Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju is receiving praise from all over, and rightly so. From Ranbir’s on point portrayal of Sanjay Dutt to his captivating performance, fans can’t stop speaking about the Rajkumar Hirani film. The movie was released on Jun 29 and has smashed Box Office by crossing Rs 100 crore mark in just three days of its release. The entire team of Sanju is humbled and busy thanking audience for their immense love and support.
One of the main parts that got us hooked in the biopic was Sanjay Dutt/s addiction with drugs and his struggle to beat it. Considering that phase played a very prominent role in Sanjay Dutt’s life, Ranbir Kapoor didn’t leave a single stone unturned in playing it impressively. Much to everyone’s surprise, at a recent event Ranbir himself spoke about his personal experience with drugs. Ranbir revealed that he had taken drugs when he was young but he didn’t fall victim to its addiction. He said, “I have tried drugs when I was in college and got into bad influence. But I realised that nothing will happen in life if I continue with drugs. When we did that section, I did a lot of research”. However, he confessed he is addicted to nicotine and that’s one thing he can’t give up on. He revealed, “Every man makes mistakes in his life. I am addicted to nicotine now and it’s worse than drugs. And I have addiction for sweets as well”.
He also praised Sanjay Dutt for showing enough courage to quit drugs at the right point in life. He said, “This film is a good learning for children and youth that five-minutes of ecstasy can destroy your entire life. It’s the worst thing possible. Sanjay was much stronger, a fighter who came out of it and became a star”
Apart from Ranbir, Sanju also features Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles.
