Vicky Kaushal's Character In Sanju Has A Fascinating Backstory

While we're still awestruck by Ranbir Kapoor's impeccable performance in Sanju, we cannot stop obsessing over Vicky Kaushal's role. He played Sanjay Dutt's best friend, Paresh Ghelani, AKA 'Kamli' in the movie.

The reel life Kamli, Vicky Kaushal, in an interview with an English daily reveals that "Kamlesh was an amalgamation of three or four of Sanjay Dutt's closest friends in real life but primarily the character is based on Paresh Ghelani who is based in the US."

But, what we really want to know is - 'Who really is Paresh Ghelani?

Paresh Ghelani (our Sanju bhai calls him 'Parya') has stuck through thick and thin with the actor and has seen some of his worst days. Paresh knew Dutt before his first debut in the film, Rocky. Clearly, the two go way back.

Paresh is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist and a really good friend of Sanjay Dutt. He has brought companies like XPRIZE to India and has built and invested in Moon Express, Viome Inc, DTV Motor Corporation, Ferrate Treatment Technologies, Casepoint, Radimmune Therapeutics.

Even though Paresh avoids the limelight, he was seen accompanying Sanjay to the screening of Sanju.
