Speaking of his biopic, Sanjay Dutt said, “I have not had an easy life. I have made way too many mistakes, and I want youngsters to really learn from it. So, if you ask me, it was definitely worth telling my story, because I want it to make a difference to the generation today.”

Earlier, Ranbir Kapoor spoke on his prep for the project. “Getting the look right is very superficial, it is easy as you have help from makeup and computer graphics. To show Sanjay Dutt as a human being, as a biopic only works when you show the human side of a person — and not the glories but the downfall as well was not easy.”
