There are innumerable reports about Sanjay Dutt’s biopic buzzing in the tinsel town. By now, everybody knows that Ranbir Kapoor will play Sanjay Dutt in the biopic.

Moreover, today itself it was learnt that actress Manisha Koirala will be bouncing back to Bollywood with the Dutt’s biopic where she will play Sanjay’s mother Nargis Dutt.

As per the latest inputs, Sanjay has revealed that he wanted to play his father Sunil Dutt in his biopic. As of now, this character will be essayed by versatile actor Paresh Rawal.

A source stated, “Sanjay has given over 200 hours of recording as a basic matter for the biopic. While Hirani was writing the film, Sanjay was toying with the idea of playing Sunil Dutt because as a father, he was the one person who had closely seen the ups and downs in his life. Sanjay was extremely close to his dad, and he thought he could emulate him better than any other actor.”

The source further added, “But he dropped the idea, even before letting his buddy Raju know what he had on his mind, and allowed him to choose an actor who’d be perfect to play the late actor.”

The touted flick, which will track Sanjay’s journey and will bring forth his vivid life experiences, will also feature Dia Mirza as Manyata Dutt, Sonam Kapoor as Dutt’s earlier love interest, Vicky Kaushal as his friend from US and Anushka Sharma as a journalist.
The film is being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra is bankrolling the project.
