This film has become one of the most talked-about films of the year and with every poster release, the buzz just becomes stronger.

You saw the recent poster of Sanju, in which Sunil Dutt is holding his son Sanjay in his arms. What you have not seen is how director Rajkumar Hirani recreated Sanjay Dutt’s old house where he lived with his parents.

While we all know that the house is no longer there, the director took help from the yesteryear actor’s sister Priya Dutt to recreate the same house for the shooting of the film. He personally reached out to Priya who further helped him with photographs and home videos of their ancestral home.

A source revealed, “Rajkumar Sir wanted to portray Sanjay’s life right from childhood as is and hence we all got into recreating the entire set up for the house where Sanjay originally resided with his parents Sunil and Nargis Dutt. The set creation took about 25 days and once it was ready, the cast and crew including the visitors on the sets were shocked and amazed to see the exact replication of the original house.”
