Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju, a biopic on the controversial life of Sanjay Dutt, is about to hit the theatres on June 29. The trailer and posters of Sanju are proof that Ranbir Kapoor has undergone drastic transformation to play Sanjay Dutt convincingly. Before the much-anticipated film hits the big screen, let’s have a look at 5 Bollywood biopics which emerged as big blockbusters and the actors in the biopics went through a major transformation in order to do justice to their roles.
With well-made biopics in Bollywood such as MS Dhoni; The Untold Story, which was based on the life of former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, The Dirty Picture, which narrated the story of South actress Silk Smitha, Farhan Akhtar-starrer Bhaag Milkha Bhaagh which was a biopic on flying Sikh Milkha Singh, Mary Kom based on the inspiring story of boxing legend Mary Kom or Paan Singh Tomar which was based on the life of an athlete who was forced to become a dacoit, Bollywood filmmakers have narrated these real-life stories in a beautiful and captivating manner because of which these stories touched the hearts of many.
May it be the scene showing the winning sixer in MS Dhoni or the heartbreaking scene of partition in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, these stories, their narrations and the acting has made these biopics iconic.
Now the question arises here is that if Rajkumar Hirani’s film will be able to win the hearts of the audiences just like these biopics in the past did. Fans would agree that may it be the inspiring journey of Mary Kom’s truly inspirational journey or Paan Singh Tomar and Silk Smitha’s ironical stories; they have left a mark on their hearts forever.
From Priyanka Chopra in Mary Kom to Farhan Akhtar in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, these actors got under the skin of their characters to do justice to their roles.
Although Ranbir has managed to impress his fans with his uncanny resemblance with Sanjay and since the film has been helmed by a talented and creative director like Rajkumar Hirani, we do have faith in the biopic but its fate will be decided once it gets released on June 29.
