Renowned director Rajkumar Hirani has taken it upon himself to bring the eventful life of Bollywood's once notorious playboy and most controversial celebrity Sanjay Dutt to the silver screen. With Ranbir Kapoor stepping into the shoes of legendary actor, cinephile is exhilarated to witness the magic unfold in theatres.

While the release of Sanjay Dutt's biopic titled 'Sanju' is still months away, makers keep treating the excited fans with occasional sneak peeks into the awe-inspiring transformation of Ranbir Kapoor as he went through various phases of Tinsel Town's Khalnayak's life, resembling the latter to perfection.

After sharing Ranbir's look resembling Sanjay Dutt from 2016 and 1990s, the makers have relieved the actor's look from his most-loved phase of life. Clad in white vest topped with an orange shirt and a pair of blue jeans with golden locks adorning his head, Kapoor is looking every bit of the popular Munnabhai.

Interestingly, Sanju director Rajkumar Hirani had directed Sanjay Dutt's most popular franchise as well and reliving the character with Ranbir while filming the Sanjay's biopic was nostalgic for him. Captioning the new poster, Hirani mentioned, "It was a lot of nostalgia reliving a bit of Munnabhai in #Sanju."

Coming from a filmy background with parents like Guru Dutt and Nargis, Sanjay has hardly faced a struggle for finding work but his struggle-free life has only landed him in trouble many times. The 58-year-old actor has undoubtedly been controversy's favourite child with his multiple love affairs, playboy image, acting career or tryst with illegal arms.

The film also stars Paresh Rawal as Sanjay's father Sunil Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Sanjay's mother Nargis, Anushka Sharma as a journalist, Vicky Kaushal as Dutt's friend while Sonam Kapoor will play the role of the actor's ex-girlfriend Tina Munim (now Ambani). Sanju will hit the theatres on June 29, 2018.
