While we all are busy blowing whistles for Ranbir kapoor‘s great portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in Sanju, we really don’t know how much he worked to get in that look. It took a year-long effort to get his looks right and the transformation of a lean looking Ranbir into someone as muscular as Dutt. Rajkumar Hirani’s films are famous for perfection and that’s what we witnessed in this masterpiece as well. The actor didn’t just transform physically but has worked a lot on his body language. Ranbir‘s exact words are “Test after test and we kept failing. It’s really hard because you have to sit on a chair for six hours hoping like how to make it work and it’s just a span of 30 seconds when you see it’s not working. Six hours of hard work gone down the drain.”
Prosthetics played an important role to achieve the desired looks. It’s not just workout and makeup that made Ranbir look exactly like Sanjay Dutt but it’s also his hard work and amazing acting abilities. The way Ranbir had to work hard on his body to the time when he had to use prosthetics, the team’s journey can be described in only one word – commendable. The transformation included long hours in the gym and the makeup room. With the help of international makeup artist Clover Wootton, Vikram Gaikwad, hair stylist Aalim Hakim and physical trainer Kunal to help Sanju team and Ranbir transform into Sanjay Dutt. Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios, this Rajkumar Hirani directorial has already crossed over Rs 200 crores in first week and is running strong at the box office.
