Sanju Clocked 3 years On June 29, Some Unknown Facts On Ranbir’s Only Hit In Years



Ranbir Kapoor

Sanju: Some little known fact about the movie

1.     Ranbir Kapoor is a big  Sanjay Dutt fan. Long before Ranbir Kapoor  played Dutt he  told me  he hero-worshipped  Dutt and that  the senior actor would often  given him expensive gifts.They were  so close that at one  point Dutt called Ranbir  home  and  berated him for doing out-of-the-box films. ‘Yeh kya Barfi aur Laddoo  kar raha  hai?’.  Ranbir Kapoor could only  bow his head docilely and mumble. He said it was  bolti bandh for him before Baba.

2.     Before Sanju Ranbir Kapoor had flops and average earners:  Besharam(flop),  Roy(flop),  BombayVelvet(flop), Tamasha(flop), Ae Dil Hai  Mushkil(average) and Jagga Jasoos(Flop). Ranbir last  hit before Sanju was  Yeh Jawani Hai   Deewani in  2013.Sanju is  the biggest hit of his career.

3.     Was Sanju really a  bio-pic on Sanjay Dutt? There was no mention  of his  first wife Richa Sharma, or his daughter from  that marriage. There was no mention of  the second wife Rhea Pillai…There was  only one  woman in the cinematic Sanju’s life and she was played by Sonam  Kapoor who looked nothing like  a woman Dutt would date.And why was he shown putting a  toilet seat around her neck? No such incident happened in the real Sanjay Dutt’s life.And what  was  Vicky Kaushal playing? I  know all of Dutt’s  best friends  over  the years. Never seen  anyone like  Kamlesh “Kamli” Kanhaiyalal Kapasi.WTF !!!!

4.     Sanjay Dutt’s parents the legendary Nargis  and  Sunil Dutt  were played  by  Paresh Rawal and  Manisha Koirala who  didn’t resemble  the  originals from  any angle.Both looked too young to play Ranbir ‘Sanju’ Kapoor’s parents.Director Raj Kumar Hirani should have cast Sanjay Dutt as  Sunil Dutt and Tabu as Nargis.

5.     Sanju is  not  only Ranbir Kapoor’s  only hit in recent times it is  also his only release in the last three years. His next three releases Brahmastra,Shamshera  and Luv Ranjan’s rom-com won’t make it into theatres until  late 2022.Until then  fans can  enjoy  the Sanjay Dutt  bio-pic which was  as  close to Dutt as the Ganga to Mumbai.
