The Bollywood superstar—Aamir Khan informed that he was offered to play a role in the upcoming Rajkumar Hirani’s movie—Sanju. The role was of the late Sunil Dutt. The upcoming attraction of Hirani is a biopic on the actor—Sanjay Dutt’s life.
As per Aamir Khan, he refused to play the offered role of Sunil Dutt as he wanted to play the title character. He said that he was approached by Rajkumar Hirani for the role of Sunil Dutt. The superstar added that he loved the script. The role that was offered to him was fantastic as the story mainly revolved around the father-son bonding. However, the role of Sanju was unbelievable.
Aamir Khan said as an actor he told Hirani that the role of Sanjay Dutt is so, so wonderful that it has actually captured his heart, so either he could do Sanju’s role in the film—which obviously he cannot as that is being played by Ranbir Kapoor, so he just told him not to offer him anything in this film.
Aamir who has completed thirty years in the Indian film industry thinks highly of Ranbir Kapoor and is sure that he would have done really well in the film.
He said that he could not wait to watch the movie. The actor has previous records of working with Hirani in films like 3 Idiots and PK—both of these films have done not only good business but also touched many hearts.
In real life, Aamir Khan had a strong bond with Sunil Dutt. Recalling some fond memories of the late actor he said that Sunil Dutt always used to send him telegrams back in those days to wish on special occasions like Eid, Diwali, Birthday, or if any of his films did well, the late actor used to send him congratulations note.
