Everyone knows that there was a phase in Sanjay Dutt's life when the entire world had turned their back against him, and it was his father, Sunil Dutt, who always stood like a pillar of strength for him. It was only Sunil ji, who had taken his son, Sanju out of his drug addiction and had helped him fight with the other demons of his life. On June 6, 2020, Sanjay Dutt had taken a trip down the memory lane on his father's 91st birth anniversary and had shared a picture of his late father from his archives. He had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a throwback picture of himself with Sunil ji. Along with the picture, Sanjay had penned down an emotional birthday note for him, and it could be read as "You have always been my source of strength and happiness. Happy Birthday, Dad!" followed by a heart emoticon. Sanjay's daughter, Trishala Dutt had commented on his post and had written, "Happy Birthday Dadaji". Sanjay's wife, Maanyata Dutt, had also reacted with a couple of heart emoticons.
However, Sanjay Dutt was more close to his mother, Nargis Dutt, who had left for the heavenly abode, just three days before the release of her son's debut movie, Rocky in the year 1981. In a 2018 interview with India Today, Sanjay had talked about the things he had learned from his mother, Nargis, and had stated, "The most important thing is to be a good human being. Everything else comes after that. I learned from both my father and mother. I'm passing on to my kids. I hope my wife doesn't pamper my children the way my mother did me. My wife tells me if the kids don't hate the parents when they are growing up, there is something wrong in their parenting. I am tough to my children when I want to be tough."
