RSS mouthpiece slams Sanjay Dutt by calling him a drug-addict, womaniser & criminal!

Rajkumar Hirani's latest offering Sanju has stunned us all by its brilliant box office performance and the story but it looks like RSS mouthpiece Panchjanya has a lot to say and not in a good way. Apparently, he has questioned why Hindi cinema is fascinated by stories on “tainted characters”, slamming the Sanjay Dutt biopic Sanju for whitewashing the actor’s life.

Sanju released on June 29th, 2018

The magazine article, which calls Dutt a ‘criminal’ raises three questions about director Rajkumar Hirani’s film, starring Ranbir Kapoor, which has earned close to Rs 300 crore in two weeks of release.

It questions whether Sanjay, son of late actors Sunil and Nargis Dutt, had the qualities of a role model. And if the makers are boasting about the money that the film is minting, it proves that Indian cinema’s “high moral ground seems to be licking dust”.

Secondly, it questions if the movie is a PR exercise to whitewash a stained character. Panchajanya has also hit out at the film’s director Hirani, pointing out how through his last movie PK he had made a sly remark on the Hindu religion. “Now with ‘Sanju’, what are the ideals that Hirani wants to present to the youth of India?”

It also questions if Sanjay has done any extraordinary work which is worthy of praise or has he abstained from drugs completely and become an ideal husband and actor.

The larger question, however, according to the article, remains why the Mumbai film industry brings the mafia and underworld into spotlight by making films on India’s most wanted criminals who have a connection with the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts -- sometimes on Dawood Ibrahim or his sister Haseena Parkar or Chhota Rajan or Arun Gawli.

“There’s talk on social media, questioning if this is being orchestrated by someone. Who is funding these projects?” the article asks, in reference to films like Raees, Haseena Parkar, D-Day, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara.
