Did you know the role of Sunil Dutt in Sanju was first offered to Aamir Khan but he refused the role? At a media interaction recently, Aamir Khan publicized that Mr. Hirani had offered him the role of Sunil Dutt in the biopic but it was Sanjay Dutt's character, which Aamir was actually interested in.
Aamir recently revealed the reason for not coming on board Sanju and said that it was Sanjay Dutt's role in the film that had "won his heart" and he was grudging to take up any other role in the movie. "In this film, I can't do any other role apart from Sanjay Dutt's, which I can't do because Ranbir is doing," Aamir Khan said at the media interaction. "I can't come to a set thinking and be looking at Ranbir and be like, hmmm... these should be my lines," he added.
Talking about the particular role he was offered, Aamir added, "Dutt Saab's role is a fabulous role. There is so much about Sanju's relationship with his father, but Sanju's role is unbelievable. I told Raju that role had won my heart. "
Sanju, which releases next month, casts Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and Manisha Koirala as Nargis.
