The Bollywood actor Salman Khan believes Sanjay Dutt should have played himself in his biopic movie ‘Sanju.’ He said, if not in the entire movie, at least the latter part of Sanjay Dutt’s life should have been played by him and not by Ranbir Kapoor.
Salman said, “Whenever Sanju wants to make a comeback, he will. It is all left to Sanjay Dutt, the day he thinks ‘I want to come back, he will be back.’ Even for the movie Sanju, I thought why did somebody else play his part. No one can do justice to that. The last bit of the film, only Sanju should have played it. The last portion of the last eight to ten years, Sanju should have done it.”
Even though Salman Khan refrained from commenting on Ranbir Kapoor’s performance in the movie, he made it clear that nobody can be Sanjay Dutt.
Salman Khan shares a close bond with Sanjay Dutt and has featured with him in movies like ‘Chal Mere Bhai’.
Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Dutt’s co-actor from ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ series backed Salman Khan’s statement “No one can do justice to Sanjay Dutt.”
“You can’t be the original. That is obviously the fact. There is nobody, I mean the way Sanju walks, talks. No, obviously because Sanju is Sanju. You can do anything but you can’t become Sanju. You can’t be the original. So that is obviously the fact. Whoever will try to do it, they can imitate him, they can’t be Sanju. So it’s always there.”
