After much speculation and waiting, Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt finally went on floors on January 13. Ranbir Kapoor has been going all out to get into the skin of his character. In fact, all the hard work was there for us to see, when a picture from the sets surfaced online – Ranbir sporting a long hair wig, a baggy shirt, a black waistcoat and trousers bore an uncanny resemblance to the veteran actor from the 90s. He has gained 12 kgs for this role and has tried to ape the Khalnayaka signature gait. Now reportedly, Ranbir is going one step further and is planning to get himself the exact tattoos Dutt already has.
“Ranbir has put in a lot of effort to adopt Dutt’s gait and body language, which was difficult. The latter had provided around 200 hours of footage of him walking to make the job easier. While Ranbir is currently shooting for the portions where Dutt is young, the team has started putting together all that they need to figure out for the other schedule, which will show Ranbir play a much older Dutt. Everyone knows that Dutt has a lot of tattoos on his body, so Ranbir is now contemplating getting them on his body as well. The tattoos are so intricate that Ranbir will have to sit down with the original tattoo artist to get a similar look.” a source revealed to Hindustan Times.
