Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt –
Sanju – is shattering records at the ticket windows and HIrani, Vidhu Vinod
Chopra are laughing their way to the bank- almost every day.
However, Ram Gopal Varma, who always has a trick up his sleeve, is now contemplating another biopic on the same star and planning to call it- Sanju: The Real Story.

Hirani's film has been seen with a magnifying glass by some people and considered as a case for whitewashing Dutt’s life. The story broken in Mumbai Mirror this morning says, "Varma’s film will focus only on his possession of the AK-56 rifle by the 59-year-old actor’s life."
When Mirror reached out to Varma on Thursday evening, he confirmed the news with a terse -- “Yes, I am making the film.”

Mirror further states: According to a source, RGV watched Hirani’s Sanju and loved it for its emotional intensity but was disappointed that it dealt with the actor’s brush with law in the backdrop of the 1993 blasts only peripherally. “That Dutt was doing drugs, was traumatised by his mother’s battle with cancer [she died just three days before the release of his first film Rocky], had multiple flings, many of them one-night stands, is all well documented,” says the source, adding that what people wanted was background information that only Sanjay would know on the controversy which dogged him for over two decades.
Mirror adds: RGV’s film will delve into details like who were the people who threatened Dutt’s family — spurring him to acquire the rifle that got him in trouble — how the firearm was delivered to him, and how it was disposed of.
Varma has directed Dutt in two films- Daud and Department.
