Yes, Ram Gopal Varma Is Now Making the ‘Real’ Film on Sanjay Dutt

Those who have been complaining that Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju was nothing but an attempt to give a clean chit to Sanjay Dutt have reason to cheer. Ram Gopal Varma has just confirmed that he will be making a film that tells the real story of Sanjay Dutt.

While Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju has raked in over Rs 300 crore at the box-office, it has also been ripped apart for whitewashing the actor’s bad boy image, especially his link to the 1993 serial bombings in Mumbai and his possession of an AK-56.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ram Gopal Varma’s tell all will focus on this phase of Dutt’s life alone. While RGV has set out to make the “real” Sanju, we still don’t know who will be playing Dutt’s role this time round. Also, how exactly is Sanjay Dutt going to react to RGV’s new pet project?

Sanjay Dutt has worked with Ram Gopal Varma on two films so far - the 1997 crime caper Daud and more recently in Department, which released in 2012. Both these films failed at the box-office.
