For Sanju, Ranbir Kapoor has recreated Sanjay Dutt's famous classroom scene at the hospital from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S
The makers of Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju have treated us to a special video of the actor, in which he has recreated Sanjay Dutt's famous classroom scene at the hospital from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S (2003). Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt just nails it and we can't say anything more. The resemblance is uncanny between the two actors, from the orange shirt, highlighted hair, same voice and expressions. For once, you might get confused if that's Ranbir or Sanjay Dutt. And, yes, there's Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani too in the scene. If you remember, this particular scene had a blink-and-miss screen appearance in Sanju trailer.
"Hope you have as much fun watching this scene from Munna Bhai M.B.B.S as I had in recreating it after 15 years," director Rajkumar Hirani tweeted. He has directed both the films.
The much-awaited Sanju is a biopic on Sanjay Dutt. The film is supported by actors like Paresh Rawal (Sunil Dutt), Manisha Koirala (Nargis), Sonam Kapoor (one of Sanjay Dutt's girlfriends), Dia Mirza (wife Maanyata), Anushka Sharma (a biographer) and Vicky Kaushal (as childhood friend).
Earlier this week, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra had revealed that he wanted to cast Ranveer Singh as Sanjay Dutt in Sanju. In an interview to The Telegraph, he said, "It was Raju's idea to cast Ranbir. When he told me about Ranbir, I wasn't happy at all. I thought someone else, like Ranveer Singh, could play this role much better. I thought Ranveer had the flamboyance, the emotional depth as well as the ability to change himself completely to play Sanjay Dutt."
"But Raju was adamant that Ranbir would be perfect. And when we started shooting and Ranbir became Sanjay Dutt, I had to kind of eat my words. I think I can best sum this up by saying that Ranbir has become Sanjay Dutt both in swagger and soul," Mr Chopra added.
