Manisha Koirala has a guest appearance in Sanju. And to be true, I am looking for scripts that are hard and challenging in nature, which will make me go — okay I have to work hard. Whatever we saw of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt in the film’s trailer is unbelievable. He is such a cool guy because all his films are fun, light hearted and yet have a serious message in it. She is a legendary figure, no matter how forward we go, or whatever, her name would always be remembered, she would always be tagged as a legendary actor. Director Rajkumar Hirani shared a new poster of Sanju which shows Manisha Koirala as Nargis in all her glory. People remember her for films.”
“It (the role) is challenging and I am excited to play her role. But even the film’s supporting actors have put in a lot of hard work to get their individual roles correct. From the correct makeup to expressions, she is bearing a striking resemblance with the yesteryear actor. And to top it all, it is Raju Hirani’s film. He makes you think. Sanju also features Paresh Rawal playing Ranbir’s father and Diza Mirza as his wife Maanayata, apart from Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor.
