Sanjay Dutt’s life has been colorful and volatile at the same time. Neglected childhood, loss of parent, rebellion, drugs, arms, terrorism, heights of popularity in the film world, love affairs, failures in love, failed marriage, estranged daughter, depression, finally jail… enough material for more than one film.
But it is finally coming to the silver screen, as per sources. To be produced by Dutt’s wife Manyata, the film will be directed by Raj Kumar Hirani, who turned Dutt into Munnabhai earlier. Hirani had to be persuaded by the Dutt couple to take on the job for quite some time, sources say.
Another sensational part of the film will be Ranbir, who is confirmed to play Sanjay’s character. Ranbir has been a fan of Sanjay Dutt for a long time. The whole project has been finalised about a week before Sanjay went back to prison, persons close with the proceedings mentioned. Other details will take time to emerge. The project might start after Hirani finishes his Peekay, a satire he is making with Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput.
