Paresh Rawal will be essaying Sanjay’s father, late actor Sunil Dutt in the film. Talking about his experience of working in the film, the veteran actor said, “Working on that film has been an amazing experience because of Rajkumar Hirani, Ranbir Kapoor and the writing of Abhijat Joshi. I feel Sunil Dutt saab was very human and he never had any vibes of stardom, so it has been gratifying experience playing him on screen.”
The biographical drama, written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The movie is part of a three-film deal signed by Fox Star Studios with Hirani and Chopra.
