Ranbir Kapoor’s transformation into Sanjay Dutt wasn’t an easy task. While we all are busy blowing whistles for Ranbir Kapoor’s apt portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in Sanju, little do we know what really went behind it. A year-long effort to get his looks right and the transformation of a lean looking Ranbir into someone as muscular as Dutt, it was easier said than done.
Rajkumar Hirani felt it was essential for his admirers and Ranbir’s fans to witness their journey from nothing to everything. The number of looks he rejected to the time when they finally got it right, the entire process was extremely tedious, time-consuming but not demotivating. His entire team was adamant to get it right and they continued striving hard till the expected results were finally achieved.
The video that starts with Hirani narrating his curiosity to figure out who can be Sanjay Dutt slowly explores the vital chapters of the making of Sanju. The way Ranbir had to work hard on his body to the time when he had to use prosthetics, the team’s journey can be described in only one word – commendable.
It’s always easy to bash a movie and hate an actor’s performance without realising the pain and efforts that were taken for it. The making of Sanju video just does that. It makes you aware of how difficult filmmaking really is and what efforts are really taken to achieve even the slightest detail of it.
The makers had to show many different lives of a single character spread across many years. It was a challenge Hirani took and we are so glad he succeeded at it.
