The first glimpse of Anushka Sharma’s character in Rajkumar Hirnai’s Sanjay Dutt biopic is out. The actress revealed the look on her Instagram page and captioned it, “Makeup drill !! Last 2 days of shoot left for Dutt Biopic in NewYork then back to Mumbai for #JabHarryMetSejal.”
The picture shows Sharma wearing a bright red outfit. It’s a still clicked just before she is giving her shot. A make-up man is seen doing her eyebrows.
Although the film is a biopic, Sharma is playing a fictional character. In fact, hers is the only non-real character in the film and it’s a cameo. There were initial reports about she either playing a journalist or Dutt’s girlfriend.
But earlier this year, Sharma quashed all such reports as rumours. “I am not playing his girlfriend, or a journalist. My character is the only fictional character in the film. It is not based on any living person that much I can tell,” she said to a publication and added, “I am doing a cameo in the film but you all should be very excited for it. It will be a very good film.”
Along with Sharma, Manisha Koirala too is playing a cameo in the film. She essays the role of Dutt’s mother and late actress Nargis. Ranbir Kapoor will step into the shoes of Dutt.
The film will be released on 30 March 2018.
