Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanjay Dutt biopic is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Today, the makers of the Dutt biopic will unveil the teaser and fans have been waiting with baited breath to watch the first teaser of Sanjay Dutt biopic. Ranbir’s film has been creating immense buzz ever since its announcement. As many have been very inquisitive about the title of the film, rumours over the title of the film had been floating for a long time. From Dutt, Sanju Baba to Dutt’s The Way to Sanju, there was a lot of confusion on what will be the title of the movie. However, the makers have finally zeroed down one. The director confirms that Sanjay Dutt biopic will be titled as SANJU.
Yes, you read that right. The filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has allegedly decided to go with ‘Sanju’, as it is what his friends call him in the industry. Talking about it, in a statement to Pinkvilla, Hirani said, “Actually, we thought of many titles. One of them was Aisa Hi Hoon. Anything you attach with a name in a biopic is like an adjective. Even if you say Aisa Hi Hoon or Sarphira, either you are glorifying him or attacking him. One thing all of us were clear about was that we wanted a neutral title. Dutt seemed a little harsh. Then I heard a gem from him. Apparently, Nargisji used to call him ‘Sanju’ with a lot of affection. We thought this is the most non-committal and neutral title, with no pre-conceived notions.”
Hirani also revealed that he is nervous about the teaser release today. He added, “I have a terrible reputation for being nervous. If you ask Abhijat and Boman Irani, I’m a nervous wreck before every film. I recall after seven days of 3 Idiots’ release, I asked Boman if people were liking the film or was it just Aamir’s presence. I’m a bit of a mess like that because as I pointed out earlier on, I write, shoot and edit a film for months. So being objective about the end product is so hard. Every moment, every joke stops affecting me after a point in time. However, I am fortunate to have people like Abhijat, Boman and a couple of others. So, I see it from their point of view. Their reactions are fantastic to the teaser of Sanju, so I guess it’s good.” ALSO READ: Teaser Of Ranbir Kapoor Starrer Sanjay Dutt Biopic To Be Unveiled Tomorrow
