At the recent trailer launch of the film, Ranbir revealed how Sanjay has always been a hero to him. Asked how he felt portraying various phases of Sanjay’s life, Ranbir said: “When I was a child, I had a poster of Sanju sir on the wall of my cupboard, and through this film, I am in his shoes. I think in my life, I really want Sanju sir to like me.
“I know I never can be the man he is, but in whichever way that I go about in my career as a person and even through this film, I really want Sanju sir to like me because I feel that he is man that I respect a lot and I really look up to him. I hope that he feels that I have represented his life in a very honest and improved way.”
Ranbir also revealed how tough it was to play Sanjay. “As an actor, I was very excited to play this part. So, it doesn’t bother you that much but when I was acting I was really imagining what he must be going through because I am just acting in the film putting make-up and stuff, so I think just thinking about what he must be going through was such an inspiration for me that the film was fairly easy. And also to have an incredible cast and Raju sir (director Rajkumar Hirani) around me, everything was smooth sailing,” he said.
Sanju is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal, Jim Sarbh, Boman Irani and Vicky Kaushal. The film is releasing on June 29.
