After the super-hit successes of three films, namely Munnabhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munnabhai and PK, Sanjay Dutt is all set to collaborate with Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra for the fourth and most special association, which is his very own biopic.
The bond between Dutt and filmmakers Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra dates back to the trio’s first film together Munnabhai MBBS in 2003. 15 years after the first film, the trio is all set to come together for the biggest association of the three, which is the no-holds-barred film that will be based on Baba’s very own life.
Talking about the special association, Sanjay Dutt shared, “Vinod and Raju are like family to me. They have been an important part of my life. While we have worked together multiple times in the past, my involvement in our recent association has been very different”.
It was the immense love that the three share that made the biopic possible. Rajkumar Hirani spent hours at length immersed in over 300 hours of footage from Sanjay Dutt’s life for the biopic, which in itself is a testimony of their bond.
About the biopic, Sanjay Dutt shared, “Usually, they narrate the story to me. This time it was me who kept narrating my life stories to them.”
Sanjay Dutt, Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra weaved magic on-screen each time the three collaborated. The trio could be considered a hit formula, as they have never gone wrong.
It has to be noted that while PK starred Aamir Khan in the lead, Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra made sure to make Sanjay Dutt a part of their venture. This goes to show that they do indeed think about each other almost all the time.
