Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju is touching new heights with each passing day. For the movie, Ranbir stepped into the shoes of Sanjay Dutt and the audience is loving it. Even after a week of its release, theatres are still packed and the movie is racing towards 250 crores.
Well, we already know that the entire cast charged a hefty amount for the film. But did you know how much the man on whom the biopic is made was paid? Ever wondered how much the real Sanjay Dutt is getting out of it? Sharing the good and bad of your life, all the ups and downs for the world to see isn’t an easy thing to do. Apparently, Dutt didn’t give his story for free. If reports are to be believed, he charged somewhere around 9-10 crores and he has been also promised a part of the profits.
“Sanju didn’t come for free. Sanjay’s team negotiated hard. They finally settled for an outright nine to 10 crore, plus a portion of the box office profit. Only then, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani were given access to the actor’s life,” a source informed a daily.
When asked about why he made a film on Sanjay Dutt’s life, Rajkumar Hirani told a media portal, “We are obsessed with great stories… It was purely the greed for great content which drove us to that film.”
Well, that’s quite a deal. What do you think?
