FACE TO FACE: Here Is How Ranbir Kapoor Will Morph Into Sanjay Dutt For Biopic
The casting of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt in the actor's biopic was an interesting choice. First things first, the clean-cut Ranbir looks nothing like Sanjay, who has a colourful history replete with addiction, prison stints and controversies.

But SpotboyE.com can now reveal that Ranbir is set to shock audiences with his transformation in the film.

We have been keeping a close eye on the much-talked-about project and had earlier told you that Sonam Kapoor has been cast as Tina Munim (SCOOP: Sonam & Ranbir Back As Lovers? Nov 23rd 2016) while Vicky Kaushal will play Sanjay's best friend in the film (Guess Who Will Play Sanjay Dutt's Close Friend In Ranbir Kapoor Starrer Biopic? Nov 24th 2016)

Now, we have come to know that an international team is at work to create prosthetics which will help Ranbir morph into the film's star subject.

The film which will go on floors in January, charts Sanjay Dutt's life, from his days as the young heir to Bollywood's most powerful couple Nargis and Sunil Dutt, his many romances, his foray into Bollywood to the infamous episode of imprisonment.

Dutt's prominent jawline and nose are sure to figure in the prosthetics' team's to-do list.

The team is currently working on two looks: a young, long-haired and lean Sanjay Dutt from one of his earlier hits Vidhaata and an older Sanjay Dutt from the Munna  Bhai films.

A source in the film's unit told SpotboyE.com that neither the film's director Rajkumar Hirani nor Ranbir himself, wants the performance to become a caricature of Sanjay. Instead they want to surprise the viewers with varied shades of resemblance throughout the film.

So you will not see Ranbir Kapoor playing Sanjay Dutt while looking like himself. Instead you will see a nuanced performance with the actor impersonating his subject's famous body language.

Plus, we will now have some fake body parts lending a helping hand too.

This is not the first time that Bollywood stars have relied on prosthetics to breathe life into a character. Amitabh Bachchan famously morphed into a 12-year-old suffering from the rare genetic disorder of progeria in Paa.

More recently, Shah Rukh Khan wore facial prosthetics to play a look-alike fan of himself in Fan.

And now we may soon see Ranbir Kapoor sporting a fake nose.
