Over the last few months, the actor has been working out hard to get in the shape of Sanjay Dutt. he has gained almost 13 kgs with all muscle and no fat. He is also watching 200 hrs of recording as basic fodder for the biopic. He was recently seen dressed in trousers and shirt, with a waistcoat and is almost looking like Sanjay from his films Sadak and Saajan. The director may have wanted to keep the look of the lead actor away from the eyes of the audiences but it couldn’t happen due to the prying eyes of social media.
