Rajkumar Hirani’s much-awaited project Sanju has been hitting headlines ever since it has been declared.

The highly anticipated biographical movie will witness Ranbir Kapoor donning the character of superstar Sanjay Dutt.

Veteran star Paresh Rawal will be seen playing Sunil Dutt. And at this time, the poster of well-known beauty Manisha Koirala who stepped into the shoes of Nargis Dutt gets released and it is astonishing to witness how faultlessly the actress has performed.

Previously, Hirani had stated that since Manisha is a cancer survivor and had experienced many difficult times, she would be capable of donning and showcasing the character of Nargis Dutt.

It is really amazing to see Manisha how she has gotten into the skin of the character.

At an occasion, Manisha had stated, “I am really honoured to have played Nargis Dutt ji. And it’s like any actress’ dream role. The role is quite small. It’s a special appearance. I am really excited about the film and about my role.”

While talking on her appearances in the film, she had earlier stated, “We did a couple of tests, from when she had short hair to when she had long hair. I think we have got the look somewhere closer to how Nargis Ji looked and I am quite kicked about it. Yes, I am excited about it.”

In addition to Manisha and Ranbir, the movie also has Dia Mirza who will be seen donning the role of Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanayata.

The latest poster in the promotional spree featured Sanju’s partner Maanayata Dutt.

In the fresh poster, Dia is looking strikingly similar to Maanayata.

The film’s director, while sharing the special poster on Twitter wrote, “And here comes Dia Mirza as Maanayata, someone who’s stood by #Sanju through thick and thin.” [sic]

Just like the earlier placard, you can witness that Brooklyn Bridge is present in the backdrop. This unquestionably gives a special clue that New York will don a very significant role in the movie.

Earlier, Dia Mirza has also worked with Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films in flicks such as Parineeta and Lage Raho Munna Bhai.

However, this seems like one of the complicated and hardest roles thus far.

Ranbir will also be witnessed with Sonam Kapoor in the movie. The actress dons an unspecified but a significant character in the movie.
