Quite a few posters of Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, a biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt, have been released so far. While these featured lead actor Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay in different phases of his life, the makers are now introducing other characters from the film too.

One poster, released yesterday (25 May), featured actress Sonam Kapoor. She is said to be playing one of Dutt’s love interests.

Today, a new poster was made public, featuring Kapoor and Paresh Rawal. While the former looks scared, the latter hugs him, assuring he is safe. Rawal will be seen essaying the role of Sanjay's father, the late actor Sunil Dutt.

The poster shares an emotional moment between the father and son, and speaks about the bond the two shared. It would not be wrong to assume that the image represents the time when Sanjay was struggling with drug abuse.

Like Kapoor's make-up as Sanjay, Rawal’s look as Sunil Dutt is as close to perfection as possible.

The role of Sanjay's mother, late actress Nargis Dutt, will be played by actress Manisha Koirala. Nargis passed away only a few days before Sanjay's debut film, Rocky, was to be released. She was suffering from pancreatic cancer. During a media interaction last year, Koirala revealed that she was signed for the role since she has suffered from cancer herself.

The much awaited film will be released on 29 June.
