Rajkumar Hirani speaks out against the criticism received for Sanju


via filmfares https://ift.tt/2nuqdsL Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju was a biopic based on the life of the Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. The film takes us through the ups and downs in the life of the superstar and has already become the biggest hit of the year so far. The character of Sanjay Dutt was portrayed by Ranbir Kapoor in the film and he was supported by a talented cast comprising Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma, and Jim Sarbh. While people did find the film entertaining, concerned were raised about the unnecessary media bashing and the attempt to whitewash Sanjay Dutt’s image.

Recently, at an event, Rajkumar Hirani was asked why did he allow media bashing and whether he tried to whitewash Sanjay Dutt's image with Sanju. Hirani replied saying, “If I start on that, I can talk on it for the full day." On the other hand, writer Abhijat Joshi clarified, "There is no media bashing at all. We are great fans of the media. What we are bashing is a certain section which sensationalises things and uses a question mark to make things ‘chatpata’ (spicy). That has been critiqued, and I am amazed there has been no introspection on that side. No one has even said that it happens. Today if the world believes that he had RDX, it’s based on that one news, so we have criticised that. But now when we are told that the whole film is about media bashing, it’s again picking up a headline. When we show a corrupt police officer, it doesn’t mean all policemen are wrong… It’s a section. Whitewashing as a word is being thrown open. If you’ve watched the film, what was Sanju’s crime. Yes, he kept the gun, and we have shown that. We have shown that he served five years in jail and that he is saying it was a mistake… So where is the question of whitewashing? What have I whitewashed? I want to understand that.”
