Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju is doing a wonderful business at the box office. The movie is based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. The talented star cast of the movie is being praised for spectacular performances. It goes without saying that it was a Ranbir Kapoor film but despite him, there were some amazing actors who proved that even the supporting cast can steal the thunder from protagonist. Yes, we are talking about Paresh Rawal and Vicky Kaushal. One played Sunil Dutt and the latter brilliantly essayed the role of Sanjay’s close friend Kamli.
It is hard to imagine any actor other than Paresh playing the role of Sanjay’s father to perfection. But do you know, Sunil sent a birthday wish to Paresh, hours before his death. The actor recently shared it on social media.
He tweeted, “The letter delivered exactly 5 days before my birthday and on the same day Dutt Saab passed away.The role offered in 2017 jan - 12 years later !!!”

It reads, “Dear Paresh Ji! As your birthday falls on 30th May, let me wish you all the happiness, prosperity and good luck in life, May God shower his choicest blessings on you and your family.”
We guess, Paresh was destined to play Sunil Dutt in Sanjay’s biopic.
On a related note, along with Ranbir, Sanju also featured Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in pivotal roles. The movie has minted Rs 265 crore in just ten days of its release.
