The Rashtriya Swayamsevek Sangh (RSS) in its mouthpiece Panchjanya, has slammed filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani for glorifying actor Sanjay Dutt in the film 'Sanju', Zee News has reported.

"Behind making the biopic 'Sanju', does Rajkumar Hirani have the intention of glorifying Sanjay Dutt or earn profits at the box office?" asked the magazine, in an article titled 'Kirdaar Daagdaar' (tarnished character).

The article states that the actor had undergone imprisonment for hiding weapons at his home. It has also accused the filmmaker of whitewashing the actor's life.

“Did Sanjay Dutt quit his bad habits. What example has he set for the youth of the country?" the magazine asked. It also said that while Hollywood is making movies on great personalities such as mathematician Ramanujan, Bollywood is making movies glorifying the underworld dons.

The movie has already had box office collections of over Rs 250 crore in its two week run.
