Later actor Sunil Dutt, the father of actor Sanjay Dutt, had passed away days before his own birthday on May 25, 2005. He was to ring his 76th birthday in a few days. Today is Sunil Dutt’s 92nd birth anniversary and did you know that just hours before his demise, Sunil had written a letter to Paresh Rawal who later went on to play the late actor in the movie Sanju.

Back in 2018, when Sanju had hit the theatres, Paresh had shared that the letter by Sunil bore his letterhead as a Member of Parliament, read, “Dear Paresh Ji! As your birthday falls on 30th May, let me wish you all the happiness, prosperity and good luck in life. May God shower his choicest blessings on you and your family.”

Paresh had revealed to The Indian Express that when he got the news of Sunil Dutt’s death he called his wife and said that he will be home late, “She then told me that there is a letter for you from him (Sunil Dutt). I asked her what the letter was and she said it is for wishing you a happy birthday. I told her that my birthday is on May 30, which is five days away but she said the letter is for you and she even read it to me. I was so surprised. Why would Dutt Sahab send me a birthday letter five days before my birthday? And we have never exchanged any Holiday greetings in the past – be it Diwali or Christmas – so why would he write to me?”
