It is known to all that Ranbir Kapoor will be starring in Sanjay Dutt's biopic. Well, it comes as no surprise that Sanjay himself is very much involved in the film. The film though has been facing many difficulties as there are many big names involved, Sanjay preferably has only allowed a few parts of his life to be highlighted in the film.
The film is to be helmed by director Rajkumar Hirani and will be produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The story is carefully crafted keeping in mind the many celebrities involved in Sanjay’s life. While Ranbir is all prepped up to play Sanjay Dutt, Sanjay feels that the actor doesn’t fit the bill. At a recent dinner party held at Dutt’s house, apparently, Sanjay got drunk and ended up insulting Ranbir for not doing macho films.
According to a report in DNA, Sanjay had thrown a party at his house, and present there was Ranbir, Rajkumar Hirani, and David Dhawan. Ranbir was the only one in the group who was neither drinking nor smoking. Sanjay approached Ranbir and said, “I want to produce a film starring you,” Ranbir replied with an ‘Of course’. This was just the beginning, Sanjay then continued, “The film is called Laddoo.” In a questionable tone, Ranbir repeated the name of the film. To this Sanjay retorted, “Yes, after that we will make films called Imarti, Jalebi, and then Peda.” What followed post this conversation was awkwardness between the guests, but Sanjay was not to stop there.
Sanjay soon added, “I watched 'Barfi!' on TV recently. What made you do a film like that? @#$^&* bloody hell, you are playing me in the Sanjay Dutt biopic. I don't know how they cast you.
” By now everyone just wanted the conversation to end, but Sanjay was in no place to take the clue. He continued, “You should be a macho man. Act in macho films. You can't be doing films like 'Barfi!'. You should be holding guns and doing action films. Do you think actors like me, Salman, and Ajay would have been around for so many years if we had not played macho characters on screen?
Ranbir was left speechless as there was nothing that could stop Sanjay. Dutt then went on to say that Ranbir had no connect with the masses and that it is very important for him to have that connect. RK junior was left with absolutely nothing to say and didn’t even feel right to answer back. Sanjay went on to lecture Ranbir for a long time post the conversation. What came to RK’s relief was Manaayata who walked into the room to call out everyone for dinner to gorge on some delicious biryani.
