Sanjay Dutt Instagram

Sanjay Dutt’s life story is no less than a Bollywood film, replete with interesting twists and turns. Probably that’s why Rajkumar Hirani took cue and decided to convert it into a movie, starring Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay. From his tryst with drugs to being accused in the 1993 blasts, to his term in jail, Sanjay has seen it all. But so did his parents, legendary actors Sunil Dutt and Nargis, who were a part of his struggle always, till their last time.

And today, Sanjay has posted a picture of himself with them, as he misses their presence and guidance in his life.

He posted a picture on social media, with the caption, “They made me what I am today!! Miss you Mom and Dad ❤ #throwbackthursday”


Well, we too miss them. Late Sunil Dutt and Nargis were exemplary actors whose presence on screen certified an experience with finesse aplomb. Not just that, their love story too was a beautiful one, as they met on the sets of ‘Mother India’, where coincidentally they played mother and son. Sunil rescued Nargis off a deadly fire, and her heart, bruised by the showman Raj Kapoor, fell hard and fast for this prince. Their love story has also been documented in a beautiful book called ‘Darlingji’ by Kishwer Merchant. The two used to address each other with this nickname, endearingly.

Sanjay was born to the couple in the year 1959. He was the eldest of the three children the Dutts had, followed by sisters Namrata and Priya, who chose to not enter the entertainment industry. While Nargis succumbed to pancreatic cancer in the year 1981, Sunil Dutt lived a ripe old life, and died of a heart attack, in the year 2005.

Today, as Sanjay posts this picture, it surely sends one back in time, amidst bouts of nostalgia. There surely won’t be actors such as Sunil Dutt and Nargis, nor will be a love story as beautiful.
