Ranbir Kapoor gave a speech to everyone when his photos were leaked to social media for Sanjay Dutt in the biography film. Not only his fans and colleagues in the film brochure, Dutt was also surprised and shocked that Kapoor looks like him in the photo.
“Sanjay was taken aback when he saw the picture that was doing the rounds on the Internet. The resemblance is uncanny and Sanjay couldn’t stop staring at them,” says Dutt’s spokesperson.
It couldn't have been easy for Ranbir to slip into Dutt's shoes, given that the two hardly have anything in common in terms of physicality or mannerisms. Apart from inputs from the man himself, Ranbir is taking help from top stand-up comic and internet sensation Dr. Sanket Bhosale, who is known to effortlessly mimic several Bollywood stars including Dutt, Salman Khan, Farhan Akhtar and Sonu Nigam.
The signal revealed, "I first met Ranbir Kapoor four months ago, at first, he was surprised to know that I was a doctor. We sat for almost three hours at Suburban Hotel and discussed only Sanju Sir. Ranveer was happy and asked me how can I easily come in the role of Sanjay Dutt.
The 28-year-old adds that Ranbir asked a lot of questions about Dutt. "Sanju sir has a peculiar style of walking and talking, and Ranbir wanted to learn everything. He was impressed with the way I impersonate Sanju sir rolling his eyes while talking; he wanted to learn that too. I have heard that Ranbir still refers to my online videos."
