Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has refuted reports that suggested his next directorial venture, a biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt will clash at the box office with Salman Khan's next on Eid 2018. The 54-year-old director said that his film would release as per schedule on March 30 next year, reported news agency PTI. In a statement, Mr Hirani said: "All these are baseless rumours. The film will release as per schedule in March 2018," reported PTI. The biographical drama film is being produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Ranbir Kapoor will be seen portraying the role of actor Sanjay Dutt in the film.

The Sanjay Dutt biopic is part of a three-film deal signed by Fox Star Studios with Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film will focus on Mr Dutt's formative years, his relationship with his father Sunil Dutt and his struggles coping up with the loss of his mother and his affairs.
