I got to know Sanjay Dutt as a human being: Vicky Kaushal
The actor is working on Rajkumar Hirani's untitled biopic
Vicky Kaushal says the audience will get to know the real Sanjay Dutt, minus his star status, in filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani's untitled upcoming biopic about the actor. He says he got to know the truth behind Sanjay's life after working on the biopic, and was in awe of it.
Asked whether the biopic will bring forward a different side of Sanjay Dutt's life, Vicky says, "I don't know about different, but his life will be told in the true sense." He adds, "The film is going to be very entertaining. It will make you cry and laugh. It is a great story. It is difficult to believe that a person has lived this life."
The biopic, which will release on March 30 next year, is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. It features Ranbir Kapoor as the protagonist of the movie, and also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, and Manisha Koirala, among others.
The Masaan actor says, "I have grown up watching Sanjay Dutt's films. I've always looked up to him. But due to this story, I got to know Sanjay Dutt as a human being for the first time. I feel it will be new for the audience, too, to look at him as a human being, and not the star."
Meanwhile, apart from the biopic, Vicky is also excited for Meghna Gulzar's next directorial Raazi, also starring Alia Bhatt, which narrates the story of a Kashmiri girl married to a Pakistani Army officer.
