Aamir Khan is reportedly said to have liked the script and immediately announced that he would like to play the role of Sanjay Dutt’s father Sunil Dutt. Rajkumar Hirani was very much happy but Aamir Khan has backed off from the project in the last minute as he felt that doing a middle-aged father role after Dangal might be a bad option. As a result, Amir Khan backed off the project and the makers roped in another actor for the role of Sunil Dutt.
Bollywood Mr perfectionist Aamir Khan shares a good rapport with sensational director Rajkumar Hirani. The combination has delivered super hits in the past. Rajkumar Hirani recently revealed that he narrates his movie script first to Aamir Khan and in the same manner he narrated the script of Sanju which is the biopic based on the life of Sanjay Dutt.
