Rajkumar Hirani to play the role of THIS director in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic?

Time and again, we have seen directors making a short or blink and miss appearance in their movies. In fact, Subhash Ghai was the first to start this trend. The latest one was that of Anurag Basu in ‘Jagga Jasoos’. And now, if reports are to be believed, then Rajkumar Hirani too is going to continue the tradition by playing a small role in Sanjay Dutt‘s biopic. But, do you know that he will playing the role of none other than Subhash Ghai? Yes, that is true.

A source has told a leading daily, “Hirani will play the role of director Subhash Ghai, whose films Dutt has been a part of, most notably among them being ‘Khalnayak’. Hirani’s character will approach Ranbir (Dutt) to make a biopic on him and joke about it in the film though it later turned out to be a reality!” [sic] Reportedly, this will be a cameo appearance in the film that stars actor Ranbir Kapoor playing the titular role of Sanjay Dutt.

Though Rajkumar Hirani has done cameos in films like ‘Luck by Chance’ (2009) and ‘Shamitabh’ (2015), this will be the first time that he will be seen playing a cameo in his own directorial and that too a different character and not himself.

Well, it would be quite interesting to see him playing the showman Subhash Ghai on big screen.

Don’t you agree with us?

However, an official confirmation is still awaited on this report.

Talking about the film, it features Paresh Rawal as late Sunil Dutt and Dia Mirza as Dutt’s wife Maanayata. Manisha Koirala will be essaying the role of Sanjay Dutt’s mother, late actress Nargis. Apart from them, Sonam Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Anushka Sharma (in a cameo appearance) will also be seen playing pivotal parts in it.

The film is slated to release on March 30, 2018.
