Various Aspects of Sanjay Dutt We Might Get To See In Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju
With Sanju’s release date coming near and we are just waiting for the theatre gates to open up so that we can witness the rollercoaster ride of Sanjay Dutt.
Here are some of the basic aspects of Sanjay Dutt’s life we might get to see in the movie:
1. Drugs Phase: This phase started when his mother was in the verge of dying because of cancer as he was very close to his mother. The mother’s death not affected his debut film but it affected him personally and he indulged in every type of drugs which caused him severe blows in his career.
2. Romantic Affairs: He was first involved with Tina Munim and then his first wife, Richa Sharma entered during the muhurat shoot and they were hitched shortly. Unfortunately, she breathed her last in New York in the year 1996. Then his second wife Rhea Pillai walked in and it ended up in bitter divorce because of her affair with tennis star Leander Paes. During his first marriage he had an alleged affair with Madhuri Dixit, which ended in a bitter note. Finally he met Manyata who stood by him at tough times. From his first marriage he had a daughter Trishala Dutt who currently resides in New York and Dutt lost the custody battle after his 1st wife’s death.
3. Friendships with Underworld: It was said that he was very close with the high profile gangsters like Dawood Ibrahim who had a consignment of illegal weapons like AK 56, grenades which were stored in Sanjay Dutt’s home during the Bombay riots and how the friendship happened during Tea parties and dinner parties. Sources stated that Feroz Khan was the one who made Sanjay Dutt meet Dawood Ibrahim.
4. Jail Sentence: The whole world knew about this and even the film fraternity had their extended support for the actor knowing the fact that he will survive this battle like the lion in the wild. Which he ultimately did in the year 2016 when the actor was released on good behavior. There were moments when Sanjay Dutt was completely baffled when he heard the news and couldn’t able to concentrate while shooting in Mauritius and director Subhash Ghai used his jail sentence to get more publicity for Khalnayak. In most cases, he was even branded as a traitor. But his family stood like a rock and helped him in coping up with the trauma. It seems on Raksha Bandhan, his sister Priya Dutt came to visit him on Rakhi and Sanjay Dutt offered her his jail lunch coupon which Priya Dutt is possessing even now. When he was sentenced for 5 years in prison for illegal possession of weapons, Dutt started making a living by earning Rs 450 a day by making paper bags and become an RJ in the jail complex.
5. Back From The Dead moments: Sadak gave him a big break post his drug addiction phase. After his jail sentence, there were films which were failing terribly and then his best friend Mahesh Manjrekar offered him Vaastav which was a turning point in his career for which he won the best actor for his role as Raghu, a simple chap who turns into a cold-blooded gangster because of a mishap. His role of Ajju Rehan in Kaante earned him a critics award in 2003. Most of us remember him for his role as Murli Prasad Sharma aka Munna Bhai which shed the bad boy image of Sanjay Dutt and gave us a new version of Sanjay Dutt we love even now.
