We have often talked about the sacrifices made by a mother for her kids, but we rarely acknowledge the pains taken by a father to secure his children’s future. Just like a mother, a father also plays a vital role in the upbringing of his kids. If a mother nurtures her kids and imbibes good values in them then it is the father, who acts as an inspiration to them, he is the one they look up to. For every kid, their father is their emotional anchor, the shoulder to cry upon. (Also Read: Sunny Leone Shares A Monochrome Picture Of Herself Snuggling Her Daughter, Nisha Kaur Weber)
Sanjay Dutt's life has always been a rollercoaster ride. He shared a very warm rapport with his late father, Sunil Dutt and has always made sure that his kids also enjoy the same rapport with him. The actor, who considers his wife, Maanyata as his pillar of strength, dotes on his three kids, Trishala, Iqra, and Shahraan. He has always been proud of his kid’s achievements and has made sure to support them in whatever they do. From enjoying his free time in the company of his kids to sharing adorable pictures of his family on his social media handles, Sanjay Dutt is a complete family man.
On January 17, 2020, Sanjay Dutt took to his Instagram handle and shared a proud moment with his fans. He posted a picture of his son, Shahraan sitting in a full-split position in his Karate uniform. Along with the picture, the proud father wrote, "He finally pulled off a "Full-split" after days of practice! My little Karate kid." On Sanjay’s post, his wife, Maanyata commented, "My Boy" followed by heart emoticons.
On October 21, 2019, Sanjay's children, Shahraan and Iqra had turned nine and the actor had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a lovely note for them. He had posted a monochrome picture with his twins, and had written, "There's no greater joy for me than spending time with my precious, Shahraan & Iqra. I love you both. Happy birthday. #ProudDad."

On June 29, 2018, when Sanjay Dutt's biopic, Sanju was released, his beautiful wifey, Maanyata, had posted a beautiful picture of her hubby along with her twins. The doting mommy, from behind the lens, had written a caption that will melt your heart, "Ruk jaana nahin tu kahin haar ke..... kaaton pe chalke milenge saaye bahaar ke #mysanju #bestesthalf #proudwife #sanjuthefilm #love #grace #positivity #dutts #mumbai #beautifullife #thankyougod".
We remember in an interview with the HT brunch, Sanjay Dutt had shared that he wanted to be a strict father when his wife, Manyata Dutt was pregnant but when he saw his kids, he realised he can never be that. The actor loves spoiling them and in the same interview, he had shared, "When Manyata was pregnant, I always thought I would be a damn strict dad. But with them, I just can’t be that! Although I do spoil them a bit, I make sure that when Manyata is scolding them, I don’t become the peace broker. I don’t interfere. It is wrong to play good cop/bad cop. But yes, after two-three hours, dad might get them a box of chocolates."
In the same interview, Sanjay had also shared how he is loving every moment of being a father and how he wants to inculcate good habits in them. He had revealed, "It is a great feeling to just see them grow up. It is amusing when they talk like grown-ups and try to act all mature…especially when they order their own food at restaurants! And they are so tech-savvy already! Although, thankfully their interaction with the iPad is still restricted to games. We don’t waste time with them. They go to school, then they go for swimming, they have their karate classes. I want Iqra to learn the piano, and Shahraan to play the guitar."
