New Delhi: Mid-day reports, Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkumar Hirani are planning to launch the teaser of their much-talked about the film on Sanjay Dutt during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match next week (April 24) at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. Sanjay Dutt will also be there. On the channel where IPL matches are aired, the team has proposed to launch the teaser during a pre T-20 show. A source told to mid-day, “The 30-minute chat will be moderated by Rajkumar Hirani while Ranbir will talk about slipping into the character and the challenges they faced while shooting, Sanjay Dutt will speak about how he was surprised to see Ranbir's transformation”.
The Dutt biopic will show Sanjay Dutt's rise to fame as a star, his drugs phase, his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai Blasts case and his tryst with the law. The film went on floors last year in January.
"Rajkumar Hirani will also shed light on how difficult it was to pen an engrossing script, especially since Sanjay's life has been widely covered by the press. The officials at Fox Star have already started a dialogue with the channel for this. The idea is to ensure that the teaser reaches as many people across the country as possible, which explains the launch on the cricket pitch as well." The source told to mid-day. A formal approval from the officials is awaited.
Mid-day also reports that the biopic's sneak peek will also be attached to Hollywood film Avengers: Infinity War, which hits theatres on April 27. Before the first trailer is launched, the makers of the film are also planning to release a series of short video as a run-up.
On June 29, the Dutt biopic also stars Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Manisha Koirala and Paresh Rawal and is scheduled to hit theatres.
