Ranbir Kapoor has impressed everyone with his performance in the upcoming biopic Sanju.

One of the most awaited biopics, Sanju is just a few days from its release. The film has Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. And after watching the trailer we can say it without any doubt that nobody could have done it better.

The director Rajkumar Hirani, in a conversation with media, revealed why he chose the actor for his film. He said, “The reason why I chose Ranbir was firstly because I was looking for a young actor who can play a 21 year old to a 55 year old when Sanjay came out of the jail. Next thing I wanted the physicality to match. A major chunk of the film is Sanju in the 80s. If you see Ranbir’s phase of Saawariya and Sanju’s phase of Rocky, both of them were lean. So that matched really well. The real challenge was to make Ranbir look like the older Sanju.”

Hirani felt that Ranbir was someone who could not only just pull off Dutt’s looks, but also the soul of his character. “I thought that the height is same, face too has some similarities, both of them come from filmy backgrounds, both of their fathers have been actors. So it wasn’t just about the looks. I wanted the actor to feel the way the character had felt. And Ranbir has spent quite a time with Sanju. So I thought that he would be able to pull off the role,” said the director.

Apart from Ranbir Kapoor, Sanju also stars Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles. The film will be releasing on June 29, this year.
