Biopic. It will be a very interesting scenario as one has India’s biggest superstar who is at the peak of his career and other has India’s best director who not only enjoys critical acclaim but also tremendous box office success.
