Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor, who is reprising Sanjay Dutt in a Hindi biopic based on the controversial actor’s life, looks heavier than usual these days. He says he has never before put on so much weight.
“It has been an inspiring journey for me to be playing Sanjay Dutt for the silver screen. I have never put on so much weight before and now plan to reduce some weight for the next phase of shooting,” revealed Ranbir at the launch of India’s first HP Virtual Reality (VR) lounge on Monday.
The yet to be titled film, being directed by Rajkumar Hirani, portrays seven different phases of Sanjay Dutt’s life, starting from when he was 22.
“It’s amazing to be working with a director like Rajkumar Hirani,” confessed Ranbir.
Responding to a question as to how emerging technologies like virtual reality may impact the movie-going experience, the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actor stated, “It is a mind-blowing experience to go through the VR experience. But being an actor, I fear that it might take away the audiences from movie theatres”.
Without discarding the importance of technology in our lives, he asserted that it is also important to take time out for friends and family.
“Please don’t get consumed by electronics,” he reminded all his fans.
