We had earlier reported that the biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt would feature Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. According to new reports, Anushka Sharma has been roped in for the same project as well; however, not as Ranbir’s love interest in the film. Anushka might be seen playing a scribe who has a crucial role in the narration of Sanjay’s life story.
Earlier, there were reports that Anushka would be playing the role of Richa Sharma or Rhea Pillai, one of the Sanjay’s former wives.
Ranbir and Anushka were seen together in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Bombay Velvet’ and have also coupled up in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
The biopic on Dutt is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani and is expected to go on floors sometime next year.
