Rajkumar Hirani’s latest directorial ‘Sanju’ is a massive blockbuster of all times. The film has collected over Rs 250 crores in just 10 days of release. It has received positive reviews from fans as well as critics. The film based on the controversial life of Sanjay Dutt has been beautifully depicted on the screen and Actor Ranbir Kapoor has truly lived the character.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has also seen the film. Gadkari was speaking about the contribution of art and artists to the society during a felicitation programme in Nagpur. During his talk, he said that Sanju is a beautiful film.

Gadkari said, “I have seen the film. It’s a beautiful film. It shows how certain perception in the media, police and judiciary can adversely affect someone. It had severely disturbed the lives of both Sunil Dutt and his son Sanjay.”

He further said, “Late Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray had once told me that Sanjay Dutt was completely innocent. I always say that the media should be extra careful when it is writing about any bank or any individual. It takes a lot of effort and hardship to shape up a life of distinction, but it takes little to destroy it. The power of pen can be more destructive than an atom bomb.”

The idea of a biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life was disliked by many. This was because he was even referred to as ‘traitor’ after he was arrested in 1993 for possessing an AK-56 rifle and charged under Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act and Arms Act. He was suspected to be connected with 1993 Mumbai blasts.

Sanjay Dutt is back to films after completing his term of imprisonment. He made a comeback with the film ‘Bhoomi’ last year. And now, he will be next seen in ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3’.
