With millions of fans awaiting the release of Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead, the first poster has left the audience stunned. Showcasing the different phases of the Dutt’s life, Ranbir looks unrecognizable as ‘Baba’ of Bollywood. With the excitement only increasing every day, here comes the first teaser of the Sanju that making the right amount of buzz.
It all starts with different avatars of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt narrating different phases of his tumultuous life. From Rocky to downfall due to drugs, from body building to dating, from gun possession to jail time, from New York life to Yerwada jail life, all have been captured within few seconds of the teaser. Then, come the jump cuts that flash several scenes what the audience is eagerly waiting for.
The official synopsis of Sanju reads, “Few lives in our times are as dramatic and enigmatic as the saga of Sanjay Dutt. Coming from a family of cinema legends, he himself became a film star, and then saw dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not be a terrorist.
Sanju is in turns a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of one man’s battle against his own wild self and the formidable external forces trying to crush him. It depicts the journey of a man through everything that life can throw at him. Some true stories leave you thinking “did this really happen?” This is one such unbelievable story that happens to be true.”
Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju will also stars an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani in pivotal roles.
Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox star studios, Sanju is all set to be released on June 29, 2018.
