July 29, 1959, was the day when the two legends of cinema
Sunil Dutt and Nargis gave birth to the ‘Munna Bhai’ of Bollywood, Sanjay Dutt in Bombay. Almost all are aware that Sanjay Dutt’s life is like a roller coaster ride with so many ups and downs in his personal as well as professional life. But this man has never lost hope and is still struggling to get into a normal life as he is behind the bars since 2013 because of the TADA case. He went to Lawrence School, Sanawar in Himachal Pradesh. In his teenage years, due to peer pressure, he started taking drugs. For almost nine years he took heroin and cocaine as drug intakes and after a long period he realized that he should quit it all and wished to live a normal life.
He took his father’s help who then sent him to the USA. His debut film ‘Rocky’ was not a success but after returning from rehabilitation he had so much of fresh energy that his film ‘
Naam’ was a big hit at the box office. He gave striking performances in Zinda and Tathastu. Sanjay Dutt was first married to
Richa Sharma, who died because of cancer. They have one daughter Trishala. Her second marriage was with
Rhea Pillai, which did not work for long, and they parted ways. He is now married to Maanayata, and they have two children Iqra and Shahraan. A major turn over came in Sanjay’s life during the Bombay riots between 1992 and 1933 when Dutt family tried to help the victims, especially Muslims in return of which they were threatened by the Hindus. To protect his family, Sanjay Dutt acquired an AK-56 but after the bomb blast on March 12, 1993, he too was suspected to be a part of it. He went to jail many times but in 2013, he was sentenced to five years of imprisonment, and now the country is waiting for his comeback. The most special, and memorable film for Sanjay Dutt and the whole nation was ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ where for the first and the only time, he worked with his father, Sunil Dutt.
This film and its sequel ‘
Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ were the major hits of his career. The scary and evil Kaancha played by Sanjay in the movie Agneepath was also praised by critics. He won countless awards from Filmfare to Sansui and IIFA too. His interest later moved towards politics and in serving people. Sanjay Dutt loves music specifically rock, and hard metal. He is even an excellent singer. Though he is a food lover he works out regularly, and he was the first actor in Bollywood who made a well conditioned muscular body. He is even the brand ambassador of Indian Boxing Sport. We hear that he is writing an autobiography, and so the whole nation waits for it.
