Ranbir Kapoor’s latest release ‘Sanju’ has been doing wonders on the box office. The film is inching towards Rs 300 crores making it one of the highest grosser of all times. More than that, the film got massive response from critics as well as fans as they can’t stop praising the hard work of the entire team. People have once again fallen in love with Rajkumar Hirani as he always gives a blockbuster. Moreover, people can’t stop gushing over Ranbir Kapoor who did an exceptionally well job in portraying Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. Even Sanja himself is amazed and overwhelmed with his portrayal and for the rest of the characters too.
Now when we have seen Ranbir imitating Sanjay Dutt so well, the latter is afraid that Ranbir might replace him. Director Rajkumar Hirani revealed, “When Ranbir became Munna Bhai for this film, I in my excitement showed it to Sanju and Sanju’s immediate response was: ‘I hope I’m doing Munna Bhai 3’.”
Ranbir reveals why playing Munna Bhai on the big screen was a humongous challenge for him. “Munna Bhai is one of my favourite looks and one of my favourite films. This is amazing. I don’t think I could ever create such an iconic character. But it feels great that there is a little part that I can emulate.”
Talking about his transformation, he said, “I think it must have been the 13th or… I don’t know ya, I lost count when we got the look right. What’s important is that when you see it on screen, the viewers shouldn’t see how much we have worked on it… you’ll only see how it is.”
He further said, “The first challenge was to get the look right, which we managed. Now we had a huge task like Mount Everest ahead of us – how to perform like Sanjay Dutt? Because I was playing Munna Bhai on screen, I can’t screw that up.”
Sanjay Dutt is currently waiting for the release of his upcoming film ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3’. On the other hand, Ranbir Kapoor will be next seen in ‘Brahmastra’ alongside Alia Bhatt.
