Sanjay Dutt biopic: Manisha Koirala nails as Nargis Dutt


Sanjay Dutt’s biopic titled ‘Dutt’ is in news from the very beginning. Ranbir Kapoor essays the role of Sanju Baba and his makeover as Dutt is already creating ripples. Now a new picture of another star is being circulated on net and it is just marvellous. We are talking about Manisha Koirala, who is playing the role of veteran actress and mother of Sanjay Dutt, Nargis Dutt.

Paresh Rawal and Manisha Koirala will be seen as Sanjay Dutt's parents Sunil Dutt and Nargis respectively. Photos of Ranbir and Manisha from the sets of the film in Cape Town have been shared by fan clubs on the Internet and has gone viral. In the photos, Manisha looks very much like Nargis and dates back to the 80s actress.

Talking about her looks in the movie, Manisha earlier told news agency PTI: "We did a couple of tests, from when she had short hair to when she had long hair. I think we have got the look somewhere closer to how Nargis Ji looked and I am quite kicked about it. Yes, I am excited about it."

Ranbir Kapoor told news agency PTI that Sanjay Dutt biopic doesn't portray him as a 'god.' He said: "He hasn't been a hypocrite about it (his life). So it's not a propaganda film trying to portray him as God or something. We are trying to show a very human side of Sanjay Dutt, his perils, his downfall, his will to fight, his time in jail, terrorism charges, his drug phase, how he handled his mother's death two days before the release of his debut film, his relationship with his father. These were human conflicts in his life."

The Dutt biopic also stars Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal and Sonam Kapoor in the pivotal roles. The film is slated to hit the theatres on June 29, 2018.
