If you thought that filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who has closely worked with Sanjay Dutt in films like MUNNABHAI MBBS and LAGEY RAHO MUNNA BHAI, well chalked out a plan to make a biopic on him, then let us tell you that it was an impromptu decision taken.

“I had no plans to do this film. After PK, I was about to write another Munnabhai film. But once Sanju was out on a parole for 3 months, I went to meet him and we had good lengthy conversation. He was going through a bad phase and this time around he was prepared to anyhow clear it as he would be set free post that. In that frame of mind he started talking about his childhood. I thought I'll go and spend an hour with him but surprisingly I ended up staying for 8 hours. He shared a lot about his life with me. I was very moved. Then, eventually Abhijat Joshi, Sanju and I started meeting regularly. We sat constantly for 25 days. Every day after the PK edit, we used to leave by 5 or 6 o clock in the evening, reach his house, and be there till 3 in the morning. While all this was going, I discovered that the man with whom I had worked on three films together, I just knew 1% of him. Sanju is way beyond to what we have been seeing. There are so many things about him that are hidden and unknown to us (Uske Andar Itna Kuch Tha Jo Usne Humko Bataya Hi Nahi Apne Life Ke Baare Mein). I at once saw a film there,” Raju shares on how he decided to make a biopic.
 
But ask him how close he is to Sanjay and if the said biopic would present him in a good light and Raju clears, “I do know Sanju but it's not that he is a regular or closest buddy. I was friends with him just like any other actor or director. There's no intention to glorify him. Neither we are putting him in a good or bad light nor do we want to sound like his spokesperson.”

Quiz Raju what aspects of Sanju's life would be covered and he says, “It's too early to say. I am still collecting material, meeting his friends, family members, and researching on it. We are still scripting it. However, we would definitely touch many phases of his life. While we would leave few aspects and phases also, depending on the script.”

Sanjay was mighty excited to have a biopic on him when Raju informed about him. “When I told him, he got very excited and he was more than willing to have it,” 

Ranbir Kapoor has been roped in to play Sanjay Dutt on-screen.
