The much-awaited biopic on Sanjay Dutt — the actor surrounded by controversies — is all set to spread its magic on the silver screen in Christmas 2017.

Versatile actor Ranbir Kapoor will step into Sanju Baba’s shoes for the ambitious project.

The shooting for the Rajkumar Hirani directorial movie is scheduled for this September.

This is the first time Ranbir will be working with Hirani as the lead actor. The actor, earlier played a cameo in the Aamir Khan starrer PK.

While Hirani has begun work on the project as he shot the footage of Sanjay walking out of jail on February 25. It&’s likely that the footage will make it to the movie.

Now that Sanjay is a "free man", he might lend a hand in the making of the film.
