Film Sanju: Details About Anushka Sharma’s Role Revealed
The mystery around actor Anushka Sharma’s role in Sanju was unravelled as director Rajkumar Hirani revealed that her character as a biographer is modelled on himself and Abhijat Joshi, who have co-written the film.
The film also stars Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Jim Sarbh and Vicky Kaushal.
While the trailer gave us some insight into the roles played by some of the stars, there was a lot of confusion regarding Anushka’s role.

It was earlier rumoured that Anushka will be playing a journalist, however, at the trailer launch of Sanju, director Rajkumar Hirani explained that she stars as a biographer.
“To showcase a biopic like this, you have to compress few parts into one. Similarly, Anushka Sharma’s character is derived from myself and Abhijat. She is playing a biographer from London, and she comes to India. Sanjay wants her to write a book on him whereas she doesn’t want to. We were also skeptical at first whether we should do this character or not. So basically she is us, but not as a filmmaker… as a biographer,” Hirani said according to IANS.
During her brief appearance in the trailer, Anushka is seen asking Sanju (Ranbir Kapoor) about how many affairs he’s had.
