If you’ve been living under the rock you probably wouldn’t know that Ranbir Kapoor will be stepping into Sanjay Dutt’s shoes for Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju. The film which showcases Sanjay’s story on the celluloid is all to release 29th of June and the actor is currently busy promoting the film. Ranbir recently was interviewed by DNA in which the actor spilled a lot of secrets about his relation with Sanjay Dutt.
While Ranbir plays Sanjay on-screen, in real life the actor was Sanjay’s fanboy. While growing up Ranbir revealed to the daily that he was gifted a bike by Sanjay who treated him like his younger brother.
He’s very close to the family. He treats me like a younger brother and spoils me with many gifts as well as a lot of love. He gave me a Harley Davidson motorcycle for my birthday. He used to pick me up for a drive in his Ferrari late in the night.
When Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor came to know about the gift, he wasn’t quite happy.
Ranbir further added,
I remember I had to hide it from Papa for a long time as he doesn’t like bikes. When he found out that Sanjay sir had gifted me one, he called him and fired him. He told him, ‘Stop spoiling my son, ‘isko tere jaisa mat bana.’ But now, he’s aware that I have the bike. It is one of my most prized possessions.
Expect the unexpected from Rishi Kapoor.
We can’t wait to see Ranbir as Sanju on-screen, already!
