Finished shooting with Manisha Koirala for 'Dutt': Rajkumar Hirani

The biopic will focus on Sanjay's formative years, his relation with his father Sunil Dutt, his struggles coping up with the loss of his mother and his many affairs.

From undergoing intense workout sessions to experimenting with hairstyles for different scenes, Ranbir Kapoor is surely going that extra mile for the Sanjay Dutt biopic.

When quizzed on his choice of actor for the protagonist's role, he promptly replied, saying Sanjay Dutt. However, the movie has got a release date and will hit silver screens on 30 March, 2018. The film will concentrate on the mother-son relationship since she happened to be a very integral part of his life.

Earlier, in an interview to news agency PTI, the 46-year-old actress said that she was "excited" about her role in the film.

Refuting the rumours, a spokesman for Fox Star Studios told Hindustan Times, "The report that has appeared today about the cost and nature of the deal for the untitled Sanjay Dutt biopic is inaccurate".

"Just finished shooting with Manisha Koirala as Nargisji". But the reports had been doing rounds of media for a while now that the film's release date has been delayed.

Produced by Rajkumar Hirani Films and Vinod Chopra Films in association with Fox Star Studios Sanjay Dutt's biopic is slated to release on 30th March 2018. "Wish you the best for #DearMaya Manisha".
