The story of Sanjay Dutt is not so much about a star-son’s public tryst with the law but of a man’s never-ending battle with the demons of his mind—and the consequences of his reckless choices. On the star's birthday, read about his journey in his biography by Ram Kamal Mukherjee's 'Sanjay Dutt: One Man, Many Lives' @duttsanjay #sanjaydutt #happybirthdaysanjaydutt #actor #cinema @cinestaan @ramkamalmukherjee #stardust @filmfare
However, there is one question that dominates: who is the real Sanjay duty? Is he a man who has been ‘wronged by the media’, as his friend and filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani wants everyone to believe? Is he a son who could never recover from his mother’s death? Is he a son whose father political leanings made him an easy target? Or is he a myth, created by a consortium of film journalists, industry insiders, political fiends, and adversaries? Delving deep into both the man and his circumstances, Sanjay Dutt: one man, many lives tells the Uncut, untold and uncensored story of Sanjay Balraj Dutt. What emerges is an accountant much about one man’s laudable efforts to keep reinventing himself, as it is about his privileges. Privileges that were seldom earned and always taken for granted. This is the closest anyone can ever come to understanding Sanju Baba.
