Sanju: How Manisha Koirala Transformed Into Nargis

Here's an example of one such picture wherein Manisha Koirala has sported the Nargis Dutt look from the film.

Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also star an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza amongst others. The film promises to bring forth the tumultuous life of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt like never before - throwing light on every stage of the actor.

Manisha, who made her comeback to Indian cinema with Dear Maya past year, shared details of her Sanju journey, reported The Hindustan Times.

She recently took to Instagram to share her very many looks as the late iconic actor. Manisha has mentioned in the post that many different looks were tried on and through various photographs and books and documentary, the final look was finalised.

Earlier, in an interview with IANS, Manisha had said, "This is new to me". I've always been a spontaneous actor.

Apart from the external appearance, Manisha did a lot of research on Nargis in order to imbibe her mannerisms.

She reveals that the film focuses on Nargis, the doting mother who wanted to protect her son from the truth about her ill health.

In the upcoming film Sanju, Manisha portrays the character of Sanjay Dutt's mother, Nargis Dutt, who died because of cancer.

Being a cancer survivor herself, it was a daunting task for her to go through the traumatic experience once again.

"I've tried to capture her essence, the core of her being", she said. She gives us a sneak peep into what goes on into creating the look. I had to understand her spirit, her soul. "Just how much I've succeeded, we will soon know".
