Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life, starring Ranbir Kapoor has been released in cinemas. The film which traces all phase of Sanjay Dutt’s life, from early Rocky days to drug phase to Yerwada jail to life post jail is getting amazing response from the audience.
The film has an ensemble star cast playing real-life characters. But, today we are going to meet you one special character who’s everyone is speculating about and he is none another than Vicky Kaushal.
In the film, Vicky is seen playing the role of Ranbir (Sanjay Dutt) friend. Well, the actor’s character is actually inspired by Sanjay Dutt’s real life best friend Paresh Ghelani.
Paresh is a very dear friend of Sanjay Dutt who is based out in America. The duo shares a great bond with each other. SanjayDutt fondly refers him as Parya.
When actor Sanjay Dutt walked out of Pune’s Central Jail on February 25, 2016, having served the last 42 months of his five-year imprisonment – following his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case – among the many who made it a point to be there that day was Paresh Ghelani. He had flown down especially to spend time with the actor.
While talking about Vicky Kaushal’s character, Rajkumar Hirani shared, “Sanjay Dutt had many friends in his life. One such friend of Sanjay lives in America, Vicky’s character traits are based on this friend of Sanju whose name is Paresh”.
The real-life essence of the character of Paresh Ghelani has been retained in the film which sees the character of Paresh standing by the actors’ side through his thick and thin in life.
Meanwhile, the biopic also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Karishma Tanna, Dia Mirza and Jim Sarbh.
