‘Sanju’ is not all ‘Sanjay Dutt, Ram Gopal Varma Has More To Add
Ali Peter John
There must have been no celebrity who has hogged reams and reams of paper and now so much of footage on social media like Sanjay Dutt. The way people have accepted Rajkumar Hirani’s “Sanju” in such a big way is more than proof that Sanjay Dutt and his unusual story can still grab the eye balls and the hearts and mind of people. “Sanju” has already crossed the 400cr mark which is no ordinary feat and it is difficult to say who deserves the credit , Sanjay himself, Rajkumar Hirani or Ranbir Kapoor who has put his life into bringing the story of Sanjay Dutt alive, so what if the film left out some of the most interesting and controversial incidents in his life
In the meanwhile , there has been a book based on the like of Sanjay called “ Sanjay Dutt: The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood’s Bad Boy” written by Yasser Usman which was released before the release of “Sanju” and which was denied by Sanjay who said the book was not authorized by him, the copies of the book were withdrawn from all important shops , but they are still being sold and lapped up by readers in the interiors and places where no one has heard about the book not being acknowledged by Sanjay
And now , Ram Gopal Varma is making his own version of Sanjay’s story and RGV says that his film will start from where Sanjay is held as a terrorist and what followed after that. Readers may remember that RGV had made his own version of “Sholay” called “RGV ke Sholay” with Amitabh Bachchan playing Gabbar Singh. The film was literally “burnt” by the audience.
But I think and firmly believe that the ultimate truth about Sanjay Dutt will be out when Sanjay’s autobiography is published , a book which is said to be a collection of the diary he maintained in different jails. Will Sanjay genuinely tell his story from his heart? It is a very tough challenge , but then hasn’t Sanjay faced greater challenges during the fifty – eight years of his turmoil- packed life ?
