Sanju fled from a rehab center in America and begged on the streets so that he could afford to buy a bus ticket and meet his friend.

Just 3 days before the premiere of Sanju's debut film "Rocky", he lost his mother, Nargis Dutt.

Initially, Dutt was opposed to the idea of Ranbir playing Sanjay Dutt. In fact, Dutt made fun of Ranbir’s choice of films.

This movie's sensor board passed the film with almost no cuts and a ‘UA’ certificate.

Many of the women that Dutt dated are not mentioned by name in the film.

Several titles for the biopic like ‘Dutt’, ‘Baba’, and ‘Sanju Baba’ were considered and discarded.

The real Sanjay Dutt saw and loved the film.

Sanju uses one of Sanjay Dutt’s careers most iconic songs Kya yeh pyar hai composed by R D Burman, sung originally by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar for Sanjay Dutt’s debut film Rocky.

Jim Sarbh is rumoured to play Salman Khan with whom Sanjay Dutt has shared a very stormy relationship over the years.

Sanjay Dutt himself appears at the end of the film.
