Ranbir Kapoor all smiles as he arrives for Sanju screening. While Ranbir Kapoor is receiving appreciation from all and sundry for slipping into the role of Sanjay Dutt for Sanju, the actor said the transformation was not easy. He revealed in an interview with mid-day that as part of his prep, he met stand-up comic Dr Sanket Bhosale, who is known to mimic Dutt effortlessly. Though all praise for Bhosale's mimicry skills, Kapoor points out that the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film required a different approach
Ranbir Kapoor came in for the Sanju screening with his Brahmastra co-star Alia Bhatt. Ranbir Kapoor in an interview with mid-day said, "I met Sanket to understand what he thinks of Dutt, but in that very meeting, I realised this is not the path I want to take. He does a comic version of a drunk Sanjay Dutt, but I am not essaying that. I am playing him all the way from when he was 20 till today. We have explored his human side in the film. I also realised that I had to discover my own way of expressing the character."

Rawal said in an interview, "I have worked with various actors, but working with Ranbir was something else. He is a talented actor. And, let me tell you, playing Sanjay Dutt, who we see every now and then on-screen, is certainly not easy for any actor. The way Ranbir internalised and delivered the character was [commendable]. He is an inspiration for the next generation."
