New Delhi:

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who is busy shooting the much-talked biopic on Sanjay Dutt, has revealed that the 'Khalnayak' actor broke down during the script narration of the movie.

Hirani has done extensive research about Dutt's life and has made every single effort to give this biopic his best.

While the movie is quite special for the 'Munna Bhai' actor, he got emotional after hearing the script.

Hirani reportedly stated that he was overwhelmed with the fact that how his entire life was explained so beautifully.

“After Sanjay Dutt told me his story we did a lot of research about him. We even spoke to the police officers and his family members to know other side of the story. When the script got completed, we went to Sanju and narrated it to him. Trust me, I have worked with Sanjay Dutt thrice and never has he cried during a film narration. But after listening to this script, he broke down and told me ‘Dhai ghante main tumne meri saari zindagi bata di’,” Rajkumar Hirani reportedly told a leading daily.

On the other hand, writer Abhijat Joshi feels proud of the script and says that the movie will be remembered for around 100 years.

“Dutt biopic is one of our greatest works till date.  Each and every incident in Sanjay Dutt’s life deserves a different film. We have rolled everything into this one film and this is the greatest challenge of our lives rather this would be the greatest direction of Rajkumar Hirani’s life. But let me say this, despite our efforts, it makes no difference because after the film everybody is just going to talk about Ranbir’s performance. He is performing in a way that won’t be forgotten for 100 years,” Abhijat was quoted as saying.

Sanjay Dutt's biopic will feature Ranbir Kapoor in the lead, who is working hard for the movie.

Besides, Paresh Rawal will be seen playing the role of Sunil Dutt, along with Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles.
