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.
Acclaimed filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who is busy with the post-production of his upcoming film “Sanju”, featuring actor Ranbir Kapoor, has confirmed that the film’s teaser will be released on Tuesday (April 24) morning.
Ranbir’s look from the sets was leaked last year in the month of May and the actor appeared to have nailed it.
RajKumar Hirani said: “It is not a correct news that it is going to be released during the Indian Premier League (IPL) match. As far as I understand, we are launching the teaser before that.
“It will be in the morning of April 24. In the evening, it will be shown during the IPL match.”
Rajkumar Hirani took this happy new to his Twitter handle. His tweet read as “A film very dear to me. Unveiling the teaser and title of #DuttBiopic on 24th April. Hope you like it”

Hirani said this while interacting with the media on Friday, along with Subhash Ghai at the 5th Veda Session organised by Whistling Woods International Film Institute.
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.
When asked whether “Sanju” would help to re-establish Ranbir again, the “3 Idiots” and “PK” director said: “He was always a Superstar. He never went away.
“He is fantastic actor and I really enjoyed working with him and in future, I would love to work with him again on a film.”
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.
The film is slated to release on 29 June 2018.
