The teaser of Sanjay Dutt's biopic titled Sanju was dropped online today by makers. Fans were waiting for the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer with bated breath and we have to say it was worth waiting for. It will be aired across 80+ TV channels for two days along with the channels telecasting IPL matches.
The teaser begins with Ranbir Kapoor coming out of Yerwada jail where Sanjay Dutt was lodged. We get to see myriad shades of Ranbir as he plays middle-aged Sanjay, drug-addict young Sanjay and also the Sanjay Dutt living a lavish life in New York. The teaser also shows Ranbir aka Sanju begging on the streets for a bus ticket. The Tamasha actor has owned every frame, pulling off different looks and Dutt's mannerisms quite well.
Meanwhile, have a look at the poster of Sanju.

In an interview with DNA, Hirani revealed the reason behind choosing Ranbir for the film. He said: ''Hmmm. Why Ranbir? The first reason for choosing him is that he’s a fantastic actor. And the second reason is that he is at the perfect age. I needed an actor who could be 21 (years old) because that is where the film begins. That was the age when Sanju was shooting for Rocky and his drug phase started. And then we have Sanju when he came out of prison (around 56 years). So, we needed someone who could fit that transformation''. Hirani shares a very close bond with Sanjay Dutt and help revived the actor's career with hit Munnabhai MBBS.
The movie will present ups and downs, also touching controversial aspects of the actor's life. So far, makers have managed to keep things under the wraps, triggering excitement from fans. The flick is slated to hit theatres in June
