While fans and the film industry are busy applauding Ranbir Kapoor for his outstanding act in the ‘Sanju’ trailer, there are few who thought otherwise. Among them was superstar Salman Khan who thought Ranbir was not the best choice to play Sanjay Dutt in the much awaited bio-pic.
Salman Khan, who was questioned about what he felt about the Sanju trailer at the promotions of Race 3 wondered why Sanjay Dutt himself didn’t play the role, portraying the last 7-8 years of his life. He went on to say that Sanjay Dutt would have done a much better job, and no one would be able to match that.
While Ranbir remained mum about Salman’s comment, he finally decided to speak up at a recently held event. He said, "It has never happened that a person played himself in his own biopic. This destroys the effect of a character. I knew that I will be compared to Sanjay Dutt and that is why I have tried my best to do justice to his role. Whether people see me in 40-year old Sanjay Dutt's avatar or 20-year old, they should feel that they are watching an artist who is playing Sanjay Dutt. It is correct that I cannot become a second Sanjay Dutt," he added.
Well said Ranbir! Sanju is all set to release on the 18th of June and we can’t wait!
