Not Ranbir Kapoor But This Actor Was Producer’s FIRST Choice For Sanju


Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju is going to release on June 29th. People are eagerly waiting for the movie because of its interesting and controversial subject. The main reason of the excitement among the people is Ranbir Kapoor who is playing the role of Sanjay Dutt. Ranbir has done a hard work to play Sanjay Dutt and to look like him. He is looking impressive as Sanjay Dutt in the trailers.

But do you know? Ranbir was not Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s first choice to play the lead character of Sanju? You read it right. Vidhu wanted another actor to play this role and he was non other than Ranveer Singh because he has the madness, flamboyance and emotional depth to play this complicated, conflicted part but according to the director of the movie, Rajkumar Hirani, Ranbir Kapoor would be the perfect choice.

Ranbir Kapoor himself was very excited about playing the part of Dutt on big screen. He even said that when Raju called him up he hoped it was not about the Sanjay Dutt biopic. Ranbir was mesmerized after reading the script. Later, Ranbir made a remarkable transformation and impressed Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Vidhu stated that he had to eat his words as the Kapoor scion became Dutt with both: swagger and soul.
