Ranbir Kapoor has worked really hard to get into the skin of his character in the Sanjay Dutt biopic and his latest pictures are a proof of his dedication. The actor was initially criticised by many from the film fraternity as they thought that Ranbir is not the right choice to play Dutt’s character on-screen.

The actor never gave any statements about the same and let his work do the talking. The biopic went on floors on January 14 this year and Ranbir has also started shooting for the film. Recently, a new picture of the actor from the sets went viral on the internet and we just can’t take our eyes off him.

Ranbir was looking exactly like young Sanjay Dutt as he donned a loose shirt, a waistcoat, and trouser to match Dutt’s looks from the 90s.

RK has not only gained weight for the film but has also grown his hair to look like Sanjay Dutt. He also watched over 250 hours of footage to learn every minute details of Dutt’s mannerism, his walking style, the way he speaks and much more.

Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film is not about guns and underworld but talks about various other unsaid and unheard portions of Sanjay’s life. The biopic majorly focusses on the father-son relationship in which Paresh Rawal will be seen playing the role of Sunil Dutt.
