Ranbir Kapoor best to play Sanjay Dutt, says Suniel Shetty


Ranbir Kapoor is the best fit to play Sanjay Dutt on-screen, says the latter’s Rudraksh co-star Suniel Shetty.

Shetty was present at the semi-final of the Wheelchair Cricket Series between India and Bangladesh on Tuesday. As Dutt’s biopic is in the making, Shetty was asked if there will ever be a film on his life.

“I don’t think its worthy, but Sanjay’s biopic is happening and I think nobody else would do a better job at playing Sanjay than Ranbir. I saw Ranbir’s pictures and he looks exactly like Sanjay,” said Shetty. The actor was happy about supporting a tournament for the differently abled.

“So when I was told such a tournament was going to take place between two countries [Bangladesh and India], I thought it is important that I become a part of this. I always think God has given us so many privileges, so it is important that we can do as much as possible for others,” he added.

He said people are trying to do their bit for the specially-abled people.

“I run an NGO myself. It is called Save the Children India. They work really hard for specially-abled kids. They also organise sports tournaments for them and we get around 18 to 19 teams from Maharashtra. Just looking at them and their spirit makes you feel like you have to do more and more for them,” said Shetty.

On the big screen, the actor was last seen in a negative role in the 2017 release A Gentleman, directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. It also featured Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez.

Shetty’s upcoming project is titled A. B. C., directed by Ramkumar Shedge and produced by Meehir Kulkarni. The other cast members include Tamannaah Bhatia, Sunny Pawar, Vijay Patkar and Ravi Kishan.
