On its 3
rd anniversary, we stumbled upon an old video of the late actor Rishi Kapoor bursting with pride after watching the trailer of ‘Sanju’. Ranbir had completely transformed himself and looked exactly like Sanjay Dutt in the film.
In the video, we can see how Ranbir’s father got emotional after watching him as Sanju. Reacting to the video, Rishi had said, “The way Rajkumar Hirani has presented Ranbir is superb. The boy has really done well. I am so proud of him. I swear on Neetu (Kapoor) and Ranbir, I did not think it was Ranbir, I thought it was Sanjay Dutt.” With Neetu by his side, Rishi further jokingly said, “I shouldn’t praise him so much, he’s good but still needs to improve. I love you my boy.”
He further said, “Ranbir if you are listening, you don’t know how emotionally triggered I am when Raju and Vinod are showing me this trailer of yours. The first appearance of yours from the jail, I thought it was Sanjay Dutt.”
Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, 2020.
Apart from Ranbir, the film also starred Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza.
