MUMBAI: A ‘rollercoaster’ is the perhaps one of the best way to describe Sanjay Dutt’s journey in Bollywood. Having acted in over 100 films, Sanjay Dutt has played varied roles from comedy roles to serious ones. From a child artiste in ‘Reshma Aur Shera’ as a qawalli singer to ‘Policegiri’, Dutt’s journey has been with heavy share of speed-breakers.
It is a moment of mixed emotions as Sanjay Dutt brings in his 54th birthday in jail. While fans and well-wishers pour their messages to Sanjay Dutt, thanks to the ‘Write 2 Sanjay’ initiative, celebrations otherwise are pretty low-key.
From the industry, Ranbir Kapoor, Raju Hirani and Bunty Walia have sent messages to Dutt in jail. But one eagerly awaits what special, wife Manyata Dutt is going to do?
It isn’t easy to achieve stardom coming straight out of a drug rehabilitation centre, but Sanjay Dutt defied all odds and became the biggest superstar in Bollywood. With star parents, Sunil Dutt and Nargis it was but obvious that the lad would take up to acting.
With wishes pouring in and blessings showered on Sanju Baba, it will light up his day. But it’s pretty certain that his fans will be deeply singing inside, “Jeeye Toh Jeeye Kaise, Bin Aapke.”
Happy Birthday, Sanjay Dutt. Here’s wishing you good health and peace.
