The ‘khalnayak’ of B-town turns 53 today
Sanjay Dutt was born to Sunil Dutt and Nargis on July 29, 1959. And today Sanju baba plans to celebrate his birthday with a small iftar party. “As of now there’s no bash planned, but a small get-together with family and friends is on the cards for Baba,” a birdie revealed. The actor is currently staying with his third wife, Maanyata Dutt and twins – boy Shahraan and girl Iqra.
Sanjay Dutt debuted in Bollywood as a child artist in Reshma Aur Shera (1972). It was at the age of 22 years that he played the role of a hero in Rocky. But it was only ten years later with Saajan that Sanjay actually started getting noticed as a bankable star although he had done films like Naam (1986). For the first time he was nominated for the Filmfare Award for the Best Actor for Saajan (1991). Post that, Sanju baba went on to change the parameters of a villain with his role as a khalnayak in the movie Khalnayak (1993). Six years after that he won the Filmfare Award for the Best Actor for Vaastav: The Reality (1999).
In the year 2003, Sanjay Dutt was again applauded for his role as Munna bhai (Murli Prasad Sharma) in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S (2003). Post that Sanjay kept shifting between light-hearted romantic roles, comic ones and the roles of an action hero with movies such as Mission Kashmir (2000), Parineeta (2005), Dus (2005), Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007), EMI – Liya Hai Toh Chukana Padega (2008) and Double Dhamaal (2011).
But recently he again gave an applaud-worthy performance in Hrithik Roshan starrer Agneepath (2012) as the evil villain Kancha. Hmmm, looks like the negative roles really suit Sanju baba very well, no?
What’s more, Sanjay Dutt’s upcoming movies include Son Of Sardaar, Zilla Ghaziabad and Race 2.
So on your 53rd birthday we wish you a happy and fun filled birthday with your tiny twins, dear Sanju. And hope that you get even more evil with your roles as the years progress. All the best for your upcoming movies and happy birthday, Mr Khalnayak!
