Sanju has finally hit screens. The early reviews of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer are positive, much to the delight of the audience. While the film boasts of a stellar star cast comprising Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala and Sonam Kapoor among others, there was much speculation about television actor Karishma Tanna’s role in the film. Refuting all rumours, the actor said she is not playing Madhuri Dixit but does have a rather interesting role.
