The Hush Post: A few days after the release of Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju, a video has emerged where Nargis Dutt offers words of advice to Sanjay Dutt. The film already narrates the bond that he shared with his parents, his drug addiction, and about his alleged involvement in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts.
Sanjay Dutt’s mother, Nargis Dutt, died of pancreatic cancer in 1981. She died three days before Sanjay’s Bollywood debut with the film Rocky. In the film, it was shown that Nargis used to record audio messages for her son, while her treatment was taking place in New York.
As per this video which emerged first in 1991 and has now gone viral on the internet, Sanjay is seen talking about his mother’s death on a talk show, and he even plays the last message Nargis had recorded for him from her deathbed.
In the video, a young Sanjay can be seen saying, “When my mother died I did not cry, I had no emotions.” He further says that after two years a friend of his played the tape, and on hearing that, he burst out in tears and cried for 4-5 hours.
In the audio recording, Nargis can be heard saying, “More than anything, Sanju, keep your humility. Keep your character. Never show-off. Always be humble and always respect elders. That is the thing that is going to take you far, and that is going to give you strength in your work.”
The film Sanju too refers about Nargis Dutt’s last message to Sanjay helping him cope up with his drug addiction and come out of it. However, the message shown in the film was completely different from the original one.
Sanju starred Ranbir Kapoor in the shoes of Sanjay Dutt. The film is directed by Raj Kumar Hirani and has broken many records since the day of its release. Sanju became the highest first day grosser of 2018 and is now closing in on the Rs 300 crore mark.
