Biopic on Sanjay Dutt will deal both highs and lows of his life: Ranbir

Vastavam web: Ranbir Kapoor says the upcoming biopic on Sanjay Dutt will deal with both the highs and lows of the actor’s life. Ranbir says Dutt has been very gracious in providing insights about his life story in an honest way for the biopic being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani.”We are trying to show a very human side of Sanjay Dutt, his perils, his downfall, his will to fight, his time in jail, terrorism charges, his drug phase, how he handled his mother’s death two days before the release of his debut film, his relationship with his father. These were human conflicts in his life,” Ranbir told. “He is such a relevant person even today. He is so much loved even today. He is controversial. But when you have Rajkumar Hirani as the director and Abhijat Joshi as the writer and the character like Sanjay Dutt, you are somewhere cushioned,” he says.”Getting the look right is very superficial, it is easy as you have help from make-up and computer graphics. To show Sanjay Dutt as a human being, as a biopic only works when you show the human side of a person, and not the glories but the downfall as well.Though Ranbir seems to have got the look right, he is extremely nervous about the film. There were rumours that the “Khalnayak” track will be recreated in the biopic but Ranbir says that’s not true.”We have not touched upon the ‘Khalnayak’ phase. This film doesn’t talk about Sanjay Dutt the hero, but Sanjay Dutt’s life. We have touched upon his few films like the first one ‘Rocky’, ‘Munnabhai MBBS’,” he says.
