    Trishala Dutt's mother, Richa Sharma, married Sanjay Dutt in 1987. Richa Sharma, known for her roles in films like Hum Naujawan, Anubhav, and Sadak Chhap, passed away way too young at the age of 32. Richa Sharma was married to Sanjay Dutt for nine years and was diagnosed with a brain tumour within two years of marriage. She passed away in 1996.

    Trishala Dutt has a huge fan following on Instagram. But don't expect a female Dutt to hit the silver screen. EVER. And that's just family tradition, by the way. It's nothing personal. Trishala Dutt was quoted in 2010 in a magazine as saying: "My dad has never said 'no' to me for Bollywood. Yes, I know he would not approve. But he does have a soft spot for me, so I think it will be okay later on." But later her dad, Sanjay, categorically said, "It's news to me. She hasn't discussed her future plans with me. Anyway, my dad would have been completely against her becoming an actress!"

    A decade ago, Sanjay Dutt had mentioned that he won't encourage Trishala Dutt to become an actress. "I am not supportive of her becoming an actress," he said, adding, "In the Dutt family line, women have never been actresses - including my sisters Namrata and Priya. My mom (Nargis) gave up acting when she got married and was a devoted mother and housewife and so was Richa (his first wife)."

  • 8/39

    A source close to Sanjay Dutt had even spilt the beans, saying, "Sanju is very clear about Trishala not joining films. He says his dad never allowed daughters Priya and Namrata to become actresses. The late Dutt Sr's wife Nargis was a great actress but once she became a Dutt she left her career at her peak. The same thing happened with Trishala's mother Richa. Whatever little career she had, she had to give up once she became Mrs Dutt. Sanju never allowed Maanayata to pursue an acting career even when they were dating."

    Namrata Dutt's daughters Sanchi and Sia don't harbour filmi aspirations either. The Dutts have always been very conscious about this and the rule has been laid down for the Dutt women right from the beginning "No acting career". It is said that Sanjay Dutt had even told Maanayata Dutt that if they have a daughter, she has to know right from the beginning that an acting career is not an option.

    Not that Sanjay Dutt is against the industry. He attributes this thought to a rule laid down by his father, the late Sunil Dutt. In the past, he had said, "Dad never wanted any of our family girls to be in the film industry, so it's the same with my sisters and their daughters. I want to keep that going."

    About his plans for Trishala, Sanjay Dutt was quoted saying, "If she has worked hard to pass with good grades and worked with the FBI, then she must further her career in it." 

  • 12/39

    Recalling Trishala Dutt's decision to study criminal law, Sanjay Dutt had said, "Back then, she had said that the reason she wanted to study criminal law was that she didn't want innocent people like me to suffer. I was very touched by that thought. Besides, it's a big thing to work with the FBI."

    When Sanjay Dutt was in jail, Trishala had told the press, "His fans must watch out when he comes back because he's going to be back with a bang. He is someone you can't break."
