It is a known fact that Madhuri Dixit was dating Sanjay Dutt back in the early 90s. But as soon as Dutt was arrested in 1993 Bombay blasts, Madhuri started to maintain her distance, and as they say, rest is history. But decades later, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has decided to bring Sanju baba’s life on 70mm.
The shoot for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic is on in full swing and has become one of the highly anticipated films, all thanks to a series of pictures of leading man Ranbir Kapoor sharing an uncanny resemblance with the senior actor. The biopic will reportedly not only touch upon the actor’s professional life, his trials, tribulations, but will also give fans a peek into his love-life. While actresses like Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza have been roped in to play his love interests, reports state that Madhuri Dixit had approached director Rajkumar Hirani to remove any reference to her alleged link-up with the actor.
However, in an interview to Mid-Day, Madhuri rubbished the rumours and said, “For where I am today, this [the topic of Dutt] has become redundant. Life has come a long way since then. I don’t know where these reports are coming from. In any case, it doesn’t make a difference to me.”
There were reports that Karisma Tanna was supposed to essay the role of Madhuri Dixit in the biopic, but director Hirani decided to adhere Madhuri’s request. Ranbir Kapoor has stepped into the shoes of Sanjay Dutt for the biopic. Tentatively titled Dutt, the film will focus on Sanjay’s formative years, his relation with his father Sunil Dutt, his struggles coping up with the loss of his mother, his many affairs, etc.
The Dutt biopic will reportedly see Dia Mirza playing’s Sanjay’s wife Maanayata Dutt while Sonam Kapoor is believed to be an amalgamation of the actor’s former girlfriends in the early 90’s. Manisha Koirala, on the other hand, will play his late mother Nargis. Shooting for the film began on January 14, 2017, however, there have been no speculations about the release date yet.
