We are all waiting for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic which is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani and has Ranbir Kapoor playing the lead. The actor has been working hard to get into the skin of the character. From binge-watching 250 hours of Sanjay Dutt tapes to following a rigorous diet and exercise plan, Ranbir is leaving no stone unturned to master Sanju Baba’s personality.
And now the rest of the cast for the biopic has been revealed and it looks the perfect mix.
Karishma Tanna As Madhuri Dixit
Sanjay Dutt’s love affair with Madhuri was what love tales are written about. It is believed that the two actors were thinking marriage but Sanjay’s jail term ruined a perfect romance. It is being speculated that Karishma Tanna will play Madhuri but the producers are still hush about it.

After a long hiatus from the film industry, actor Manisha Koirala will be seen making her comeback as Nargis Dutt in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. Talking about the role, she said, “To play her is a great honour. She is a legendary figure, no matter how forward we go, or whatever, her name would always be remembered, she would always be tagged as a legendary actor. She is a historical figure of the Bollywood industry. People remember her for films.”
Sonam Kapoor As Tina Munim

Reel-life romance turning into real-life romance is not new in the film industry. Sanjay Dutta and Tina Munim’s chemistry in the film ‘Rocky’ turned into real-life romance which lived for a short period of time. Actress Sonam Kapoor is likely to play the part, although it is believed that her character will be a generic representation of the women Sanjay Dutt dated at that point of time in his career.
Anushka Sharma As Sanjay’s Lawyer Satish Maneshinde

Satish Maneshinde was a well-known lawyer who was Sanjay’s lawyer in the 1993 Bombay blast case, and Anushka Sharma has been roped in to play the role. The gender reversal makes it more interesting and we are curious to see this one.
Sanjay Dutt’s personal life has been as eventful as his filmy career. From romantic affairs to being convicted in the Bombay blast case for which Sanjay Dutt spent a considerable time in jail, his life has had much going on. It is very rare in Bollywood that biopics of actors who are still active in the industry are made, and it makes things even more interesting. The film will be released end of December 2017 and we can’t wait for this one.
