Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju to be screened at The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani and actor Vicky Kaushal, whose "Sanju" has fetched good box office collections, will screen the movie on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt for students from La Trobe University in Australia as part of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) next month.

Hirani will introduce the film, talk about Sanjay and show the children the biopic.

"It's always an enriching experience when people of different diaspora watch our films. I look forward to the special screening of 'Sanju' for the students at La Trobe. It would be an interesting experience to see the reactions of those who are almost alien to Hindi films and the life of Sanjay Dutt," Hirani said in a statement.

Hirani and Kaushal will also champion the cause of inclusion -- the theme of IFFM this year. The gala will take place from August 10-22.

On the theme, Hirani said: "I'm looking forward to the festival this year, especially since the festival is championing the theme of inclusion in cinema. I look forward to being in Melbourne."

At the box office, Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju has been having a phenomenal run. Although some are criticizing the filmmaker saying that Sanju is just a 'PR stunt' to clean up the actor's image, the audience gave it a thumbs up with a record-breaking collection.

"Sanju" features a cast including Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal and Sonam Kapoor.
