While the nation is rooting for Ranbir Kapoor as he has stepped into the shoes of Sanjay Dutt with sheer brilliance and versatility, you wouldn't believe what did we just hear.
In a conversation with a daily, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, producer of Sanju revealed that he was taken aback when director Rajkumar Hirani said he wanted to cast Ranbir Kapoor for the titular role in Sanju.
He said, "When he (Hirani) told me about Ranbir, I wasn’t happy at all. I thought someone else, like Ranveer Singh, could play this role much better. I thought Ranveer had the flamboyance, the emotional depth as well as the ability to change himself completely to play Sanjay Dutt. But Raju was adamant that Ranbir would be perfect. And when we started shooting and Ranbir became Sanjay Dutt, I had to kind of eat my words."
Guess, just like Deepika, Vidhu Vinod Chopra too didn't have faith in Ranbir. *hides face*
