Ranbir Kapoor reacts to Ranveer Singh being first choice for ‘Sanju’

  • facebook

#RanbirKapoor has stepped into the shoes of #SanjayDutt for #Sanju, and how. If many had apprehensions about Ranbir pulling off a Sanjay Dutt on the big screen, it all changed after the trailer of Sanju hit the screens.

If Ranbir looks like a spitting image of Bollywood original bad boy, he has also nailed the accent and physique.

But it was only recently that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra revealed that Ranbir was not the first choice for Sanju. He was keen to rope in Ranveer Singh to play Sanjay Dutt in the biopic. "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," Chopra had said.

But after working with Ranbir, he realised that he had to eat his words.

When Ranbir, who is currently busy with the promotions of Sanju, was asked about Chopra's comment, the 35-year-old actor said that he was clueless about it.

When asked Arjun whether he and his co-actress Parineeti  is ready to get compared with successful pair Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif who starred in ‘Namastey London’, he said “Namastey London’ had a different story and our film has a different story.

​Irrfan Khan Talks About his Illness and Treatment

  • facebook

Good news for #IrrfanKhan Fans, the actor is back and talks about treatment and the immense pain he suffered while on the road to recovery from #neuroendocrinecancer.

A couple of months ago, Irrfan Khan revealed that he has been diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer. His illness came as a shock for his fans but the shock wasn’t limited to just his fans, this episode has been quite “different” for Irrfan as well.

Media and actor’s peers and colleagues have all respected his privacy and even Irrfan has not interacted with the media since his diagnosis. Now he talks about it.

“It’s been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game,” said Irrfan.

He continued, “In this chaos, shocked, afraid and in panic, while on one of the terrifying hospital visits, I blabber to my son, ‘The only thing I expect from ME is not to face this crisis in this present state. I desperately need my feet. Fear and panic should not overrule me and make me miserable.’ That was my INTENTION. AND THEN PAIN HIT.”
