However, Paresh Rawal opened up that portraying the role of legendary actor wasn’t an easy job. He revealed that Sunil Dutt always wanted him to play his role. He further revealed that there was some intervention about getting the role.
Amidst the interview, he revealed a very heart touching incident related to Sanjay Dutt which somehow connected the dots and divine intervention with him getting the role. He said :
“On May 25, 2005, I was shooting for a movie and I called up home to say that I will be late. And during the shooting, we got to know that Dutt Sahab (Sunil Dutt) has passed away, so I called up my wife and said I will come a bit late because Dutt Sahab has passed away and I am going to his house. She then told me that there is a letter for you from him (Sunil Dutt). I asked her what the letter was and she said it is for wishing you a happy birthday. I told her that my birthday is on May 30, which is five days away but she said the letter is for you and she even read it to me. I was so surprised. Why would Dutt Sahab send me a birthday letter five days before my birthday? And we have never exchanged any holiday greetings in the past – be it Diwali or Christmas – so why would he write to me?”
He further shared:
“On January 3, 2017, I asked my wife to take out a couple of my documents as I was going to meet Rajkumar Hirani. I told her I will pick up those documents when I come back. When I was sitting with Rajkumar Hirani, my wife called me and said that along with the documents, that letter from Sunil Dutt Sahab was also there. She asked me what I wanted to do about it. And I was stunned as I was narrated the part of Sunil Dutt for the movie.”
“See, usually you don’t keep birthday cards for 12 years, you discard them. You forget about them, but that letter was there with all my important documents and it was again found on the same day Rajkumar Hirani narrated the ‘Sanju’ role to me. It is like a divine intervention. I showed that letter to Rajkumar Hirani later,”
Paresh Rawal and Sunil Dutt have worked together in a single movie, Virodhi. We just can’t wait to see Paresh Rawal filling the shoes of Sunil Dutt in the movie.
