Sanjay Dutt, Aruna Irani

Aruna Irani recently opened up about the polar opposite roles she played with Sanjay Dutt in the movies. In one of the movies, Aruna was seen playing his mother and in another titled ‘Johnny I Love You’ she was seen seducing Sanjay.

Sanjay Dutt is 13 years younger than Aruna. The actor made his acting debut in Bollywood with the movie Rocky in 1981 and Irani also starred in the film. Talking about these vastly different roles, Aruna told TOI that she can’t seem to comprehend how people at that time seemed to accept an actor in these roles.


Aruna said, “I had worked with a majority of film actors and there is no specific actor whom I would like to name, as everyone was extremely nice to work with. I even enjoyed working with Sanju (Sanjay Dutt). I played his mother in his debut film and seduced him in his next film (laughs). I still don’t understand how people used to accept it in those times and even now.”

Meanwhile, talking about his debut film Rocky, Sanjay had tweeted a few years ago saying, “A film which gave me a real sense of being an actor is Rocky. Today marks 37 years of it and when I look back, my heart fills with gratitude for all the love and appreciation I have received over the years.”
