Ranbir Kapoor bulking up to play Sanjay Dutt

Besides the physical changes, Ranbir was also spotted wearing a wig resembling Dutt's hairstyle from the '90s while shooting for the Rajkumar Hirani directorial.

Now, according to reports, Ranbir Kapoor will be sporting six, totally different looks in Dutt that will highlight different phases in Sanjay Dutt's life.

Yes, former Bigg Boss contestant Karishma has joined the cast of the Sanjay Dutt biopic being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani.

"It's incredible to be working with a director like Rajkumar Hirani", Ranbir added.

"Ranbir started with the long hair and beefed up look, which will continue for a while". In his biopic movie, Ranbir Kapoor is going to follow his personal growth from his teens to the present day and will sport not one or two, but six looks!

When asked if playing a real life character is easy or hard, she said, "I think for an actor, the work is only as hard as a written material". Moreover, they are also excited to see Dia Mirza essay the role of Dutt's wife - Maanayata - in the film. "It's just a cameo but I would take my role as important as it is a biopic on Sanjay Dutt, so whatever is important in his life is being shown in the film". Paresh Rawal will be playing Sanjay Dutt's father, late actor Sunil Dutt.
