The trailer of actor Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju was released today. In the trailer, Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt admits to being an alcoholic, womaniser andd drug addict. He even say he had 308 girlfriends. At the trailer launch, a journalist asked Kapoor if he enjoyed playing the romantic side of Dutt.
“I like romantic stories because I believe that a character does incredible things when he is in love,” replied Kapoor.
Later, Kapoor was asked if ever there was a biopic on him, would he then reveal the number of girlfriends in his life?
“I don't think my biography will have any such thing. I’m not as courageous as Sanjay Dutt to be so open about my life. Besides, I think my count will be less than 10,” said the actor.
Kapoor has dated actresses like Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. He is currently romantically linked with his Brahmastra (2019) co-actor Alia Bhatt.
On a serious note, Kapoor stated that it is important to learn from Dutt’s mistakes. “Subconsciously, you want to imbibe certain qualities of them [the character you play]. Sanju’s life has been such that we all can learn from his mistakes,” said Kapoor.
Kapoor's father, actor Rishi Kapoor, recently saw the trailer of the film and he could barely recognise his son. The senior Kapoor liked what he saw in the trailer. When asked what his father said to him after seeing the trailer, Kapoor replied, “The thing is that he is also an actor. I wasn’t aware when he saw the trailer as I was shooting. I don’t expect anything, and he usually doesn’t compliment for free. He felt I didn’t look like his son. It was an incredible experience, and very emotional for me for him to have liked it.”
Sanju will be released on 29 June.
