I want to be like my dad: Sanjay Dutt


By Hindustan Times

Actor-producer Sanjay Dutt says he wants to be like his father, late actor Sunil Dutt.

“I want to be like my father. Dutt saheb was a great support in our lives. I want to be exactly like him. But I would also tell my kids how was I during my childhood days and that, don’t be like me,” said Dutt, who went through drug addiction in his youth. The 52-year-old has three children — the eldest is daughter Trishala from his first wife Richa Sharma, who died of brain tumour many years ago. He has twins — Iqra and Shahraan — from his third wife Manyata, who he married in 2008.

Trishala grew up in the US, and as a result, Sanjay couldn’t spend much time with her. He is trying to make up for it by spending quality time with his twins. “I couldn’t enjoy fatherhood with Trishala. I have missed all those golden moments. So now it’s a wonderful experience for me,” said Dutt, who feels an actor doesn’t carve a niche for himself because of his legacy.

“An actor doesn’t make a mark in the showbiz because of parents. Dutt saheb had launched me (with Rocky in 1981), but later you have to prove yourself,” he said.
