Nothing worth having comes easy, just like how transforming Ranbir Kapoor into Sanjay Dutt was a painstaking journey. The audience is loving Ranbir Kapoor in the shoes of Sanjay Dutt, but it wasn’t a cakewalk for the actor, the director or the entire team. Ranbir Kapoor was always known as the ‘chocolaty boy’ and transforming him into Sanjay Dutt was never going to be easy, considering the difference in their body type, mannerisms and voice.
The makers of the movie have shared a BTS video, showing what all went into Ranbir Kapoor’s transformation into Sanjay Dutt. It took hours of long work in the gym and the makeup room to get the perfect look. “The biggest challenge was who will play Sanjay Dutt? Because somebody has to behave like him, look like him, feel like him,” Rajkumar Hirani says in the video.
