SEE PICS: Ranbir Kapoor in his Sanjay Dutt avatar makes him look totally unrecognisable

Ranbir Kapoor has stepped into the shoes of Bollywood's popular Khalnayak. The 34-year-old, who is busy bringing Sanjay Dutt's life on 70mm, was spotted shooting for the biopic in Mumbai. But this time around in a new avatar.

Known to play versatile roles, Ranbir has taken up the challenge of bringing Dutt's life alive on screen. Receding hair line and a moustache, Ranbir looks almost unrecognisable this new avatar. Going by the look, it seems Ranbir is shooting for a portion from Sanjay's later part of life.

If reports are to be believed, Ranbir will be seen sporting six, totally different looks in Dutt that will highlight different phases in Sanjay Dutt's life.

Tentatively titled Dutt, the film will focus on Sanjay's formative years, his relation with his father Sunil Dutt, his struggles coping up with the loss of his mother, his many affairs, etc.

Paresh Rawal is playing the role of Sunil Dutt while Manisha Koirala, Sanjay's co-star in many film, is starring as Nargis, Sanju baba's mom. Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Jim Sarbh and Vicky Kaushal play pivotal roles in the film.
