Ranbir Kapoor’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt is one of the most awaited films of 2018. Since last week, rumours have been rife that the teaser of the biopic would be launched on 24 April. Ranbir’s look from the sets was leaked last year in the month of May and the actor appeared to have nailed it.
The makers of the film have planned to launch the teaser at a unique location. A source informed that the teaser will be launched during the IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir Kapoor, and director Rajkummar Hirani will be present at the launch of the teaser at the Wankhede stadium.
The producers of the film have also planned a 30-minute talk show which will have Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt in a conversation.
A source Mid Day was informed that the “chat will be moderated by Hirani”.
“While Ranbir will talk about slipping into the character and the challenges they faced while shooting, Sanjay will speak about how he was surprised to see Ranbir’s transformation,” the source added.
Hirani will also reportedly shed light on how difficult it was to pen an engrossing script, especially since Sanjay’s life has been widely covered by the press. The officials at Fox Star have already started a dialogue with the channel for this.
After the digital release, there will be sneak peek to Avengers: Infinity War which will hit the theatres on 27 April.
Starring an ensemble cast of Ranbir Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza and Sonam Kapoor amongst others, the film is undoubtedly one of the most awaited flicks of the year.
Presented by Fox Star, the untitled Dutt biopic is produced and directed by Rajkumar Hirani. Vidhu Vinod Chopra is also a producer. The film is slated to release on 29 June 2018.
