Sanjay Dutt’s character in Raj Kumar Hirani’s biopic is being played by Ranbir Kapoor and now it has been confirmed that Dia Mirza will be playing Maanyata Dutt, the role of Sanjay’s wife.
The Deccan Chronicle quoted a source who said, “Sanjay Dutt met Maanyata when he was in his 40s. So, it’s not as if Ranbir and Dia will look like a mismatch. Dia has worked before with producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani in Munnabhai MBBS. Both Chopra and Hirani felt that Dia had the right, serene personality to carry off the role of a wife who waits patiently for the monstrous tangles in her husband’s life to be sorted out.”
It will be interesting to see Ranbir and Dia’s on-screen chemistry!
