Here's why Aamir refused to be a part of 'Sanju'
Besides Ranbir Kapoor's uncanny resemblance to Sanjay Dutt in 'Sanju', it is the stellar star cast of the film that has raised the excitement levels. Director Rajkumar Hirani recently revealed that Aamir Khan was also in talks for being a part of the film. The superstar was meant to portray Sanjay's late father Sunil Dutt. However, things didn't materialize.
Hirani reveals what stopped Aamir from coming on-board
While talking to a magazine, Hirani said, "Aamir is a friend. Any script I write, I bounce it to him. When I narrated 'Sanju' to him, he loved it and said 'I should also do something in it'." "Then I said, do this. But he was already doing the role of an elderly man in 'Dangal' (2016) around the same time," Hirani added. That's why he didn't come on-board.
Meanwhile, Ranbir's 'Sanju' avatar is wooing everybody

Besides Ranbir, the film also stars Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Boman Irani, Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Karishma Tanna, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh.
