Confirmed! Dia Mirza to play Maanayata Dutt in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic
Finally, the shooting of much-talked about biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role has begun. Reports had it that Neha Bajpayee (Manoj Bajpayee‘s wife) was roped in to play Sanjay Dutt‘s wife Maanayata Dutt in this film. But contrary to these reports, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has confirmed that it’s none other than ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ actress Dia Mirza, who has been signed in for this role.
He confirmed to a news agency and said, “Dia Mirza is doing the role of Maanayata.”
“It is a biopic and it is more than a biopic too because we expect people to learn something from it,” added the producer.
Well, it would be quite interesting to see Ranbir Kapoor romancing Dia Mirza in this film, helmed by Rajkumar Hirani.

Apart from them, veteran actor Paresh Rawal would essay the role of late Sunil Dutt, Sanjay’s father.
