Asked if the Dutt biopic will mark the return of Ranbir as a superstar, Hirani said,"He was always there, he never went away. Because the way Ranbir Kapoor has acted as Sanjay Dutt and the way he (Hirani) has directed I was shocked, amazed and happy.

"Apparently, the interaction between these two vehicles began much further east towards Ford Drive, at the Mississauga/Oakville border, travelling through Oakville and into Burlington". The driver, a 23-year-old from Stoney Creek, was unharmed.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says they are looking at alcohol, speed and aggressive driving as factors in this crash. Schmidt said there might be another vehicle, also described as an Audi, involved in the alleged racing.

Police are asking for the drivers of the Audi cars to come forward to give information from their perspective about the events that night.

"It's your obligation to tell the truth and come forward, it's the right thing to do, the best thing to do, it needs to be done", Schmidt said. No charges have been laid.
