After Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Sanju’ we are eagerly looking forward to these eight biopics 

It is said that cinema is a mirror of the society as sometimes our films depict what happens in real life and sometimes we just imitate what happens on the silver screen. Out of all the genre of films, biopics are something that always fascinates everyone as we get to know a real-life person so closely that in those 2-3 hours we actually end up living that person’s life. Learning from the person’s mistakes and getting inspired by their journey is one of the major takeaways of these biopics.

Recently we saw Sanjay Dutt‘s life translated on the celluloid as ‘Sanju’ which was helmed by the talented filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani. Ranbir Kapoor‘s portrayal of Sanjay Dutt was very impactful and garnered praises from the critics as well as audiences.
