Dutt's life saw dizzying heights and darkest depths, adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushing off with the underworld, prison terms and loss of loved ones. However, the actor had found himself in a tricky or rather scary situation when he was completing his jail term.

One of Sanjay Dutt's fellow jail inmate was assigned as the actor's barber who used to shave his beard whenever required. Once while having a conversation, Sanju discovered that the barber had been convicted of murdering his wife with a knife.

Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also star an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza amongst others.

Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios, Sanju promises to take on a rollercoaster ride while exploring various aspects of Sanjay Dutt's controversial life.
