She captioned it, “The happiest place in the world is a Rajkumar Hirani film set. Sanjay Dutt biopic, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal.”

Rajkumar Hirani has roped in Ranbir Kapoor to play the lead role in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic.

Rajkumar Hirani too shared the same picture of the first shot for the biopic. He had tweeted on Saturday saying, “First shot taken now for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. Canning a very funny scene. Excitement in cast and crew.”

Apart from Dia, Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor are also signed for the project. The ‘PK’ actress will play a journalist in the film while Sonam Kapoor will play Ranbir’s love interest.

“It’s not a film about guns, drugs and the underworld. It’s a feel-good film about a father-son relationship with Paresh Rawal playing Sunil Dutt and Ranbir as Sanju… A buddy film with Sanju’s many friends adding up to one from the US, played by Vicky Kaushal,” Raju was quoted as saying.

Vicky Kaushal of ‘Masaan’ fame will be seen playing a pivotal role, he said, “It’s too early to talk about it, so I won’t be able to say much. But I am very excited. It’s your dream to work with certain people and learn from them. Finally, I am getting an opportunity, I am very happy.”
