I have been trying to avoid Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt
It is almost confirmed now that Ranbir Kapoor will portray the role of Sanjay Dutt in his biopic to be helmed by Rajkumar Hirani but with this good news some disheartening news also came to be heard. It is said that Sanjay Dutt is unhappy about Ranbir playing his role as he believes that the Kapoor lad lacks the macho look like him. He feels Ranbir is not manly enough to portray his role and he has to undergo immense makeover physically to look like him.
From inward as well as outward, Ranbir has to change himself for the role and it is not so an easy task according to Sanju Baba. To step into Sanjay’s role, Ranbir Kapoor has to undergo huge training and it is a big challenge for the ‘Barfi’ actor. He has to build up his body, grow up long hair and walk and talk like him. For that surpose, Ranbir has to spend as much time as he can with Sanjay to study and understand him.
But the shocking part is that Sanju Baba has been avoiding him.
At a recent event, when Sanjay was quizzed about Ranbir playing him in the biopic, he took a dig at the actor in polite words. Sanjay said, "My life might be interesting, that’s why a director like Raju Hirani liked it. Ranbir is playing me, but his condition is quite bad. He calls me every day. He wants to spend days and weeks with me, but I can't spend more than half an hour with anybody. I have been trying to avoid him, it is a difficult role for him to play. He is a fine actor though."
Pooja Bhatt who also was at the event backed Sanjay's words, "Tell Ranbir that this is not how it works. You have to live, you have to fall, no one can become Sanjay Dutt like that. The generation today, nobody says anything without a PR person, nobody steps out without a stylist. When Sanju cut his hair in that mohawk style and wore that ganji, it became a rage. I don't think that just by spending weeks with Sanjay, Ranbir will be able to play him. Maybe he needs a few more knocks," she said.The biopic will also Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor playing pivotal role.
