If all goes according to plan,

Rajkumar Hirani

will soon be helming a biopic on Sanjay Dutt.



A well-placed source in the industry has revealed that the film-maker will be co-producing the project with the actor’s wife, Manyata.



The source tells us, "

Sanjay

and Raju (Hirani) had a discussion a long time ago. Sanjay had told him to guide him on films that his production houses is involved in."



Hirani, who is also directing the project, has already begun research on the film. The source says, "Raju isn’t fond of donning the producer’s hat. He’s doing it for his next with Aamir and has agreed to do it for Sanjay’s biopic only because they both go back a long time. The film will go into pre-production after Raju’s December release. As of now, Ranbir Kapoor has liked the script, but no cast has been finalised yet. Sanjay’s life story is vast and involves a lot of minute detailing."
