There’s no doubt that Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt, starring Ranbir Kapoor, is one of the most anticipated films of 2017. The preparations for the movie are in full swing, and Ranbir, alongside Dia Mirza and Vicky Kaushal has already started shooting for it.

One of the more curious incidents of his life, that was to be put into the movie, was his alleged affair with Madhuri Dixit. However, if sources are to be believed, that episode is no longer in the script, courtesy Madhuri herself.

 

The source says, “Initially, Sanjay’s alleged affair with Madhuri was a part of the biopic. But when the married actress got to know about this, she quickly rushed to Rajkumar and asked him to remove this bit from the movie. Their relationship is one of the most highlighted part of Sanjay’s life, but considering the actress’ current stature, she disapproved of the part. Left with no option, Hirani had to eliminate it from the film.” The movie will also star Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor as the leading ladies in the biopic.
