Sanju: Teaser shows Ranbir Kapoor spitting image of Dutt

Ranbir had already surprised the audience with the striking resemblance to Dutt when accidental pictures from film sets hit the internet earlier and with the poster, it has surpassed all the expectations. Kapoor takes watchers everywhere from chartered airplanes and a five star hotel in NY that offers a view of the entire city, to jail cells without a single window in a matter of seconds, all the while changing avatars like a chameleon to match Sanjay Dutt's many transformations through life.

The talented actor who was shooting in Kyrgyzstan had a special message at the launch event praising both Ranbir and Rajkumar Hirani for the way the film is looking.

"I showed him a scene in the film, where RK was playing #MunnaBhai". Apparently, Nargisji used to call him "Sanju" with a lot of affection.

"Apna life full saap-seedi ka board hai" (My life is like snakes and ladders board game), Ranbir is heard saying as he steps out of prison. Hirani has previously worked with Dutt on the Munna Bhai series that resurrected the career of the '80s superstar and by the looks of it has made a pretty good choice by casting Kapoor for the project.

The trailer has shown a varied life times of Sanjay Dutt.

In the starting of the teaser Ranbir go out from the Jail and just look like Sanjay Dutt and as a energetic person. It starts out with Dutt at 22 paring horizontal stripes with white trousers and ends at him exiting from jail, one of the premier highlights of his eventful life. I try to do this for every film. With the biopic, you will have to stay true to what has happened in the life. One thing I learnt from him is how not to take yourself seriously.

Sanju features Dia Mirza as Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanyata, Karishma Tanna as Madhuri Dixit, Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and Manisha Koirala as Nargis.

I would have honestly preferred if they had taken a new actor who not only closely resembled Dutt physically but could also give the actor a fresh spin.
