Ranbir Kapoor's Love For Sanjay Dutt
Ranbir Kapoor: In my life I want Sanju sir to like me. I can't be the man that he is and I can never be the person that he is. But I want him to like me. I respect him a lot and look up to him. I hope he feels I have represented his life honestly and truly.
The Scene Between Sunil Dutt & Sanjay Dutt
Ranbir Kapoor: He was doing drugs in those days. He lost perspective of life after the premiere of Rocky. He went to his father and said, 'I'm gone. If you don't save me, I won't survive.' Sunil sir realised that he had gone so deep into drugs that he needs help. He took him to America, to a rehab. It was an important phase in Sanju sir's life. He would have died or survived, but he is a fighter, so he survived.
Sanjay Dutt: The Storyteller
Rajkumar Hirani: I have made two Munna Bhai films with him and he also did a role in PK. I thought I know Sanju. When he came out of jail from parole, I visited him. That's when I realised that I only know what the world knows. Sanju was telling us a lot of things; he was just venting out. Things like what happens in jail. I was fascinated with what I heard. Next day again I went to meet him. I called Abhijat Joshi and I told him I hadn't heard anything like this. We then visited him for 25 days, every day from 5 pm to 3 am. When we used to walk out late in the night, we used to just feel like dwarfs, as if we haven't lived our lives.
Learn From Sanjay Dutt's Mistakes
Ranbir Kapoor: We all can learn from Sanju's mistakes. That's why he has given this gracefully - given away all the stories. To tell these are the mistakes I have made. I can understand from his mistakes and learn from them.
Sanju had 308 girlfriends. What about Ranbir Kapoor?
Unlike Sanju sir, I won't allow my biopic to be made. He is a courageous man who has given his life out there to be made into a movie. Well, my girlfriend count is less than ten.
