Sanjay Dutt was extremely close to his father, late Bollywood actor and politician, Sunil Dutt and when he passed away, Sanjay was left distraught. However, things changed for Sanjay after he got married to Maanayata Dutt as she became his ‘support system’.
Talking about his producer wife, Sanajy said, “I’m proud and fortunate to have a wife like her. Her focus has always been home, husband, kids and her work. I’ve never interfered in her trading, knowing she has business acumen. After my father passed away, Maanayata has been my support system. She never let me fall, she was always there to pick me up.”
Maanayata Dutt echoed his emotions as she stated, “For all those who say I am his anchor, I say, he is the sail I set up to protect myself from storms. He’s always stood strong for the kids and me. Even when he was inside, he was worried for us.”
Sanjay and Maanayata got married in 2008 and the couple is proud parents to twins Shahran and Iqra. Maanayata is producing Sanjay’s next Prassthanam, which will hit the theaters on September 20.
Remake of Deva Katta’s 2010 eponymous Telugu film, Prasthanam also stars Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Manisha Koirala, Ali Fazal, Amyra Dastur and Satyajeet Dubey.
