Untitled Sanjay Dutt Biopic is an upcoming Indian biographical drama film, written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film is based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt, with Ranbir Kapoor portraying the role of Dutt.
Shooting for the film began on 14 January 2017 with Ranbir Kapoor, Dia Mirza and other cast and crew.
Ranbir Kapoor’s new look from Sanjay Dutt’s biopic has gone viral online but co-star Dia Mirza feels it should not have been leaked. “You should not have seen that look. It was leaked by the media… I will admit it was upsetting that the look was out as we were saving the look to reveal much later. “We are enthused with the response from the public but we wish the media had respected the privacy of the film and not revealed the look,” Dia told reporters here.
In the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film, Dia plays the role of Maanayata, Dutt’s wife. “Shooting is going really well. I have just completed my work. It’s such a privilege and honour to be working with such wonderful set of people. Rajkumar Hirani had directed me in Lage Raho Munnabhai and it was great to be working with him again,” she said.
“Right now we all are tight-lipped about the film but we can’t wait to reveal things.” Dia has teamed up for the first time with Ranbir. “Ranbir is amazing and there are no two ways about it.” The film also stars Vicky Kaushal as Sanjay Dutt’s close friend, Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt and Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt.
Dia is also excited about upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in New York in July. “I am looking forward to experience the love and appreciation that Priyanka Chopra has garnered. It will be interesting to see,” she adds.
Taking about the socially relevant films, which released last year, she said, “It was an interesting year as many socially relevant topics were explored… My top three favourite films were Neerja, Pink, Dangal. “There is an incredible body of work at display…it’s difficult to vote. I hope we continue to grow like this.”
