As ‘Vaastav’ clocks 20 years, Sanjay Dutt says, “The film gave me real sense of being an actor”
‘Vaastav’ is undoubtedly one of the best works of Sanjay Dutt in his entire career. Written and directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, the action-crime drama also had Namrata Shirodkar, Sanjay Narvekar, Mohnish Behl, Paresh Rawal and Reema Lagoo in pivotal roles. The movie completed 20 years on October 7. On the completion of two decades of the movie, Sanjay Dutt turned emotional and shared a video clip from his movie on his Twitter handle. He captioned it as “Celebrating 20 years of #Vaastav, a film which gave me the real sense of being an actor (sic).”
In the video, Raghu (Sanjay Dutt) is seen telling his mother (Reema Lagoo), “Ye dekhreli hai. Asli hai asli. Pachas tola, pachas tola. Kitna? Pachas tola.”

This is one of the most iconic dialogues of the movie. Not only the dialogues but also the songs of the movie were superhits.
Sanjay Dutt’s performance was raved by the critics and audiences as well. For his stellar performance, he received the first Best Actor Filmfare Award. In 2002, the sequel ‘Hathyar’ was released but it was not as hit as ‘Vaastav’.
On the professional front, Sanjay Dutt was last seen in ‘Prassthanam’. He will be next seen in ‘Shamshera’, ‘Panipat’, ‘Bhuj: The Pride of India’, ‘Sadak 2’, and ‘KGF 2’.
