Sanjay Dutt, the son of actor-director, Sunil Dutt and actress, Nargis, is a celebrated big actor in Bollywood, and over the years, he has been giving us one after another hit movies. From Sadak to Vaastav to Sajan to Naam to Khalnayak to Munna Bhai MBBS to Agneepath to Panipat, the actor has shown a wide spectrum of his acting prowess. Sanjay Dutt had started his journey as an actor with the film, Rocky, opposite Tina Munim directed by Sunil Dutt. Even though Sanjay's father had launched him in Hindi cinema, he had never got the VIP treatment, as the actor recalled.
Recently, Sanjay Dutt had appeared in the dance reality show Super Dancer Chapter 4 and had shared some interesting and exciting facts about his debut movie. He even talked about his early days in showbiz, after stepping into Bollywood. Recalling those days, he had mentioned that, once his father, Sunil Dutt, had yelled at him in front of everyone for taking a lunch break during the shooting of Rocky.
Narrating the story, he had said, “Working on Rocky was a hard task and especially because my father was the director. We didn’t use to have a lunch break. Once his assistant, Farooq Bhai came and told me that we don’t have a lunch break but I could go and have something. While I was eating the food dad was ready with the shot and asked where I was. Farooq Bhai told him I had gone for lunch and my dad got angry and told him to call me right away. He started shouting at me, asking ‘Who told you to go have lunch, did I say it is a break?’ and all the stuff. He said, ‘Don’t think you are Sunil Dutt’s son'.”
Further adding to the same, the Khalnayak actor had said, "I used to call him 'sir' on the sets, so I told him it was Farooq sir who told me to and then when he asked Farooq Bhai, he denied it. He started saying that kids don't even ask for permission; they just want to get on with their stuff. He started saying that you should have asked Sunil sir before eating, who told you to eat without permission and in my head, I was like you told me to eat."
The actor was recently seen in the film, Bhuj: The Pride of India, featuring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, and Nora Fatehi, which is currently streaming on the OTT platform.
