The array of posters released by the makers of Sanju might feel like an overdose, but they are slowly revealing the characters and people who played a key part in Sanjay Dutt's life. The latest one features 'his best friend', played by actor Vicky Kaushal, alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
The poster captures the two characters enjoying the nightlife in what looks like the United States of America, during Dutt's younger years. Kapoor sports the hairstyle and look which was revealed to be from the time Dutt was away from home.
Kaushal, meanwhile, is no less flamboyantly dressed, with a fur lined jacked to contrast the dark blue disco scenario. Like all best friends, the two seem to be sharing the look which is up to no good.
Meet Vicky Kaushal. Such a refined actor and pure joy to work with him. He plays Sanju’s best buddy. #SanjuTrailer out in 2 days on 30th May! #RanbirKapoor @vickykaushal09 #RajkumarHiraniFilms @foxstarhindi @VVCFilms pic.twitter.com/979wx8eXks— Rajkumar Hirani (@RajkumarHirani) May 28, 2018
Kaushal's character is an amalgamation of several people who were close to Dutt, including his best friend turned former brother-in-law, actor Kumar Gaurav.
In an interview to Mid-Day, a tabloid, in February 2017, Kaushal had said, "I can't say much, but the character is primarily based on his close friend who lives in the US. That friend has been with him [Dutt] through thick and thin. I have major prep lined up and it requires a lot of travelling."
The poster is in line with the slow revelation of the many characters in Dutt's biopic, directed by Rajkumar Hirani. This is the third such poster to have been released following the ones with Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal (as Sunil Dutt).
The trailer of the film is set to be released on 30 May, while the film will hit the screens on 29 June.
