Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor directed by Rajkumar Hirani is now shifting gears of promotion with new poster/production still every day. Yesterday we saw a close up look of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt in which Hirani has tried to depict the pain of Sanju. Let’s see what they have in store for us today.
The makers have revealed a new poster which is no different from what we have seen before, but as a standalone poster this one also holds its charm. Rajkumar Hirani took his Twitter account to unveil the same and captioned the image as “One more 2016 look of Ranbir as #Sanju! Will post 90’s look tomorrow. #RanbirKapoor #RajkumarHiraniFilms @VVCFilms @foxstarhindi.”

While Hirani is making a film on Sanjay’s life now, the BBC had made a documentary on the controversial actor’s life back in 1996. It was titled To Hell and Back.
Asked whether he ever thought of making a documentary on Sanjay’s life instead of doing it in a fictionalised format, Hirani said: “Certain subjects will be more engaging if they are done in a fiction format and certain subjects would probably be more interesting in a documentary format.”
“PK was the only film which I started with reverse where I wanted to talk about God and religion, but in the journey of making that film, I realised that I am ending up talking very little about it. There is so much to talk about God and religion that you cannot actually say enough in a fictional format.”
“In a fictional format, it is expected that you have to sugarcoat your story, entertain the audience and still manage to say what you want to say. So, at some stage, I do want to make a documentary.”
“There are still unsaid or undiscussed issues that I haven’t been able to show in ‘PK’, so I want to do a documentary where you can say what you want to say. But in a film like Sanju, I think it’s more engaging as a fictional film where you see another actor doing it.”
“If you would simply pick up a mike (microphone) and say, ‘Okay, there is a man who did drugs, who had a gun and did other things then’, it’s boring. I feel biopics are more interesting when you see it in a fictional format. Otherwise, it gets boring.”
Sanju also stars Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza and Tabu.
