Recently, the most awaited movie of the year 2018, Sanju has released. The Rajkumar Hirani’s film is a biopic of Sanjay Dutt’s life and features Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt. The film is being praised by all the Bollywood fans and the acting of Ranbir Kapoor in the shoes of Sanjay Dutt is being said as phenomenal. The cinema theatres are going houseful across the country and the fans have reached on to see what amazing work Rajkumar Hirani and his team has done. After this movie, many controversies of Sanjay Dutt are being talked of. One of the controversies of Sanjay Dutt is also with Manish Koirala. Not really a controversy I would say, but yes there is something to share about.
Manisha Koirala is playing the role of Sanjay Dutt’s mom in his biopic. In a recent interview Manisha Koirala she revealed that when she used to work with Sanjay Dutt during 1990’s or 2000’s, Sanju once asked her that how she’s not having a crush on him. In an interview, Manisha says, “He was always a boss. As a child when I was in school, I was his fan of. As a child growing up, I had a major crush on him. Then, I got to work with him.” Manisha Koirala also said that Sanjay Dutt also teased her during the shooting of one of her films with him where he said, “Now you are my colleague. There’s no messing around there”
Manisha Koirala says that she has been one of the biggest fans of Sanjay Dutt. She also said that she shares a great bond with the Khalnayak of our film industry. Manisha Koirala said in the interview that Sanjay Dutt sometimes trusts wrong people in his life which eventually lands him into trouble. Manisha says, “I’ve always have had a fondness and warm feelings for him. I have known him over the years – we have done five or six movies, and he has been the person who is totally all heart. He trusts people and that would lead him into trouble.”
Manisha also says that Sanbjay Dutt is a very kind person and she praises his nature. She says,
“He was always loving, there’s no change for that. He’s kind, which was always there – that’s not changed. He has become a much superior actor also. There is a kind of inner strength which I see in him now”.
Manisha Koirala has been given a very small role in Sanjay Dutt’s biopic to which she performed beautifully. She plays the role of his mother Nargis Dutt which was performed extremely well and she doesn’t care if the role she has been offered is small or what, she’s happy to be a part of this film instead.
Talking about her role in the film, she says, “It so happened that we did one scene, then added another one. It is a small role. It’s a guest appearance. It was meant to be much smaller but after shooting with me, he said ‘ Let’s do that also. Can we do this also?’ to which I said, ‘More than happy.’ Then ultimately he asked if we could do a song and I said, ‘Sure sir. It’s a pleasure to work with you and it’s a pleasure to be a part of such a beautiful film.”
The statements above totally prove that how much Manisha Koirala respects the Khalnayak Sanjay Dutt and how much love she shares with him. She was also very glad to be a part of his biopic and did a great job over there as well. No doubt she has been a great actress in her peak times and has done some really amazing with Sanjay Dutt.
Of course, our Khalnayak has been a Casanova of the Bollywood film industry when he was at the top his career in 1990’s. There’s no surprise in the fact that many actresses had a crush on Sanjay Dutt and yes, Manisha Koirala was also one of them. Now she has also revealed that Sanjay Dutt himself asked him once about it.
