When asked who suits best for the role of Sanjay Dutt's father, Hirani promptly replied Amitabh Bachchan. However, Big B is yet to give his nod on the project.

A source close to Sanjay Dutt has revealed that the actor considers Amitabh Bachchan as his father figure and therefore Big B's name for playing the role of Sunil Dutt is a unanimous decision.

Hirani has already roped in Ranbir Kapoor to essay the role of Sanju Baba. The Barfi actor who was also seen at the climax scene of PK seems to be excited about the project.

“Portraying Sanjay sir on screen is a big task. And it comes with a huge responsibility. He has had a very entertaining, engaging and a roller-coaster kind of a life. I think Raju sir himself hasn’t decided if he wants to do it or not,” Ranbir said.

Rajkumari Hirani who is riding high on the success of PK plans to start the project when Sanjay Dutt is set free from jail.
