Ram Gopal Varma announces honest biopic on Sanjay Dutt
New Delhi : Director Ram Gopal Varma on Friday announced an honest biopic on Sanjay Dutt, the movie is likely to be titled Sanju: The Real Story. The decision to make movie comes after RGV watched Hirani’s version of the biopic and felt certain aspects of the life were kept untouched.
Confirming news to the Mumbai Mirror, Varma said, "Yes, I am making the film." He did not reveal any other information about the film.
The RGV’s version will focus on Sanjay Dutt several brushes with the law. According to a source, "That Dutt was doing drugs, was traumatised by his mother’s battle with cancer (she died just three days before the release of his first film Rocky), had multiple flings, many of them one-night stands, is all well documented."
The film will also try to answer some questions like how Sanjay Dutt got possession of an AK-56 assault rifle in the first place.
RGV and Dutt have worked together on two occasions - exactly as many films as Dutt and Hirani had done together. In 1997 Dutt starred in Daud and in 2012, the cop-thriller Department.
