Kamli Is Not Based On Sanjay’s Friend Paresh Ghelani, Says Vicky Kaushal. Then Who Is Kamli?
Ranbir Kapoor starrer “Sanju” which is based on the life of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has already entered the 300 crore club in India while it has earned more than Rs. 500 crore as far as worldwide collections are concerned.
Ranbir has been praised a lot for his acting performance in the movie but there is one more actor who has stood out with his solid performance despite not being the main character. We are talking about none other than Vicky Kaushal who played the character of Sanjay Dutt’s friend Kamli in “Sanju”.
It was being said that Kamli is based on Sanjay’s real-life friend Paresh Ghelani but while talking to SpotboyE, Vicky said that Kamli is a combination of Dutt’s 3-4 friends and not just Paresh.
Vicky Kaushal said,
“I had met Pareshji, he had come once to meet Dutt sir when we were shooting.”
“The characterisation of Kamli in Sanju is pretty fictionalised but yes, the incidents between the two friends did happen. Kamli’s characterisation is an amalgamation of 3-4 friends of Dutt sir, it’s not Pareshji per se.”
Sanjay Dutt also took to Twitter and thanked Paresh for being his “pillar of strength”. The actor wrote, “@pareshghelani you are the pillar of my strength. Thank you for being there, then and now. Welcome to the world of social media buddy! Love you lots.”

Just a day before that, Paresh wrote a letter after watching the movie and posted it on social media as he made his debut on the medium.
“Sanju is an ode to falling, rising, making mistakes and learning, flaws, imperfection – everything that defines the core of friendship. It is more importantly a relentless pursuit of life with all its shades. I know I share this sentiment with all friends and family close to him.”
its been many years of staying away from the social media, i finally give-in to embrace it. as i begin, here to you my brother @duttsanjay a note that i have been writing in my head and heart for a very long time and now here it is all in the open. pic.twitter.com/tJ59jvktl3

The movie shows the moments shared by the two friends and how Kamli helped Sanjay when his relationship with his father turned sour. Vicky and Ranbir become good friends while shooting for the flick and when Vicky congratulated Ranbir on the film’s success, the latter expressed his desire to hug him.
