“Not all superheroes wear capes.” Whenever I hear this quote, the only person I remember is my father. My father has played a very important role in my life and is the reason I am here today. On the occasion of Father’s Day, while many celebrities have been sharing pictures of their fathers and the role they play in their life, I thought of reaching out to Sanjay Dutt. On numerous occasions, Sanjay has been vocal about what his father, the late Sunil Dutt, meant for him and how he misses his presence.
My father was my role model since for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was young, I knew that when I become a father, I want to be just like him. He was a mixture of all things right, he was kind, loving, and even strict at times when he needed to be. He always supported me and even today, it always feels like he has my back. Everyday, I aspire to be more like him.
Even today, when I watch Munnabhai M.B.B.S., I get teary-eyed seeing the Dutts’ father-son chemistry, so I can only imagine what it must have been in real life. Sanjay’s dialogue from the film, “Agar do logon mein connection ho na, feelings ho na … toh dil ki awaaz dil se sun sakte hai,” is so apt for the Dutts. We miss you Dutt saab and I’m sure that he would be super proud of the amazing father that Sanjay is, just like all of us are. Here’s wishing you’ll a very Happy Father’s Day!
