Sanjay Dutt on ‘Sanju’: Whatever is the truth has been shown in the film
Ranbir Kapoor‘s latest film ‘Sanju’ has taken the entire nation by storm. Based on the life of Sanjay Dutt, ‘Sanju’ is not just the highest opening film at the box office this year so far, but also of Ranbir’s career.
At the trailer launch of his latest film ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3′, Sanjay Dutt, when asked about his reactions on ‘Sanju’, he said, “Ranbir (Kapoor) is extraordinary in the film. I think the film is fantastic and Raju ji (Rajkumar Hirani), Vicky Kaushal, and everybody has done a fantastic job. Whatever is the truth, has been shown in the film.”
In the trailer of ‘Sanju’ we all heard a dialogue where Sanju says that he must have done a lot of wrong things in his life but out of all things that people accuse him to be, he is not a terrorist. So the actor was asked what made him do a film on gangster (a term he would otherwise he would not like to be associated with), Dutt said jokingly, “Shayad gangster mere andar hi hai. And even when I left jail people were saying they want gangster. So here I am (referring to his film ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3’). But I am very polished gangster who is also Khaandani.”
Sharing about what made him take up this film, Dutt said, “I wouldn’t do a film if there was no comfort level. This is a very emotional character as he can go to any lengths for love. So these are the core values of this gangster in this film and I had a lot of fun doing it. I like playing my age and I like to do commercial cinema. I actually like all genres – action, comedy, whatever it might be.”
When he was asked who plays the best gangster in films, Sanjay Dutt said, “We have many actors. Salman plays a good gangster. I think Ranveer Singh can also be great. And, now even Ranbir. I think these guys have the appropriate body language that is required to play a gangster on screen.”
