‘Sanju’ Posters: Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt of the 90s

Ranbir Kapoor is coming back to the big screen with Sanju, based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. While the film’s teaser has sent fans into a tizzy, director Raju Hirani has spiked our interest further by releasing posters of the film where Ranbir looks freakishly like Sanjay Dutt. Take a look at Sanju from the 90s.

Ranbir Kapoor looks freakishly similar to Sanjay Dutt in all the teasers and posters shared by the makers. Here’s the same look from the trailer vis-a-vis the real Sanjay Dutt:

In this poster, Ranbir sports Dutt as he looked when he was released from prison in 2016.

Promising fans that he will reveal new stills and posters from Sanju every day, the director had earlier tweeted, “Starting tomorrow, I’m going to put out posters and production stills of Ranbir as Sanju. A new one every day. Hope you like it. #RanbirKapoor #RajkumarHiraniFilms @VVCFilms @foxstarhindi.”

Watch Sanjay Dutt in a song from Sadak:

The multi-starrer has Paresh Rawal on board to play Sunil Dutt (Sanjay’s father) and Manisha Koirala to essay Nargis (Sanjay’s mother).

Also starring Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Boman Irani, Vicky Kaushal, Karishma Tanna and Jim Sarbh, the film will narrate the tumulous life of Dutt until his release from the Yerwada Jail in Pune a few years back.

Here’s how the makers have described the film on YouTube: “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. (sic).”

The film has been produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios.

The much-awaited film will hit theatres on June 29, 2018.
