Why did Manyata Dutt not meet Sanjay Dutt on his birthday?

Apparently Mrs Dutt couldn’t manage to get the required permission from the Yerawada jail authorities to meet her husband on his special day, but she did so something very special to show off her love for Sanju…

Manyata Dutt may forever regret not making it to Pune’s Yerawada jail yesterday (July 29), the day that her dearest husband Sanjay Dutt turned 54 years old. Since Sanjay’s sister Priya Dutt had visited him only recently, Mrs Dutt couldn’t get the permission she needed and not allowed to meet her miyaan; jail authorities have ruled that family visits are allowed only once a month. Unfortunately, apna birthday boy, who had been anxiously waiting to see his wife and kids, was left disappointed and spent his special janam din alone this year.

Close buddies Ram Charan Teja and director Apoorva Lakhia, who worked with Sanjay in the Zanjeer remake, moved the court to seek prior permission for a visit, but to no avail. But the convicted actor’s B-town friends made sure that Sanju baba didn’t feel lonely on his special day. We are told that director Rajkumar Hirani, Ranbir Kapoor and Bunty Walia have written letters to him that were delivered on time. And the 54-year-old actor wrote a poem for Manyata on her birthday (July 22); we hear that she too managed to pen some verse and writes letters every day to her husband. Best of all, our friends hovering around the lady told us that she has gotten herself a very special tattoo on her ring finger, script that reads ‘Sanjay’. Nice, no!

Since Sanju baba couldn’t meet his dear ones on his birthday, we wonder if the actor sang few lines of the song – ‘Pal pal har pal, kaise katega pal har pal’ from Lagey Raho Munnabhai to get into a more cheerful mood. What say, peeps?
