Rajkumar Hirani, the director of Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju, is revealing key characters from the film one by one. On Tuesday, he released a new poster from the film that features Anushka Sharma and Ranbir. However, he didn’t reveal who she is going to play in the biopic based on the life of Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt.
He tweeted, “And here is my dear friend Anushka. It’s a special appearance….but she worked on every nuance of the role for days together. Can anyone guess who she plays?….Will reveal tomorrow at the trailer launch.”
Sanju’s trailer will be released on May 30, but the film is already making all the right noises. Rishi Kapoor, who saw the trailer, heaped praise on the film’s lead and his son, Ranbir.

He said, “You don’t know how emotionally triggered I am right now at the point where Vinod (Chopra) and Raju (Rajkumar Hirani) have shown me this trailer. The first appearance of Ranbir from the jail, I thought it was Sanjay Dutt.”
“It was difficult to play the young Sanju. There were more faces we had to show; the drugs and his mother’s loss. The fun was the Munna Bhai phase,” said Ranbir at the film’s teaser launch.
Written and directed by Hirani, the movie also stars Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, and Boman Irani in important roles.
Sanju is set to be released on June 29, 2018.
