'Maanayata is the reason I am back'
Sanjay Dutt credits the success of his recent films to his wife and why he will be a disaster as a producer
Sanjay Dutt seems to be a very content man. After all, the actor is sitting pretty on two back-to-back successful films Agneepath and Son of Sardaar and radiates a sense of satisfaction in the way he looks and speaks. A newfound disciplined life, multiple films and watching his kids growing up, Dutt is all smiles and credits wife Maanayata for his success. “I always said that I was content and happy if my films did well but this is the most amazing feeling. I owe it all to her.”
Speaking about his production house that will be helmed by his wife, Dutt says, “We are starting three or four films and let’s see how it goes. But I will not be the producer as I think that will be a disaster. I can’t say no to anyone and people love me for my large heartedness. All these qualities do not work as a producer and yeh sab control karne ke liye koi chahiye and isi liye biwi producer hai.”
Besides his busy schedule, the actor is extremely happy playing the doting father to his twins Shahraan and Iqra. He says, “I have found this newfound spirit from my wife to do well. She is the most important person in my life. I had once given up on my career and myself and she is the reason why I am back with a bang. Just to see my kids as toddlers, then crawling, walking and now talking is unbelievable.”
Speaking fondly of his teenaged daughter Trishala, Dutt says, “I missed all these moments with Trishala. I wish I had spent some time with her during her growing-up years but I guess God has been kind to me.”
