Sanjay Dutt: Missed family in jail

Actor Sanjay Dutt, who was released from the Yerwada Central Jail in Pune last year, says he missed every moment of being with the people from the film industry, whom he fondly calls his family.

Asked how has he evolved over the years, Sanjay, who made his debut in Bollywood in 1981 with the film “Rocky”, said here: “My experience with the industry has been fantastic…it has been 40 years…when I was in jail, I missed the moment of being with my family. This is my family — the industry.”

The 57-year-old was arrested for illegal possession of arms in a case related to the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, in which over 250 people were killed and several hundred were wounded.

Sanjay is making a comeback to the silver screen with Omung Kumar’s directorial “Bhoomi”, which revolves around a father-daughter relationship.

Talking about his comeback, the actor, who has three children, said: “When I reached the ‘Bhoomi’ sets, I was back with a bang.”

Actor Sanjay Dutt says he shares a beautiful relationship with his three children – Trishala, Iqra and Shahraan.

The actor will be making his comeback on the silver screen after three years with the National Award-winning director Omung Kumar’s “Bhoomi”, which revolves around a father- daughter relationship.

How is his relationship with his children?

“I share a very beautiful relationship with them. But I am not their friend, I am their father,” Sanjay replied to the question asked by IANS here.

“My father (late actor Sunil Dutt) used to say to me this and I also follow that in my life with my kids,” he added.
