MUMBAI: After pictures from the sets of Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju leaked online, Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has been receiving accolades for not only looking like Sanjay Dutt but also channelling his gait and persona.
Ranbir plays the role of Khalnayak actor in the upcoming biopic, Sanju. And now, Ranbir has the approval right from where it matters – Sanjay Dutt himself. In an interview, the 58-year-old actor has said Ranbir is “doing a fantastic job”.
Speaking to the tabloid, Sanjay said, “There is no advice for Ranbir Kapoor. He is doing a fantastic job. Whatever I have seen on the sets of the movie, it is really great. I just wish him all the best and I am looking forward to watch the movie.”
Interestingly, Sanjay’s close friend Salman Khan had recently told , “ For Sanju, I was thinking why is somebody else playing this bit? The last 8-10 years. You cannot do justice to that. Sanju should have played the last bit.”
The film is slated to hit theatres on June 29 and features Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Dia Mirza and Jim Sarbh among several others.
