Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui recently said that biopics in Bollywood are corrupted and that a person's story should instead be shown as it is. Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni's biopic was also termed as a 'hagiography' which intensified the debate that only the good and positive parts of a person's character are depicted in movies based on their journey.
Now, with the much-awaited Sanjay Dutt biopic coming up, people started speculating that negative aspects like his drug addiction might not just be tweaked but might be completely omitted in the movie. However, in a recent interview, protagonist Ranbir Kapoor had something interesting to say on the topic. “With the Sanjay Dutt biopic, he’s been so honest about his life. He’s admitting to his mistakes. We’re not portraying a Gandhi like character. We’re portraying a very fraud man. He’s someone who is loved and disliked. He’s the most controversial, and to have the ability to tell about your life so honestly, and to make a movie out of it is very brave.”(Also read: REVEALED: Details about Anushka Sharma’s cameo in Sanjay Dutt's biopic)
He added, “If I was in his position, I don’t think I could be this honest about my life, and make myself look like a person who is not nice. If an audience can take something from that and learn something from his life, I think it’s a very positive thing.”
Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Sanjay Dutt' biopic will hit the theatres on 30th March 2018.(Also read: Rajkumar Hirani, in a tell-all, opens up about the Sanjay Dutt biopic)CREDITS: Deccan Chronicle
