Talk of perfect makeover, and Ranbir Kapoor may have pulled off Bollywood’s biggest ‘transformation’ for Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt. Latest pictures from the sets of the film have surfaced online and Ranbir looks exactly like young Sanjay Dutt.

Isn’t that surprisingly exact resemblance?

While Paresh Rawal has been roped in for Sunil Dutt’s role, Sonam Kapoor plays Sanjay’s earlier love interest. Vicky Kaushal is his friend from the US, Anushka Sharma essays the role of a journalist and Manisha Koirala plays Nargis - Sanjay’s mother - whose death in 1981 from pancreatic cancer, affected him deeply.

Sanjay has given around 200 hours of recording as basic matter for the biopic. Ranbir will be seen portraying three phases of Sanjay Dutt’s life in which he will be seen in three avatars with a beefy body and then a lean look from 90’s and the third avatar will showcase his phase in drug rehab.

The shooting of the film began in January.

As part of his preparation for the role, Ranbir has gained more than 13kg of weight which comprises of muscle and no fat to match up with the muscular physique of Sanjay Dutt.

The untitled biopic will be the first one to be made on a Bollywood star.

Sanjay Dutt, 57, will make a comeback Omung Kumar’s Bhoomi.
