This film is the director-actor duo’s first collaboration. Hirani who is known to be the most successful director of Bollywood has surpassed the movie collections of all his previous films with Sanju. The film is based on Hirani’s close friend and Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt.
The biopic is a journey of Dutt’s turmoiled life, it deals with a few chapters of his life, his stint in jail and addiction to drugs. The film which stars many seasoned actors like Paresh Rawal and Manisha Koirala has been garnering rave reviews for its performances. Critics and audience have called it Ranbir Kapoor’s best performance so far. It also has been criticised for being a sort of PR agenda for Dutt but that has failed to affect its marathon run. Sanju has an ensemble cast which also includes Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Jim Sarbh and Vicky Kaushal.
