Anushka Sharma, who was last seen in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, plays a journalist who famously asks Ranbir (Sanjay Dutt) how many girlfriends he had, and he answers 350, minus sex workers!
Last, but not the least, Manisha Koirala plays Sanjay Dutt’s late mother, actress Nargis. The song ‘Do Dil Hote‘ is based on their relationship and her role:
In this 2-hour-42-minute long biopic, his two wives and eldest daughter didn’t feature at all! Let’s start with Richa Sharma, who met Sanjay in 1985 while she was an aspiring bollywood actress.
They got married in 1987 and Richa gave up her Bollywood dreams, just like Sanjay’s mother Nargis did for Sunil.
However, fate was cruel and Richa got cancer in the US, a little over a year of marriage. Sanjay returned to India due to films, leaving behind his first born – daughter Trishala Dutt, in New York with her grand-parents.
In 1992, a cancer-free Richa returned to Mumbai with Trishala, but Sanjay had already moved on with actress and co-star Madhuri Dixit!
Richa later died in 1996 due to brain cancer but not before she filed for divorce. Her daughter Trishala shared this post for her beautiful late mother:
Then, Sanjay found love in model and lifestyle coach Rhea Pillai while he was out on bail. This marriage too, didn’t last long, and Sanjay and Rhea divorced in 2005.
Rhea is now happily married India’s tennis legend Leander Paes but shared this image with Sunil Dutt of the infamous riots.
In 2007, Trishala famously wrote an open letter Sanjay, requesting him to not marry anyone after reports of him marrying Maanayata Dutt came in news.
But his daughter’s requests fell on deaf ears as Sanjay Dutt not only married Maanayata, but has two children from her as well:
And this picture is proof that Trishala has accepted her step-sister and forgiven her dad for betraying her late mother:
Sanjay Dutt will next be seen in the third instalment of Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster. Actor Jimmy Shergil, Mahi Gill and Chitrangada Singh will star in this film along with him.
