It's not a secret anymore that Ranbir Kapoor will portray Sanjay Dutt in a biopic based on the latter's life. And though Ranbir is excited to step into Sanjay's shoes, the dissimilarity in their appearance is obvious. 

Hence, the young actor has decided to beef up a little for a more real portrayal of the character."Ranbir is a great actor. And I am sure he will be able to do full justice to the role. For the film, he wants to put on weight, so that he can take up the journey (of the character) effectively," says Rajkumar Hirani, who will be directing the film. "We have already told Ranbir what are we doing, and how we are going to approach the story. And he is excited," he adds. 

But how important is it to look like the person you are essaying on screen? Not much, says  Hirani, who feels that once the audience are engrossed in a film, they don't notice physicality. However, Hirani is clear that he can't have "someone who looks like Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), but is a bad actor. I would rather have it the other way round."  
Elaborating on the same, the film-maker says, "It wasn't necessary that we have to find an actor who resembles Sanju. Still, you look at Sanju's picture from Rocky (1981) days and Ranbir's. They both have a similar stardom' on their face. Also, if you look at Ben Kingsley (who played Mahatma Gandhi in Richard Attenborough's Gandhi; 1982), he has no real resemblance with Gandhiji. Unlike Gandhiji, Kingsley is tall." 

The work on the film's script has been on for the last six-seven months, and Hirani tells us that the story's has started to take shape now.  "It's a challenge " how do you do it, what do you say in it? People shouldn't get hurt, but still, you should tell the story."

How much weight and in what time frame?  Is he just bulking up more?  He's already got a good frame so it's not like he's super scrawny now.  Or is he just gaining fat and trying to look like the Sunjay Dutt of the last decade or so?   If it's the latter in how much time and how will that affect his other movie roles that are pending?  

He should he very careful.  He's a Kapoor so genetics and metabolism are not on his side here.

Probably after Ayan's film. He'd have completed Tamasha and Kjo movie by then. Basu also said he need to put on weight for Kishore Kumar film so he'll probably do both films back to back.

Anurag said he would need around 6 months dates for kk biopic and not juggle with another film. There is never news or confirmation on kk film. Does ranbir plan to make it or not? I hope anurag doesn't get fed up and cast someone else? Can he? I thought ranbir had bought the rights for kk film .. Isn't it?
