It Has Taught Me A Lot And Made Me A Better Individual'- Sanjay Dutt On His Jail Time

Pallavi Manoj , 29 Jun 2018

Everyone knows that Sanjay Dutt led the most controversial life in B-Town, apart from being a celebrity kid and a youth sensation in Rocky, he also went through phases of drug addiction, and criminal charges. With all this, it’s no surprise that a movie is being made on the man, because, who wouldn’t want to know what exactly happened to him. Recently, the man himself opened up to IANS about one of the darkest periods of his life, the time he spent in jail.

Sanjay Dutt said,

My confinement days have been nothing less than a roller coaster ride. To look at the positive side, it has taught me a lot and made me a better individual.

He revealed how he bonded with people in jail and how they became family to him during his jail period.

Staying away from my family and my loved ones was a challenge. During those days, I learnt how to keep my body in perfect shape, used trash cans and mud pots in place of weights and dumbbells. We also used to have a cultural function every six months in jail where I taught convicts serving out life sentences to mouth dialogues, sing, dance and express themselves through skits. These people became my family during the hard times and came to encourage me when I was giving up.

We can’t help but wonder if this part of his life will be shown in the movie.

Sanju baba‘s life had derailed when he became a drug addict and turned from bad to worse when he was convicted for illegal possession of arms in a case related to 1993 Mumbai blasts in which over 250 people were killed and many were severely injured.

Sanjay Dutt was released after completing his prison sentence in 2016. In the interview, he also expressed how it was the happiest moment of his life and how he wished his father, Sunil Dutt was alive to see him free.

He further added,

The time I spent in jail made me realise a lot of things. It broke my ego.

We are super glad to finally have Sanjay back happy and healthy. While we can’t wait to see what Sanju baba on the celluloid again, his biopic, Sanju that released today is already on our watchlist.

We are so pumped for Sanju, are you?
