In an interview with DNA, Hirani revealed the reason behind choosing Ranbir for the film. He said: ''Hmmm. Why Ranbir? The first reason for choosing him is that he’s a fantastic actor. And the second reason is that he is at the perfect age. I needed an actor who could be 21 (years old) because that is where the film begins. That was the age when Sanju was shooting for Rocky and his drug phase started. And then we have Sanju when he came out of prison (around 56 years). So, we needed someone who could fit that transformation''.

Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox star studios. 'Sanju' is slated to release on 29th June 2018.
