Ever since Farhan tasted success with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Bollywood seems to have become obsessed with Biopics. Recent times have seen a deluge of real life stories being given Filmi Avatar, with Mary Kom and Dangal, creating a flutter at box office.
In a way, it is much easier to mould a real life story into fiction than creating an original convincing storyline. And, it is an old time tested Hollywood formula, slowly gaining mileage in India.
However, to make movies on living people, especially revealing their private lives on screen, does have it’s own dangers. Including controversies about the family of that person and creating unnecessary upheavals in his/her ex associates.
The latest public figure to bite the bullet is Sanjay Dutt. Reportedly Rajkumar Hirani is making a movie on his life, with Ranbir Kapoor playing the central role. Ranbir has put on 13 kgs weight, learned Sanjay’s unique stutter and is bearing a mustachioed look.
Earlier, there were rumors that Madhuri Dixit Sanjay Dutt affair would be a prominent theme of the movie. However, in a recent interview to Mid day, Madhuri denied these reports. Though, it is confirmed now that Dia Mirza will be playing Sanjay’s Wife, while Manisha Koirala would be his mother!
The movie is anticipated to be a big hit as Sanjay’s life is no less ordinary than a masala movie. He is one of the most controversial star of Bollywood. Despite being born to Industry’s most envied couple and having a solid political background to boast of, he has suffered imprisonment, drug addiction, bigamy charges and much more!
The storyline is for present, kept under folds, though loosely one can easily guess what it would be. Recently Ranbir created a storm by appearing in a look similar to the Vastav Hero, complete with tika and beard. Since then, the movie is creating waves in media.
Understandably, when it comes to Sanju Baba, boat is sure to rock!!
