Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has rubbished baseless rumours of his next directorial ‘Sanjay Dutt Biopic’ releasing during the Eid weekend next year.
The film was previously announced for theatrical release in March 2018, but after the ‘Tubelight’ debacle last week, media-created reports started doing the rounds that Vidhu Vinod Chopra is now targeting the Eid weekend.
In a statement, Hirani said “All these are baseless rumours. The film will release as per schedule in March 2018.”
The film stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. It also has Paresh Rawal (Sunil Dutt), Manisha Koirala (Nargis), Dia Mirza (Manyata Dutt), Sonam Kapoor (Tina Munim), Karishma Tanna (Madhuri Dixit) and Anushka Sharma.
The untitled Dutt biopic is scheduled to release in theatres on March 30.
