#RanbirKapoor while talking about portraying his icon in the biopic said, this film is not an acting gig for him, but an opportunity.
Ranbir along with Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raju Hirani was present at the teaser launch of 'Sanju', the Sanjay Dutt biopic on Tuesday.
After knowing Sanjay Dutt for all his life when asked if he made special observations to portray the character he said, "I have always been a Sanjay Dutt fan, for me, it was a fan trying to play his icon. so I think the hardest thing I did was give myself the confidence that I can play this man. When Raju sir told me about this film I didn't have the confidence because I thought I wouldn't be able to do it. I don't have the courage; don't have the understanding or the Acting chops to do it.
This is not an Acting Gig for me. I haven't tried to show goof acting bad acting or showcase my talent. I think it was just the opportunity to be part of a story of a person who I consider to be my icon.
When asked out of the 6 chapters of Sanju's life, which one was difficult to portray, Kapoor said, "The difficult one was which id dint expect was the young Sanju, because there were a lot of facets that we had to show first the drugs then coming out of it, then his mother's death and the most fun was Munna Bhai's phase and I enjoyed doing it.
