Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role is the highest grossing film of the year till date. Not just at the box office, Sanju received a thumbs up from the critics too. However, Mahesh Bhatt, who is quite close to Sanjay Dutt in real life, has something else to say about the biopic. Recently, in an interview with Telegraph, when the filmmaker was asked if he has seen Sanju, he replied in the affirmative and added that he loved Ranbir in it. However, he also went on to say people who are close to Sanjay Dutt cannot connect with the portrayal of the actor’s character in the film.
The veteran filmmaker said, “I loved Ranbir (Kapoor) but that’s not the Sanjay Dutt that I know. Ranbir brought his own emotional chord to it but I don’t think Rajkumar (Hirani) was claiming to the world that he’s making an exact replica. People who are very close to Sanjay cannot connect with that portrayal in the movie. But India seems to have loved it… almost Rs 600 crore is not an ordinary figure.”

We wonder what Ranbir Kapoor has to say about this statement of Mahesh Bhatt given that he’s dating Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter.
