Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has zeroed in on Sonam Kapoor to play an actor from the 1980s and 1990s in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, opposite Ranbir Kapoor.

Mumbai Mirror reports that the director confirmed that Sonam has joined the cast of the biopic. She will be seen romancing childhood friend Ranbir Kapoor, who plays the role of Dutt in the film. Incidentally, the two actors made their acting debut together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya ten years ago.
The romantic drama bombed at the box office and the two never worked together after the same. There was conjecture about how the two industry kids do not get along anymore. However, putting all rumors to rest, they are all set to share the screen space yet again.
Sonam’s is a special appearance in the film. Not that she’s representing a specific lady in Dutt’s life but she’ll be forming many of them in one personality. Perhaps, this is to save the identity of all the women Sanjay has dated. As we already told you, RK Jr will be donning three looks in the film. It was revealed earlier that he is going to go through the massive transformation of the film. Of course, we won’t be able to see much of it but we just hope Kapoor keeps dropping hints of the same. It’s quite exciting to see both the Kapoors face camera once again, don’t you think? Yes, they’ve had a history and blah blah but you can’t deny that they did look fab when they made their debut.
The fact that it’s gonna be a romantic angle between them itself calls for some excitement. A lot of actresses in the past were associated with this role. From Kangana Ranaut to Deepika Padukone to Katrina Kaif, all names were said to romance him in the film. However, at the end of the day, it’s Sonam who has managed to bag the role. Can’t wait to see these two sizzles on the silver screen!
