Mothers and daughters are each other’s first best friends. The relationship shared between a mother and a daughter is like no other association in this world. No matter what, it is a soul connection that would take both the mother and the daughter through a lifetime of happy times and tears. Such sacred is the relationship between celebrity mother-daughter duo, Sanjay Dutt’s wife, Maanayata Dutt and their little angel, Iqra Dutt.
Maanyata Dutt and Sanjay Dutt were pronounced husband and wife to each other on February 7, 2008, in a private wedding in Goa. Two years after their wedding, the couple entered the parents’ club as they welcomed twins- a baby girl, Iqra and a baby boy, Shahraan, on October 21, 2010. Every now and then, Maanayata keeps sharing pictures on her social media handle.

On June 24, 2019, Maanayata Dutt herself took to her official Instagram handle and shared a lovely picture with her darling daughter. In the picture, we can see her twinning with the little angel as they both wear sweaters and skirts while doing some shopping abroad. Below is the picture that we are talking about, and along with the same, she wrote, “Stay together. Grow together. Happiness is you.” Here, take a look at the picture:
Long back in 2009, Maanayata had given an interview to the IANS when Sanjay was behind the bars. During the course of the conversation, Maanayata was asked about how she feels when people accused her of ‘taking over’ Sanjay’s life. To this, she had said, “I know, but what I want to say is that I've the right to live with my husband the way I want to. It doesn't matter whether it's a prostitute or a princess, a wife has certain rights in her husband's home. I'm not a man living in a woman's house."
In the same interaction, she also shared Sanjay’s views when she changed her surname to ‘Dutt’ post their wedding. Maanayata was quoted as saying, “That's his personal opinion. Sanju would've been offended and insulted if I had continued using my father's name. If other wives want to use their maiden names, it's their choice. He feels it is a fashion to do so these days. He has the right to an opinion." She further added, “Having married a man who takes care of all my needs, I'd like to accept his name with full honour and take charge of his home and accept his family as my family. If you can't accept your husband's name and family, then why marry?” (Also Read: Dipika Kakar And Shoaib Ibrahim Celebrate His Parents' Wedding Anniversary, Pics And Video Inside)
Moreover, Sanjay and Maanayata had both tried their level best to make his sisters, Namrata Dutt and Priya Dutt accept her. Speaking about the same, the actor’s wife had retorted, “Sanju knows I've tried to do as much in my capacity to find acceptance with his sisters. Beyond that he wouldn't like me to push myself to try any further. Neither would I.”
Further revealing that there were many people around Sanjay who were messing up with his finances, Maanayata had remarked, “Sanjay never understood the nitty-gritty of finances. And if he hasn't accumulated a huge bank balance, it isn't because he hasn't earned money. He did, but he lost all of it. There were too many people around him trying to use him. I came like a barricade in Sanju's life to stand between him and those who want to use him. Naturally, these fair-weather friends resent me. I spoilt their party, you see”.

And now, it is Sanjay’s dear wifey who takes care of his finances. Talking about the same, she had quipped, “We decided he'd produce his own films to make sure the downside doesn't take him by surprise. Let's face it. Sanju is a superstar, but he isn't Amitabh Bachchan. Even Amitji went through a downslide. Every actor goes through it and then he reappears in smaller roles. I don't want that to happen to Sanju. As it is, he hasn't secured his bank balance. We jointly decided to start our production house, so we could generate the kind of work that Sanju deserves. I look after the finances of the production house, Sanju looks after the creative aspects.” (Also Read: Sunaina Roshan's Rumoured Boyfriend, Ruhail Amin Lashes Out At The Roshans, Says This Is Unfortunate)
