In an interview with DNA, Hirani disclose the reason behind choosing Ranbir kapoor for Dutt’s role. He said: ” The first reason for choosing him is that he’s a fantastic actor. And the second reason is that he is at the perfect age. I needed an actor who could be 21 (years old) because that is where the film begins. That was the age when Sanju was shooting for Rocky and his drug phase started. And then we have Sanju when he came out of prison (around 56 years). So, we needed someone who could fit that transformation”. Hirani is very close to Sanjay Dutt and revived Dutt’s career with hit Munna Bhai MBBS.
