Strict rules on Rajkumar Hirani's sets!


Mumbai, March 28 -- After many workshops and a lot of preparation, Rajkumar Hirani's next film, a biopic on Sanjay Dutt's life, has gone on the floors.

However, the filmmaker's plans to keep the cast's looks a secret were spoilt when Ranbir Kapoor, who is playing Dutt in the movie, was spotted in one of his costumes. Ranbir has put on a few kilos, and is looking bulkier.

Now, HT Cafe has learnt that Hirani has instructed his cast, especially people who have a specific get-up, to not make many appearances in public so they can keep their look a secret.

A source says, "Hirani's film sets are guarded well to prevent information leaks. This biopic on Dutt has generated immense curiosity, so he is being even stricter with his cast. Vicky Kaushal, who plays Dutt's best friend, has been asked to stay away from attending any events or parties as they don't want anyone to find out how he looks."

The source added that mobile phones are banned on the set, and except for Hirani's crew, very few people are allowed to hang around the sets.

"Ranbir has also been asked to make as few public appearances as he can. Manisha Koirala, too, will have to sport a particular look, and right now, her clothes and accessories are being finalised. Hirani wants the audience to see everything on the big screen, and is taking steps to ensure no pictures or information gets leaked," the source says.
