The recent times have seen an array of biopics being made on the celluloid, like Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Paan Singh Tomar, Shahid, The Dirty Picture etc…to name a few. If there’s one person whose biopic features on everyone’s wish list, then, it has to be on none other than Bollywood’s favourite ‘baba’ Sanjay Dutt.
A good news for Sanjay Dutt fans after long time. Rajkumar Hirani, the director of films like ‘Munnabhai’, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘PK’ will begin shooting for his next film, tentatively titled ‘Dutt’, next year.
The film, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani and Sanjay Dutt, is said to be dealing with the positive side of Dutt’s life.
Hirani, who has earlier worked with Sanjay Dutt, said that it’s only a one tenth of Dutt’s life which the world knows. In the same breath he also added that, despite everything he has gone through, there is an honest child inside Sanjay Dutt.
“He (Sanjay Dutt) is co-producing the film. The decision was taken recently. The work on the script is still going on” a source close to the film said.
Ranbir Kapoor will play Sanjay Dutt on-screen. The film is expected to release in 2017.
