Raju Hirani talks about why PK screening for Sanjay Dutt was denied in jail!

The countdown for the biggest and most expected film of the year, PK, has already begun. Almost two weeks left for the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film to release, and the promotion of the Aamir Khan-Sanjay Dutt-Anushka Sharma starrer is in full swing.

Amidst all the last minute post-production work, Raju Hirani admits he’s getting nervous since he’s turned producer for the first time with PK. At the same time, he’s equally happy with the way PK has shaped up and that his movie actors have been promoting the film to their best. But Rajkumar Hirani, or Raju, insists that he’s missing his dear friend and PK actor Sanjay Dutt during the promotion as he believes that Dutt has delivered a marvellous performance.

While everyone is eagerly waiting for the film to hit the screens, Sanju baba on the other hand won’t be able to watch it. Though the makers have tried their best to arrange a special screening for Sanju inside the jail, it didn’t work out.

“We were trying to host a special screening of PK for Sanju inside the jail but things unluckily didn’t work,” says Raju during a media interaction. On being asked whether Sanjay’s family, including his wife Maanayata Dutt, sisters and other relatives will get to see the movie, the filmmaker tells, “Definitely, we will invite Sanju’s family to see the movie once the final print is ready.”

A few months ago, there were reports that the makers wrote to the jail authorities to hold a special screening of the movie for Dutt and other prisoners in jail but much to their dismay they weren’t given the permission.
