During a recent interview, Manisha told news agency IANS: "For Sanju, I did a lot of research. I have tried to capture her essence, the core of her being. Just looking like her, or combing my hair the way she did, is not enough. I had to understand her spirit, her soul. Just how much I've succeeded, we will soon know."
Talking to PTI, Manisha revealed that being a cancer survivor herself, it was traumatic for her to live through it again in Sanju.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju will hit the screens on June 29.
