The Bollywood fans are eagerly waiting for the release of Ranbir Kapoor starrer most awaited project Sanju as it is a biopic on Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt.

Alia and Ranbir will be seen together on screen for the first time in their upcoming film Brahmastra and the couple has now taken some time off from shooting to spend some quality time with Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor.

Air Force certifies Falcon Heavy, orders satellite launch for 2020
Known as Space Test Mission-2 (STP-2), Falcon Heavy will be tasked with carrying a stack of dozens of different smallsats to a variety of orbits.

However, it seems like the flick's producer, Vidhu Vinod Chopra wasn't on board initially with Kapoor being cast as Sanjay Dutt for the latter's biopic. He said that he thought that Ranveer had all the traits which were best suited to play the role of Sanjay Dutt. But Raju was adamant that Ranbir would be ideal.

Now, in an exclusive interview with India Today, a visibly perturbed Ranbir said that he does not want his relationship to turn into a media circus. When he told me about Ranbir, I wasn't happy at all. This destroys the effect of a character. While, Ranbir's body language and mannerisms do leave us impressed, we wonder why the makers made a decision to go with the dialogues in the original voice of Sanjay Dutt. I knew that I will be compared to Sanjay Dutt and that is why I have tried my best to do justice to his role. The film is slated to hit theatres on June 29. The film is supported by actors like Paresh Rawal (Sunil Dutt), Manisha Koirala (Nargis), Sonam Kapoor (one of Sanjay Dutt's girlfriends), Dia Mirza (wife Maanyata), Anushka Sharma (a biographer) and Vicky Kaushal (as childhood friend).
