The Hindu December 8, 2000: Like a phoenix he rises again

The Hindu, December 8, 2000

Like a phoenix he rises again

Sanjay Dutt has carved out a special niche, as a valuable box office offer and as a creditable performer.

At the unlikely age of 40 plus, Sanjay Dutt rediscovered an unusual commercial niche, a niche that also earned him his share of critical acclaim. The latest in Sanjay's series of notable performances is his role as a policeman in Kurukshetra, with Dutt standing on the right-hand side of the law for "cultural" variety. Under the care of the new screenwriter and director Mahesh Manjrekar, Sanjay Dutt performs this remarkable metamorphosis in Kurukshetra.

It was Mahesh Manjrekar's Vaastav with whom Sanjay Dutt vehemently embarked on the comeback path. An actor matures with any form of exposure. And Sanjay Dutt has (in this his "second attempt"), as you can easily see, gained - not only in male stature, but also in mental strength through every single test in his eventful life.

As an actor coming of age in the best Hollywood tradition, Sanjay Dutt is about to fulfill the promise that an actor with the sensitivity of Naseeruddin Shah discovered long ago in Dutt: “This boy is different from the other newcomers of today. Sanjay's eyes can reflect real pain in a way that no other young actor can. This is because Sanjay has had so many experiences in his life, experiences that have made him a good actor already. A good actor is one who can expand his range of expression through the various personal experiences in his life. This painful look gives Sanjay both vulnerability and raw strength on screen. "

And yet “the return of the native” (because that's what Sanjay's powerful comeback stands for) only came about after the actor had worked single-mindedly and with unshakable concentration for his career for a long time. Two Maheshs played key roles in developing the amazing transformation in the career of this now honed actor: Mahesh (Sadak) Bhatt yesterday, Mahesh (Kurukshetra) Manjrekar today.

Mahesh (Naam) Bhatt, as Sanjay's early mentor, brought out the best in this actor's soulful side. While in the case of the other Mahesh Sanjay Dutt, Vaastav found ultimate recognition in the grandiose Manjrekar breakthrough after almost two decades in his job. That recognition came in the form of the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance of a simple young man forced to go on the wrong side of the law - a performance of the highest quality.

Of course, it's not that Sanjay Dutt (consider his parentage) didn't do a good job before Vaastav - and not just as a Khalnayak either. Sanjay's previous films (such as Naam and Sadak) got him a lot of positive attention as a headstrong or malevolent young man who gets into the world of crime and pays heavily for it. The character traits of his characters almost corresponded to his real image in that traumatic phase of his life. Both Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt perfectly shaped (in Naam) the good and bad side of human nature and reminded the audience of their fathers, the actors Rajendra Kumar and Sunil Dutt, in Mother India, even if the environment was very different was as in the mehboob classic from 1957.

However, Sanjay Dutt could not always get hold of the kind of roles that best suited his talent or that would have taken him further as a performer. Most of the time, his producers expediently relied on Sanjay Dutt's strong image as an action hero. Still, Sanjay could certainly be proud of his accomplishments in films like Sadak and Saajan. In Saajan, Sanjay drew the gentle, soulful figure of a handicapped and introverted poet who enables his best friend (Salman Khan) to steal his great love (Madhuri Dixit) from him and almost loses it to the young man. All three main actors delivered natural and natural performances in Saajan under the competent direction of Lawrence D’Souza.

Saajan established Sanjay Dutt as the conventional gentle film hero after the unconventional film Naam ended its long streak of bad luck following its hit debut as Rocky (1981). A series of films followed that did little more than boldly ride his wave of happiness. Back then, as an actor, Sanjay Dutt was always the better of his contemporaries. Unfortunately, this was also the time when Sanjay's life beyond the screen was more in the spotlight than his on-screen performances.

When Sanjay Dutt finally appeared as Khalnayak in Subhash Ghai's film of the same name, the role of the mischievous villain who refuses to open a new chapter in the book of his life seemed to have been taken out of his life. As Khalnayak, he again starred alongside Madhuri Dixit in a film that showed his profound insight into his role. This was due not only to the fact that Subhash Ghai is a director who always encourages his actors to perform well, but also to the hard work that Sanjay put into this project.

Probably no other star has gone through such different and difficult times as Sanjay. Sanjay's life was an open book that anyone could interpret as they wanted. No other star could have continued his career while admittedly a drug addict - Sanjay did it. He demonstrated his strength of character in the way he tackled this deadly addiction. However, just at the moment when his career curve finally seemed to be on the way up after everything he had been through, the TADA case threw Sanjay Dutt's career back by at least five years.

But Sanjay was always fortunate to have a loving and helpful family - who admired him wholeheartedly as one who had always fought his fights himself. Not only did his father, the politician and actor Sunil Dutt, stand firm with him, Sanjay's steadfast girlfriend and current wife Rhea Pillai was also a tremendous moral support for him. His imprisonment and personal tragedies - like the untimely death of his first wife Richa Sharma and the deprivation of his only daughter - have only made Sanjay mature even more. And if the offers fell into his lap at first, Sanjay now worked on his comeback like never before, directing all his concentration on his career and leaving his past behind.

The Filmfare Best Actor Award for Vaastav came for Sanjay Dutt at exactly the right age and phase in his life. It came at a time when Sanjay had learned to appreciate and appreciate the recognition that genuine effort brings. And today he is finally getting more and more roles that match his personality. Sanjay has revived his role as a performer and star - with a market value all of its own - but he no longer blatantly takes it for granted.

While Sanjay used to find dancing on the screen to be a strenuous act of strength, today it is a pleasure to watch him let himself go in front of the camera - as it should be with a good actor. Just look at his easy gait and whole posture in David Dhawan's Chal Mere Bhai - next to such a show stealer and exhibitionist like Salman Khan. You'd have thought that this kind of comedy wasn't Sanjay's thing, since he's more at home in the action scene. And yet the actor in Sanjay has not the slightest disadvantage compared to Salman in Chal Mere Bhai. He feels so comfortable with Salman and Karisma (even with all the dances) that the way he has developed as an actor is tantamount to a revelation.

Sanjay Dutt is now made for such difficult roles as in his most recent films, e.g. Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Mission Kashmir, in which he effortlessly embodies the role of a terrorist *. One must not forget that he can be seen here at the side of the latest millionaire favorite Hrithik Roshan. Even if he admits that the boy is young, this does not mean the slightest disadvantage for Sanjay, since he is able to strongly oppose it. And so he can also be seen to his advantage in Mahesh Manjrekar's Kurukshetra - in the central role of an honorable police officer. Even the audience who criticized the film itself couldn't ignore Sanjay Dutt's outstanding performance in Kurukshetra.

Today Sanjay Dutt has established his own screen personality so different from any of the other currently popular stars; he is a crowd puller with his very own and individual method of attracting people - namely with strong and convincing performances. Sanjay is not afraid to play roles on screen that are his age, and it is through this creditable arrangement with reality that Dutt has won, not lost. In this way, Sanjay Dutt sets a good example for his older colleagues on the scene; older colleagues who are still struggling because they shy away from being seen in roles into which they have long since grown in age. By accepting life as it is, calmly and calmly, Sanjay was able to keep his career options open. He is no longer the confused youth of yore - he is sure of himself as well as of his goals. Here we really have a star actor who is not interested in manipulating his career - Sanjay is not here to take anything away from anyone or to replace someone. He is happy to be where the hard experiences of his life and his concentrated efforts have taken him - and still as a "best seller".

(Girja Rajendran; German from Diwali)

* Note d. Translator: Sanjay Dutt does not play a terrorist in Mission Kashmir, but an SSP who fights terrorists. The author has either confused Sanjay's role with that of Jackie Shroff or Hrithik Roshan, or she refers to the scene in which Inayat Khan (SD) with a balaclava has little Altaaf's family butchered and counted this as a terrorist act. However, the formulation that Sanjay Dutt is playing a terrorist in MK is incorrect.

"Gunda Rap": Sanjay and Anand Raj Anand planning a music album

Quelle in English

A few months ago it was speculated that Sanju would one day release his own album as a singer. Now Anand has come up with a concept for an album "Gunda Rap" that Sanju liked. In principle, they all agree that they want to make the project a reality; now Anand (who is good friends with Sanju and has already made film songs for him like "Rama Re" and "Aim Kaim") is working on the details.

Anand: "Sanju has a unique way of understanding a melody and then singing it in his own style. There is a unique simplicity in his voice and that is reflected in his songs. I love the way he translates his temperament into his Songs. I wrote all of these tunes especially for Sanju. "

Good luck, Sanju and Anand! * happy *

Filmfare 7.2.2008: "I want my freedom"

Filmfare, February 7, 2008

"I want my freedom"

He's back in the noise and bustle of the studios. And no matter what its critics blaspheme about its fading appearance, it still looks gorgeous to eat. After a long, long time I see the Prince of Darkness again, and I feel nostalgic when I get hold of him and we remember old times. Clearly: knowing Sanju baba means loving him. If you get to know him better, you will discover a full grown rogue who lives life in oversize. As Suniel Shetty once told me, “Any other man would have broken under the pressure Baba has lived with all these years. For my part, I would have had a nervous breakdown long ago, but Baba has courage and is a fighter. He is truly strong. "

It is precisely this courage and fighting spirit with which he wins his fans who love him unconditionally. In casual conversation with his helpers and his beloved manyata, he looks like a man who has temporarily found peace, despite the lines of worry that have dug into his face.

Now that he's bailed out, life has finally gotten better for him. And he says: “It is a wonderful feeling to be free, and I can only advise everyone: freedom is something that you should value and never take for granted. Because you can't buy freedom, no matter how much money you have. Therefore one should cherish and cultivate one's freedom. Ask me, I felt ecstatic when I came out. "

Since it is his first day of filming for EMI after his release, his ecstasy knows no bounds: “It's great to be back on set, especially since I'm shooting for Suniel (Shetty), who is more than a brother to me, more than Family, and it's nice to see him on set as a producer. It's great to be back for Suniel. "

When asked how it feels to be called Baba (child) after two decades in the industry, he laughs uproariously: “I feel loved, I feel happy, I feel emotional, and that is just a great feeling. I never grew up for these people; i'm still the same old sanju baba. I think just being wholehearted has earned me so much respect from so many people, including my audience, the public, and the film industry. If I were all brains, then I wouldn't have all this love and affection. "

But that also took away a lot from him. If the speculation is to be believed, then when he needed money for his lawsuit, he discovered that he only owned ten shares in White Feather Films, his production company with Sanjay Gupta. He becomes philosophical: “Well, as far as White Feather Films and Sanjay Gupta are concerned, I would like to say: Gupta was like my younger brother. I had seen him go through rough times and advised him to go to a production company. It was my vision to see him grow up. I didn't want anything from White Feather Films. My vision was to see Sanjay Gupta on another level, and whether he used my name or whatever, I allowed him to because I wanted him to be where he is today. He's still my brother, but I had to get away from there now. He now has his professional status, and I'm happy for him. "

It is said that he has now given the go-ahead for Sanjay Dutt Productions. And if the rumors are to be believed, then his sisters Namrata and Priya jumped on the production train as did his girlfriend Manyata.

He explains, “Namrata and Priya have their own lives, and Manyata and I have our own lives. But we are family. Sanjay Dutt Productions started and I asked Manyata to take care of it. And she does a fantastic job. I am happy to have such support for the first time in my life. "

When you see the two of them together, holding hands, whispering tenderness in each other's ear between shoots and just happy in each other's company, then it's clear as the day that Sanju finally found his soulmate. His joy is increased by his mega-project list. He smiles: “Yes, I have a few good films.” But how does he plan to manage seven or eight films in a row? He shrugs his shoulders casually: “That depends on the films that are already in production. First I finish them, and then I turn to the rest. "

There is a lot of talk about his new look in Kidnap and also in EMI. But then again, he's always been a great look specialist. “Because I love to slip into my figure. Like the sattarbhai that I play in EMI, for example. I imagined him the way I am now dressed (he points to himself and his clothes), and with this image in mind I decided on my look. "

The film that seems to have worked wonders for him is Munnabhai. No other character of his has ever been so popular. His friends claim that after designing the role, he incorporated the characteristics of the Munnabhai.

He agrees, “Yes, I am Munnabhai. There is nothing to be said about it. Vinod (Chopra) told me from day one that I was this character, that I literally embody it. And I think he was right. I've done two Munnabhai films and I think Munna is me. Munna is the most amazing guy there is. He is so helpful and soulful. He loves his family and friends. It is amazing how Munnabhai came into my life. I was supposed to be playing Jimmy's (Shergill) role, but when I got to Vinod's office, he suddenly offered me the role of Munna. I was surprised, but also happy about it. And it was an excellent experience for me. "

He adds, “The chemistry on set was so nice. Arshad (Warsi), me and all the artists worked together harmoniously.It was a nice atmosphere and Raju Hirani is such a wonderful director and person. Vinod is a close family friend, as is an older brother to me. When my father died, it would have been my job as his only son to wash the body, but I just couldn't. I asked Vinod to do it, and he did. That's how important he is to me. "

After that, our conversation turns to his lawsuit, and he's blown away by the support he's got from the industry as well as his fans. He gets emotional: “My parents always told me: More important than being the number one actor or becoming a super successful businessman is to be a good person. Everything else comes later. And that got stuck in me. Success or not, I've always tried to stay on the ground. I think the more successful you get, the more humble you have to get. And I think that made a big difference. "

Occasionally, however, he has fallen for sentimental stories because of this attitude. So-called buddies took advantage of him. But he justifies himself: “I think it's important to forgive others. I have the ability to forgive, which I think people usually find difficult. I believe in giving people a chance even if they screw up. My attitude is: learn from your mistakes and carry on. "

It must be difficult to cope with the situations he is in over and over again; a lesser person would have broken under the pressure. He assures: “It was tough, but you can't let the situations drag you down. Life goes on. You have to learn your lesson and then try to become a better person afterward. This is what i do I just keep going. Look, if someone hits me in the face tomorrow, I can't drag this around with me for six months and be mad at the guy. Either you forget or you forgive the guy. This is my method. "

And while we're talking about going on, he seems to be getting closer to his once fabulous body. “It's mostly for the movie, but in the long run it will be better for me, too,” he admits. “I'm doing a film for Ashtavinayak Films that is mostly set on the beach. I have a few months to work on my body and get in shape. I get people from abroad to train me. "

Sanjay has been criticized for letting himself go. Did that encourage him to get back in shape? He shrugs his shoulders: “If you've been through what I've been through in life, then at some point you just can't be in the mental shape for a gym. No chance. To do this, you have to be in the right frame of mind. I shed my Rambo image and switched to the Al-Pacino image, but my colleagues still seem to be in the Rambo phase. You should now leave this old image of me behind you. "

Then he gets emotional: “My biggest grief these days is that my parents are no longer with me. We all miss her. But my greatest happiness today is to be back on the set, back with my family, who are this film industry to me. ”And what is his greatest wish today? "I want my freedom!" It breaks out of him with a seriousness that breaks your heart.

And what about his wedding plans? “The day I get married, the whole world will find out, I promise.” And we'll put an end to that because he's called in front of the camera. Because as the wise man says: The show has to keep rolling.

Stardust 4/1999: Let's talk about sex!

Stardust, April 1999

Let's talk about sex!

Sex symbol: SANJAY DUTT

Favorite sex symbols: Liz Hurley, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Sylvester Stallone - especially in Rambo II, then the woman in The Mask of Zorro, Catherine Zeta-Jones; and Arnold Schwarzenegger - he's my God.

Sexual Fantasy: The moment you encounter your fantasy, it is no longer a fantasy; it becomes reality, and then I deal with it like any other courtship. It is so easy to fantasize about something, but reality is something completely different. And I think I'll cross my bridges when I get to them instead of wasting my energy on fantasizing about the future. But I am sure that if I ever meet someone suitable, the first thing I will do is to pass out. Then I'll lie down and fly up to the sky. But before that there are a couple of candlelight dinners for which I book the entire restaurant.

Sexual nightmare: To be whipped by a 1.80 meter tall Amazon in leather clothing, probably Jack The Ripper's daughter Jill The Stripper!

Sexual Turns On: Sex is between the ears, so intelligent women turn me on. And since I'm a fitness freak, I like women who also have good bodies, who are tall and fit and personable. She has to flirt with me in a way that drives me crazy with passion. Your sensuality must be teasing and mocking, just below the surface. Since I was brought up conservatively and my taste is more orthodox, I find something more provocative than a sexuality that jumps right in the face and that rather scares me off. If you imagine that my first sexual fantasy was holding hands with my child love Kusum Bhambray! The definition of “sexy” is actually in the eye of the beholder anyway. Some women will find me sexy and some won't. I don't consider myself a sex symbol. Magazines, especially the Stardust, call me a sex symbol. But sex symbols are the "Full Monty" strippers and the Chippendale dancers. I never tore my clothes off except for fight scenes. I never posed for ads like Calvin Klein. Women don't throw themselves at my neck. When I was a bachelor, I also had to work hard recruiting the girls to get them. It all just depends on the right person making a click. But thank you for seeing me as a stallion, even if I don't take it as a compliment. Anyone who works out and has a good physique can be called a sex symbol. Any guy on the street who wears tight jeans and a fitted shirt can look sexy. We movie stars make more headlines and our photos are everywhere, so people see us as sex symbols. They project our movie characters onto our real selves. I read somewhere that when a girl sees that a simple boy is talking to two girls, she desperately wants to talk to him too. But if a smart guy is a loner, then she doesn't feel like talking to him. It's all a question of image. An image can attract or repel a woman. But an image doesn't show the true self. When you get to know someone and like them on a personal level, then you can decide whether or not they will turn you on. You can't base your decision on whether or not to like someone by the number of girls around them. A lot of people think that muscular men are idiots, but before you embrace such stereotypes, talk to people first and form your own opinion because everyone is different.

Sanjay to star in Charles and I

Quelle in English

According to a report by the Mumbai Mirror, Sanju is slated to star in People Pictures' thriller Charles and I, which is said to be based on the life of the notorious criminal Charles Sobhraj. Directed by Prawaal Raman (Darna Mana Hai), who also writes the script. It aims to tell the story of an enigmatic criminal who is chased by the police through half a dozen countries.

Prawaar Raman: "The main character of the film is a complex character - a charming man with a dangerous mind and dangerous intentions. Finding the right actor who can portray all of these qualities at the same time was difficult. The only one who, in my opinion, met these requirements met, is Sanjay Dutt. "

Aditya Shastri, CEO People Pictures: "Sanjay Dutt is a fantastic person and a gifted actor. We are delighted that he will play the lead role in Charles and I."

Charles and I is a story about two men. One kills and deceives people for pleasure and to become world famous, the other does not want to stop at anything to bring down the killer. The actor for this second main role has not yet been determined. Filming is scheduled to begin early next year.

That would fit in any case - between Double Dhamaal and Gangs of London ...

Sanjay Films Bermuda Triangle

Sanjay Films: Rumors? canceled?
Sanjay movies: rumors? shelved? stalled?

21 Battle of Saragarhi - From Ashes to Glory (planned)
Some years ago, Sanjay Dutt Productions and GS Entertainment planned to produce a period film based on the battle of Saragarhi which was fought during the Tirah Campaign on 12 September 1897 between 21 Sikhs of a Sikh Regiment of British India, defending an army post, and 10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen in a last stand; all the Sikh soldiers fell. Rohit Jugraj was to direct the film with Sanjay as the lead actor in the role of Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the Sikh onslaught in that battle. Bunty Walia from G S Entertainment, who is a Sikh, had been dreaming of making a film on this event for a long time; when Rohit Jugraj appraoched him with the same idea, they talked to Sanjay about it as they wanted him to play the Sikh leader. Sanjay liked the story and was even wiling to produce the film. For the huge amount of special effects many technicians from abroad were hired, some of them having assisted on the Hollywood film 300; Rohit was in talks with special effects supervisor Chris Watts and cinematographer Christopher Doyle. With a budget estimated to be around Rs 200 crore (Bunty: "We have to pay 21 actors for this film!") This was likely to become one of Hindi Cinema's most expensive films. The shooting will planned to be in Morocco as the topography of Morocco is quite similar to the topography of the North West Province where the Battle of Saragarhi took place. But in 2009, also due to the high costs, the project had been shelved.
In April 2012, however, Sanjay confirmed that he still wants to make this film and that he and Ajay Devgn now want to produce it together.

72 Hours (3/2009)

The protagonist's plunge into a haze of drugs and then his redemption stuck an immediate chord in Sanjay Dutt's heart . " The third segment of the plot will see Sanjay taking on drug cartels from the world over. "It's a film where in a fictional language, Sanjay Dutt will tell the youth how dangerous drug abuse is and how drugs need to be destroyed." Ahmed Khan hopes to get Naseeruddin Shah and Irrfan Khan for the roles of the drug barons.

(The historical Khalistan background is known from the movie Maachis.) Sanjay is said to play one of several "real-life cops" who fought against terrorism and extremism in Punjab at the height of the Khalistan movement. Amitabh Bachchan is said to belong to this group of cops. After SOAL, Lakhia seems to be planning another brutally violent caliber of this kind.
EDIT August 16, 2009: According to Apoorva Lakhia, this project never existed ...
Produced by Sohail Maklai / Ashtavinayak, this film by Apoorva Lakhia will be a movie on the cops who battled Khalistani extremism. The terror situation in Punjab during the 1970s and 80s will be recreated through rigorous research on that period and is to occupy the same gritty real-time-real-space as Shootout At Lokhandwala. Sanjay will be playing a real-life cop, one among a group who fought terror and extremism in Punjab. Amitabh Bachchan is also likely to play a real-life cop in this “period’ sharp shooter which will be in the same genre as Shootout At Lokhandwala with a similar gritty brutal and violent route.
