Sanjay Dutt - the son of superstars Nargis and Sunil Dutt - has often been referred to as the controversy’s favourite child. Take a look at his past and you’d notice that the actor - who has been a part of the Indian showbiz industry for over 40 years - has lived a life that has been spiced with multiple affairs, breakups, marriages, divorces, deadly drug phase, underworld connection, court appearances and incarcerations. His is a life that is perfect for a Bollywood movie script. And it’s interesting to see that filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani decided to direct the film Sanju on Bollywood’s most controversial yet adored star.

Hirani - who had resurrected Dutt’s career with Munnabhai - is also his close friends. Will he do justice to Sanjay Dutt biopic Sanju as it is a genre he hasn’t tried so far? Or will he end up glorifying the actor in what many think is a propaganda film? Divya Pal is watching the film to live tweet the experience and get you all answers.
