- The Sanju poster featuring Manisha Koirala released on Wednesday
- "Possibly the best Sanju poster till now," read a tweet
- "Manisha, you really looking like Nargis," read another tweet
There were many who cheered for director Rajkumar Hirani as well: "Rajkumar Hirani, you're a genius."
Here's how much impressed Twitter is with Manisha Koirala as Nargis. In the poster, Manisha's persona as Nargis will particularly remind you of Nargis from Raj Kapoor's 1955 film Shree 420. Nargis married Sunil Dutt - her Mother India co-star - in 1958 and Sanjay Dutt was born in 1959.

Manisha Koirala's amazing look, as the late Nargis, is so far the best thing about 'SANJU'.. Arguably, the best female actor of 1990s. Best wishes, @mkoirala— Navneet Mundhra (@navneet_mundhra) June 6, 2018

Very nice make-up. I was really upset abt Manisha playing Nargis.

And nobody can have any doubt about Manisha's acting talent.

When Manisha was offered the part last year, she was initially apprehensive about starring as Sanjay Dutt's mother in the biopic as she has already featured opposite him in several films from the Nineties. Yalgaar, Sanam and Kartoos are some of the movies in which Manisha was cast opposite Sanjay Dutt. This is what Manisha had tweeted on Wednesday:
The ensemble cast of Sanju also includes actors like Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh and Boman Irani. Sanju is all set to hit screens on June 29.
