From Sanjay Dutt’s drug addiction to his ‘350 girlfriends’, his time in jail to his father’s unshakable belief in him, Ranbir Kapoor brilliantly paints the life of Sanjay Dutt in all of its vivid colours in the newly released trailer for Fox Star Hindi’s upcoming film SANJU.
Featuring a star-studded cast, we also get to see glimpses of Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh and Boman Irani in the trailer.
Following the rapturous reception of the SANJU Teaser released at the end of April, PK, 3 Idiots director Rajkumar Hirani released the highly anticipated full trailer on his Twitter account with a simple tweet:
The film’s trailer took the internet by storm upon its release, with SANJU becoming the highest trending topic worldwide on Twitter shortly after release, in addition to trending on Facebook.
SANJU also quickly became the most searched keyword on Google, with over 200,000 searches for the film taking place following the release of the trailer, and the topic becoming one of the trending stories on Google News.
In just 24 hours the trailer generated 20.4 Million views across YouTube and Facebook, becoming a talking point across all digital platforms within just few hour of its launch.
Figures in the media and celebrities alike applauded the amazing trailer, with stars such as Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor and Karan Johar all praising the film and star Ranbir Kapoor.
Few lives in our times are as dramatic and enigmatic as the saga of Sanjay Dutt. Coming from a family of cinema legends, he himself became a film star, experiencing dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of die-hard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not be a terrorist.
SANJU is a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of one man’s battle against his own wild self and the formidable external forces trying to crush him. It depicts the journey of a man through everything that life can throw at him.
Some true stories leave you thinking “did this really happen?” This is one such unbelievable story that happens to be true.
SANJU is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and is produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studio. The film releases on 29th June 2018
