Ranbir Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Vijay Singh (CEO Fox-Star Studios) launched the Sanju teaser at a multiplex in Mumbai and shared some interesting insights about the film, which is one of the most anticipated films of the year. While the teaser has won acclaim all across, the team believes that this is just the beginning and they would unveil a lot of other things in the theatrical trailer, which is expected to be out in the last week of May.
At the press conferences, when Ranbir Kapoor was asked as to what the easiest and most challenging part in the film was, the actor said,
“Difficult chapter was the young Sanju, because there was a lot that happened in his life – the drug abuse part, he lost his mother and a lot of other things. As far as easiest part is concerned, I had a lot of fun shooting for his life around the time when Munnabhai released.”
The actor also revealed that he learnt a lot from Rajkumar Hirani while shooting for the film, however believes that there is no formula for success.
“If we had a formula for success, everyone would have been a superstar. I am learning from my failures and like they say, it is just a bend and not the end. Life is too long and we need to keep working. What I learnt from Raju Sir is the power of entertainer. I learnt to make film for the audience and it is such a terrific. I have been a part of lot of good films and more bad films. I have understood the power of film that reaches out to a large section of audience from Raju Sir. Not that I would make all good films, but I have learnt it,” said Ranbir.
When asked if at all a biopic on his life will be made in the future, the actor said that he wouldn’t mind to let someone make his biopic, however it won’t earn any money. He said,
“My life is very boring, don’t think my biopic will earn money.”
Film Director Rajkumar Hirani confirmed that they have not added any element of fiction in the story and have tried to stay true to the incidents that took place in Sanjay Dutt’s life.
“I don’t think we have added fiction, but I would say sometimes we need to dramatize something or make an attempt to make the incidents that took place in real life funnier. We have made an effort to stay real. In this film, we have toned down a few things, but we have not added any fiction,” said the director.
Hirani also confirmed that a proper theatrical trailer of the film will be unveiled closer to the release and that would give an insight about the huge ensemble cast of the film. He said, “We will be unveiling a full theatrical trailer soon. We have Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma who play very interesting role in the film and they have all done fantastic job. We will introduce all characters in the trailer.”
Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Fox Star Studios, Sanju is slated to release on 29th June 2018.
