Sanjay Dutt biopic shoot stalled in Mumbai; photos of Ranbir Kapoor’s new look leaked
Over Wednesday — 12 April 2017 — the project was once again the focus of much attention, as photos emerged of its leading man Ranbir Kapoor looking remarkably like Dutt in his current avatar.
However, the bigger item of news that the shoot of the biopic was stalled in Mumbai by angry citizens, who felt the crew was conjesting the road.
The Wednesday morning shoot schedule required Ranbir to drive up to Imperial Heights (Dutt’s home in the tony Pali Hill area in the suburb of Bandra, where a set had been created) in a Ferrari and then head inside for the indoor portions of the scene.
The crew began shooting at 6 am, but as the morning hours progressed, residents and commuters in the area, whose morning routines had been held up, angrily held up the proceedings.
The shoot was stalled for quite a while, until Rajkumar Hirani stepped out and defused the situation.
However, the Pali Hill Residents Association was angry that the area had been littered by the film’s crew, reports about the incident stated.
Meanwhile, some photos of Ranbir were snapped as he emerged on the balcony of Imperial Heights. With a mustache and full beard, tilak on his forehead and a thinning crown of hair, he easily passed off for Sanjay Dutt.
