Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Sanju’, based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt, is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The film has an ensemble cast playing different characters of Dutt’s real life. Vicky Kaushal, who plays a friend to Ranbir (Sanjay Dutt) in the film, is apparently inspired by the actor’s real life best friend.
Paresh Ghelani, whose character Vicky Kaushal is seen playing in the film, is a very dear friend of Sanjay Dutt who is based out in America. The makers have made it a point to showcase the similar friendship between Paresh Ghelani and Sanjay Dutt which is reminisced by Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal.
While talking about Vicky Kaushal’s character, Rajkumar Hirani shared, “Sanjay Dutt had many friends in his life. One such friend of Sanjay lives in America, Vicky’s character traits are based on this friend of Sanju whose name is Paresh”.
The real-life essence of the character of Paresh Ghelani has been retained in the film which sees the character of Paresh standing by the actors’ side through his thick and thin in life.
The recently released trailer of Sanju has taken the excitement of the audience to an all-time high owing to the gripping storyline and power-packed performances by the ensemble cast.
Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also star an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza amongst others.
Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios. ‘Sanju’ is all set to be released on June 29, 2018.
