The makers of Sanju have released its first song titled Main Badhiya Tub hi Badhiya that shows Ranbir Kapoor portraying Sanjay Dutt's character during the early days of his career. Many felt Ranbir looked like a "gay" while Sanjay was "macho" in reality.
The song video shows Ranbir portraying young and energetic Sanjay lip-syncing to a woman's voice. While the actor threw some girlish expressions in the song deliberately, some trolled Ranbir and the makers of the film for "insulting" Sanju's machoism.
There are a number of tweets mocking Ranbir for his "girly" act. People are questioning director Rajkumar Hirani's intention behind portraying someone like Sanjay that way.
"Don't know if they r insulting Sanju or what !!! From which angle this Gay is portraying Sanjay Dutt? Ffs [sic]," one tweeted.
"Saw #Badhiya song..Just cnt blv its from #Sanju ..Not even in dreams can baba have such gayish expressions.., I mean He is was d Macho man with that manly attitude ..this cant be him ever [sic]," another tweeted.
On the other side, Ranbir's fans tried to defend the act saying that the character shown was during Sanjay's young age, and moreover, he was supposed to lip-sync to a woman's voice. However, the internet users refuse to buy the argument.

Instead of taking PaROLE . Sanju Baba should have taken intrest in casting of his ROLE in Sanju... Badhiya is an abuse to Sanju Baba's Macho Image.. Horrible— Lafanga (@chupbesaale) June 3, 2018
