The first teaser of director Rajkumar Hirani's long-in-the-making biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt arrives on 24 April. Starring Ranbir Kapoor as Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Nargis and Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt, the film is keenly awaited by audiences. Filmmaker Subhash Ghai is one of the lucky few who has seen the teaser already and he thinks the film is going to be amazing.
The editor-turned-filmmaker, Hirani, stopped by Ghai's film institute, Whistling Woods International for a 5th Veda session with students on 20 April. Hirani showed Ghai the teaser and it prompted Ghai to say that he can't stop praising the teaser of the film, Sanju.

Ghai told IANS news agency that Kapoor was good in the biopic and that he was eager to see the whole film soon.
“I have watched the teaser...and I think it’s going to be an amazing film...because of the way Ranbir Kapoor has acted in it as Sanjay Dutt.

He is a master craftsman, director and he knows his job very well. So I am really eager to see the film as soon as possible."
