Well-known star Ranbir Kapoor has been gathering admiration for all sides for his superb depiction of Sanjay Dutt in the flick Sanju.

The film is made about Sanjay Dutt’s life.

When Rishi Kapoor was asked the father if he would like to have a biographical movie made on his life, the immediate reply was, “I don’t think that’s a good idea … my life is zero and boring! Nobody should attempt at making a film on my life.”

But, the actor is swift to add that he is not against the thought of being a part of a biographical movie made on someone else’s life, where he has to play the lead character.

He disclosed, “Let me tell you that I have been approached for a biopic. And it’s very interesting that somebody wants me to agree at this stage [of my career] to do it. They want to make a biopic on Khushwant Singh with me [portraying Singh].”

The actor said, “When I heard about it, I said it sounds good because a lot of people do not know [about] his earlier life. He had a very daring and colourful life in his younger days. But, they would have to take somebody else to portray his younger version. I can play the ‘fat’ Khushwant Singh, maybe with a little more of padding on my body (laughs).”

When the reports asked, is the movie taking place anytime shortly, he answered, “It was about six months back when somebody asked me about this. And I even said yes to it. I don’t know what is happening after that.”
