Currently, Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Sanju’ is one of the hottest topics in B-town and any news related to the movie creates an immense buzz. We all know that Rajkumar Hirani has roped in Paresh Rawal to play Sanjay Dutt’s father, Sunil Dutt in the film, but Paresh was not his first choice. In an interview with Outlook, Hirani revealed that he wanted Aamir Khan to play that role. Then why didn’t Aamir grab the offer?

Well, speaking on this, the director replied, “Aamir is a friend. Any script I write, I bounce it to him. When I narrated ‘Sanju’ to him, he loved it and said, ‘Main bhi kuch karta hoon (I should also do something in it).’ Then I said, do this (Sunil Dutt’s role). But he was already doing the role of an elderly man in ‘Dangal’ (2016) around the same time.” So this was the reason that Mr. Perfectionist has to refuse this film.

While Hirani couldn’t manage to sign Aamir for the film, fans will see Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Karishma Tanna, Jim Sarbh, Boman Irani and Vicky Kaushal in it.

The official trailer is reported to come out this week, and the film will hit the big screen on June 29.
