After “Bombay Velvet” and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” for the third time on the silver screen Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma will be seen together. As per the latest reports Anushka Sharma will play a small role of a journalist in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic being made by good friend Raju Hirani, with Ranbir Kapoor playing the titular character. There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the biopic ever since it was announced a few months back, with Ayan Mukherji's Dragon which also has Ranbir playing the lead role, clashing with its schedule.
The dates have been sorted now, and it has come to light that Anushka will play a scribe who chronicle Dutt's life as it progresses. The role is a cameo, and the PK actor was game for it when the makers approached her for it, as reported by media
After working with Rajkumar Hirani in Indian cinema’s biggest box office hit PK, there were reports that she’d be playing either the character of Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt’s girlfriend, once upon a time or Manyata Dutt, Sanjay Dutt’s wife. But a source close to the film told the media, “Anushka is not playing Manyata or even any of Sanjay’s love interest. It’s a cameo appearance, she will be seen as a scribe/biographer who chronicles Sanjay’s life in the film.” When Rajkumar Hirani was asked about the same via text message he was unavailable for comment. His spokesperson confirmed the news without divulging any further details.
