Sanjay Dutt

Son of Bollywood actor Sunil Dutt and Nargis Dutt, Sanjay Dutt had a checkered life. Drug scene, TADA and what not, Sanjay was the perfect anti-hero material, a wish which materialised in Subhash Ghai’s ‘Khalnayak’ (1992), where he played a criminal with a heart of gold Ballu and in Mahesh Manjrekar’s ‘Vaastav’ (1999), where Sanjay once again reprised the role of a man who was a victim of circumstances. In ‘Vaastav’, Sanjay plays Raghu, who runs a pav-bhaji stall and accidentally kills a customer, who turns out to be the brother of a local goon.

With his debut film ‘Deewana’ (1992) turning out to be a huge hit, SRK was arrived.
