Ever since the biopic of Sanjay Dutt was announced, Madhuri Dixit was the one to look out for. The 49-year-old actress supposedly spent many sleepless nights because of the biopic as she did not want her love affair to be shown in the film but did the matter hold any truth to it?
THE ACTUAL WORDS
On being asked about the biopic & her past with Dutt, Madhuri said:
FOR WHERE I AM TODAY, THIS [THE TOPIC OF DUTT] HAS BECOME REDUNDANT. LIFE HAS COME A LONG WAY SINCE THEN. I DON’T KNOW WHERE THESE REPORTS ARE COMING FROM. IN ANY CASE, IT DOESN’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO ME.
Madhuri & Sanjay were the hot topics for the media to talk about in the early 90’s. The affair started during the filming of Saajan in 1990. Dutt was married to Richa Sharma when the affair with Madhuri started. Thus Sanjay’s father Sunil Dutt had objections regarding his son’s relationship with Madhuri, but despite that, the relationship continued.
Both of them were at the peak of their careers when they were linked together. However, when Dutt was arrested in 1993, the relationship ended. Madhuri never visited the jail to meet him. After Dutt had been arrested, Madhuri Dixit announced to the media that she had nothing to do with Sanjay Dutt and they were not dating. Later on, Dutt got married twice while Madhuri went to the USA after marrying Dr. Shriram Madhav Nene.
It has been rumored that when Madhuri came to know about the biopic, she contacted Rajkumar Hirani & asked him to remove her reference from the movie.
Ranbir Kapoor will be playing the role of Sanjay Dutt in the untitled biopic. As far as the Madhuri Dixit reference is concerned, we can’t say anything on that until the movie is released.
