Rajkumar Hirani, who has been quite excited to direct Sanjay Dutt's biopic Sanju, is all praises for the lead actor of the movie Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir will essay Sanjay Dutt's role in Sanju and looks like the director is mighty impressed with RK's acting skills.
Notably, Sanju holds a great importance for Ranbir's career given that he has witnessed a series of flop movies like Bombay Velvet, Besharam and Roy.
Although, he was appreciated in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil but his last and much delay project Jagga Jasoos also tanked at the box office.
So while the Barfi actor is in a terrible need of a hit, Hirani feels that the Kapoor lad is a super actor and that he loved directing him.
In fact, the ace-director also expressed high hopes with Sanju saying the movie is going to be a blockbuster.
"He was always there, he never went away. He is a fantastic actor. I Ioved working with him. I would like to work with him again. Films work or they don't work. These things happen. Ranbir Kapoor is a super actor... As a friend Hirani has shown me the teaser and it is really very nice. I think it is going to be an amazing film and it is going to be a blockbuster. Because the way Ranbir Kapoor has acted as Sanjay Dutt and the way he (Hirani) has directed I was shocked, amazed and happy. I am sure 'Sanju' is going to be a big hit. He is a master craftsman and a great narrator he knows his job very well," Hirani was quoted as saying.
Hirani admitted he feels the pressure for his next directorial venture as it is seen as one of the most awaited Hindi films of the year. The PK director said Dutt has seen some scenes of the film and the 58-year-old actor is happy with the way the movie has shaped up.
"He has seen some scenes but not the entire film. But he has seen many scenes, the teaser of the film. We are working on it. When it is completely ready he would be the first person to see it. He is surprised and shocked that a film is made on his life. He has to absorb that," Hirani said.
There were reports the teaser of the yet-to-be-titled film on Dutt will be released on April 24 during a cricket match, but the Munna Bhai MBBS director said the teaser will be out on the same day in the morning.
Also starring Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala and Vicky Kaushal in key roles, Sanju is expected to release on June 29 this year.
