A self-narrated teaser portrays various phases of Sanjay Dutt, as a drug addict, as a survivor, as a film star and a prisoner.
Calling Ranbir Kapoor’s acting brilliant and the film phenomenal, celebrities have definitely given the film an outstanding review. Now, it’s time to wait for the audience’s reaction.
Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Paresh Rawal, Boman Irani and Vicky Kaushal, the biopic was one of the most awaited releases for 2018.
