MUMBAI: Actor-producer Sanjay Dutt who has three children – Trishala and the twins – Shahraan and Iqra, wants to be like his father and would advise his children to learn from his mistakes.

"I want to be like my father. Dutt saheb was like a great support in our lives. I want to be exactly like him. But I would also tell my kids how was I during my childhood days and that don’t be like me," said the 52 year old, who had a turbulent life because of his drug addiction, to reporters.

Sanjay couldn’t spend much time with Trishala, who grew up in America is now trying to make up by spending quality time with his twins. "I have never enjoyed my fatherhood with Trishala. I have missed all those golden moments. So now it’s a wonderful experience for me. It’s a beautiful feeling," he explained.

Remembered most because of his hit films like Naam, Sadak, Saajan, Khalnayak, Vastav and the Munnabhai series, Sanjay feels that his legacy has nothing to with him making a mark.

"An actor doesn’t make a mark in the showbiz because of the Parents. Dutt saheb had launched me, but later what you have within you, you have to prove that. Main thing is to be a good human being. The public made me a star, so how I approach my fans that matters a lot," he explained.
