Ranbir Kapoor has been sporting a muscular look of late as part of his preparations for the biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life. The actor has gained close to 13 kg in muscle to resemble Dutt’s physique, and he has also adopted Dutt’s unique strut. Besides the physical changes, Ranbir was also spotted wearing a wig resembling Dutt’s hairstyle from the ‘90s while shooting for the Rajkumar Hirani directorial. Now, sources close to the actor reveal that Ranbir, to look even more authentic, is planning to sport the exact same tattoos that Sanjay has on various parts of his body.

A source says, “Ranbir has put in a lot of effort to adopt Sanjay’s gait and body language, which was difficult. Sanjay had provided around 200 hours of footage of him walking to make the job easier. While Ranbir is currently shooting for the portions where Sanjay is young, the team has started putting together all that they need to figure out for the other schedule, which will show Ranbir play a much older Sanjay. Everyone knows that Sanjay has a lot of tattoos on his body, so Ranbir is now contemplating getting them on his body as well. Sanjay’s tattoos are so intricate that Ranbir will have to sit down with the original tattoo artist to get a similar look.”

Ranbir had previously gotten Awaara in the Devanagari script tattooed on his wrist for his role in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013).
