Now, months later, Ranbir has aced it. These pictures from the sets of the Sanjay Dutt Biopic are proof that Ranbir’s transformation as Sanjay is complete.
For the movie, Ranbir Kapoor has really beefed up for his role and is looking more and more like Sanjay Dutt.
As per reports, Sanjay has given around 200 hours of recordings to the young actor. Ranbir took his lessons seriously and also spent a lot of time with the star so that he could understand Sanjay on a personal level.
Ranbir will portray three phases of Sanjay Dutt’s life, the actor with a beefy body, his lean look from the 90’s and the third avatar will showcase his phase in drug rehab.
Fitness trainer of Ranbir, Kunal Gir said: “Ranbir has gained more than 13 kgs now, wwhich is all muscle and no fat. His waist has gone down by an inch and he has been losing fat while building up. Ranbir has an hour-and-a-half of intense workout sessions. It’s a big challenge bulking up Ranbir like Sanjay, but the former is committed. He wakes up at 3 am, has a protein shake and goes back to sleep”.
Talking about other characters in this Sanjay Dutt biopic, Paresh Rawal has been roped in to play Sunil Dutt’s role. And looking at a recent picture he has aced his look too.
