In a bid to finish editing his upcoming movie PK, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has been hard at work, with limited social interactions and outings. But the one person he is in constant touch with is Sanjay Dutt, who stars in the film. Since the actor is currently lodged in Pune’s Yerwada Jail, they have been communicating via handwritten letters.

It was one such letter sent by Dutt that got Hirani emotionally charged a few days back. “In the most recent letter, Sanjay sir wrote about the first poster of the film (in which Aamir is pictured in the nude), as his fellow inmates have been raving about it. He was very excited as they had given him good reviews for the poster. In fact, a few inmates are even pulling Sanjay sir’s leg, asking whether the poster featuring him will also show him in buff,” says an insider close to Hirani.

Dutt, on his part, gets limited and delayed news from the outside world. “He gets to read only old newspapers in prison. And since the first poster was only printed in newspapers, he has no idea about the second lot of posters — one of which features him. He also wrote that he is really excited about his own poster,” adds the insider.

On being contacted, Hirani confirmed the news.
