We have finally managed to get our hands on the pictures of the exclusive look test of Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt, in the Dutt biopic. Doesn’t she share a striking resemblance with Nargis? See for yourself:
It has already been reported that Manisha has changed her hairstyle to look like Nargis in the film and she has even started to do her make-up the way Nargis did. We have also been told that once Sanjay Dutt saw her in the make-up, he got very emotional. The biopic on Sanjay is being helmed by Raju Hirani, with Ranbir Kapoor playing the lead role, as Sanjay Dutt. His look in the film has also garnered lots of appreciation on the internet. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal and Dia Mirza.
According to reports, Sonam plays the role of the actress Tina Munim, while Anushka has been cast as a journalist. Manisha Koirala will essay the role of Sanjay’s mum, Nargis, while Dias Mirza will be seen playing the role of Sanjay's wife Maanyata.
The film is set to release in June this year, although we’re all still waiting to find out the name of the biopic. The production house confirmed through a tweet, “The no-holds-barred story of Sanjay Dutt, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, #Dutt Biopic releasing on June 29! A Fox Star Studios presentation, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani. #Ranbir Kapoor.”
This biopic sounds more interesting as the release date draws nearer! We can’t wait to watch it!
