New Delhi:

Superstar Aamir Khan raised a lot of eyebrows after he turned down Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt's much talked about biopic.

According to the media reports filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani had approached Khan for the movie and wanted him to play the role of Sanjay's father Sunil Dutt in the movie.

However, much to everyone's surprise Aamir refused to be a part of the movie.

It was reported that the reason behind Aamir's denial was that the 'Dangal' actor was looking forward to play Sanjay Dutt's role in the biopic.

“I thought you were coming to narrate the role of Sanjay Dutt. I am not interested in playing the role of his father,” Aamir reportedly stated.

Besides, director Rajkumar Hirani had roped in young actor Ranbir Kapoor to portray the 'Khalnayak' actor on the silver screen and the young actor is putting in ever single effort to give the movie his best shot.

From putting in weight to building up muscles and even planning to stay in jail, RK is doing it all.

Apart from Ranbir, Dutt's biopic will also feature Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma and Manisha Koirala in key roles.

Sanjay Dutt's biopic has hit the floors and is being shot in Bhopal.
